HKCEC announces “Think Before Plastic” initiative
29 August 18 HKCEC
HML is introducing a new sustainability initiative ‘Think Before Plastic’ to cut plastic consumption at the HKCEC. Starting from 1 July 2018, plastic cutlery and straws consumption are replaced by non-plastic alternatives in all the HKCEC restaurant outlets, resulting in an expected drop of 1.6 million in total plastic consumption in a year. Besides, the sale of plastic bottled beverage is also ruled out. HML encourages organisers, exhibitors and visitors to go green, by making use of the 18 water fountains available in the Centre, and bringing their own bottles for free refills.
