Beach Clean-up

Category: Company News

The old saying goes, “it’s good to give back” but in this case “it is important to take it back!”

If we want to thrive on this planet, we must realise how big our footprints really are!

Here at Velotrade we are not only enabling our clients and platform users to take part in the ESG transition, but we are also engaging in activities with direct and immediate impact.

Autumn Clean-up at Lap Sap Wan

Following the success of the first Velotrade cleanup in Sandy Bay, we are organising the second cleanup in November!

We are glad to see volunteering in beach-up becoming a more prevalent activity in Hong Kong. Thanks to the community’s effort, Dragon Beach is seen to have improved to a more pleasant condition during our final pre-event checking.

More locations with urgent needs are out there, waiting for our hard work. That’s why we’ve decided to update the upcoming cleanup venue to Lap Sap Wan near Cape D’Aguilar in Shek O.

A Priority Site: Refuse Accumulation Issue

Lap Sap Wan is one of the priority sites prone to refuse accumulation. The wind direction and water currents worsen the pollution problem in the coastal area nearby.

Regular cleanup activities are necessary to keep the site in good condition. The below image was taken during our site visit earlier in November 2021.

First ever Velotrade Clean-up

Sandy Bay 17th September 2021

On the 17th of September 2021 we organised our first beach clean-up in Sandy Bay (near Velotrade HQ). Although it was a Friday afternoon event, a lot of our friends showed up but many couldn’t attend.

With as little as a few hours of off-site work, we managed to pull a lot of trash from the beach.

It was also an excellent opportunity to chat with our friends on Velotrade’s latest initiatives on a casual Friday!
