Families show love for nature

RESIDENTS of Hay Tak Estate have been enrolled in an 'Accredited Green Family Scheme' by Friends of the Earth (FoE).

Under an environmental community outreach programme, FoE aims to motivate a target population of about 23,000 people within a time frame of 18 months to adopt eco-friendly attitudes and behaviour.

FoE director Mei Ng, said last year's pilot programme - 'Use Less Plastic Bags' at the estate was very successful.

'With the Accredited Green Family Scheme we want to encourage family participation in a variety of green activities and workshops.

'The families which demonstrate adequate knowledge and actively participate in the year-long programme will be accredited with the Model Green Family honour,' Mrs Ng added.
