Conservation

我們視點滴的地球資源都極為重要,
所以「點滴是生命」會有以下措施:

減少使用

為了減少製造垃圾, 大會鼓勵參賽者盡量避免使用不能回收的冷氣保溫棉(豬腸)包裹肩帶作比賽; 比賽當天大會亦不會派發即棄杯及餐具,參賽者可參考以下做法:
 

冷氣保溫棉(豬腸) → 再用毛巾/舊衫
即棄杯 → 可重用水杯/水樽 
即棄餐具 → 自備餐具

循環再用

活動當日大會設置的橫額及路標均使用耐用物料製作,並於活動中重用。大會亦繼續與綠惜地球合作,鼓勵參加者支持資源分類回收,在檢查站及終點將設有膠樽及鋁罐回收箱, 收集清空的膠樽及鋁罐回收再造成原材料, 活動廢紙亦將被收集及回收再造。

物盡其用

大會在檢查站及終點設有果皮回收桶,收集橙皮、蕉皮及雪梨芯,運往有機農場堆肥。活動後仍可食用的剩餘食物將送到惜食堂,讓他們再轉贈予有需要人士。

We treasure all the resources on Earth,
therefore, several measurements will be adopted in the race:

Waste Reduction

For waste reduction, we encourage all participants to avoid using non-recyclable foam rubber to cover shoulder straps. Disposable utensils will NOT be distributed on the Race Day. Participants can take these alternatives:


Foam rubber → Towel/old clothes
Disposable cup → Reusable cup/ water bottle
Disposable utensils → Bring your own utensils

Recycle

All banners and signage will be made with durable materials and be recycled for future use. This year, we will cooperate with The Green Earth to encourage recycling. Recycle bins will be placed at checkpoints and finishing point. Papers will also be collected and recycled.

Food Handling

We have recycle bins for fruit skin at checkpoints and finishing point to collect orange skin, banana skin and pear cores as fertilizers in organic farms. Post event, all unconsumed food will be sent to Food Angel, benefiting the people in need.

Surplus Water

Every unopened bottled water will be handled by:


18.9L: Sending to TWGHS Tai Tung Pui Social Service Building
5L: Sending to the following elderly homes: Tung Fong Home for the Aged; Mary Help of Christian Church
