This week we are celebrating new growth.

If you haven’t heard the chainsaws or seen the white bits everywhere, you are living in a different Hong Kong than ours. Our volunteers are taking small comfort in the weight of polystyrene when cleaning it from our beaches and shore lines.

It’s a good day when the phone rings with a volunteer group request and we can find them a beach to clean within minutes. That was today. It will be a better day when the phone rings and no more cleaning is required.

This month, we will enter year 18 of HK heartbeat and the time has flown by. The conversations have changed since the days when I hid this geeky little project from most people. When I came across an old email the other day, I remembered my initial intention and am pleased to be on track with the organic growth.

To celebrate the milestone, I am offering launch rates for all of October.

In the coming weeks, I will be launching a new series of guides with tips and tricks for life in the fast lane, including waste reduction, plastic replacements and mindfulness. Get in touch if you’d like to advertise.
