Marine Conservation

It is no joke – the plastic bag levy starts on April 1.

April is also Ocean Appreciation Month so it is a perfect time to consider supporting some of the passionate volunteers who dedicate their spare time (spare time – in Hong Kong?!) persevering to protect and preserve our marine environment … and they could always use a little more assistance in any form to fuel their efforts …
