According to a HKU research team, Hong Kong’s excessive appetite for meat causes the city to be one of the world’s highest greenhouse gas emitter. 3382 tons of food waste are disposed of in landﬁlls each day in Hong Kong. This is eqivalent to the weight of 7.3 fully-loaded Boeing 747s.
The fast fashion scene in HK is also damaging the environment. More than 340 tons of textile waste is dumped each day into the city’s overﬂowing landﬁlls, according to the city’s Environmental Protection Department.
