Roving exhibitions on "Sustainable Consumption of Biological Resources" (with photo)
The following is issued on behalf of the Environmental Campaign Committee:
     We rely heavily on biological resources in our daily lives as our food, clothing, furniture, medicine and many other things are derived from them. To enable the public to make wise and responsible choices in the use of biological resources and to change the current over-consumption pattern to fulfil societal needs for the present and the future, the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) has joined with the Environmental Protection Department and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) to organise roving exhibitions on "Sustainable Consumption of Biological Resources". The roving exhibitions, funded by the Environment and Conservation Fund, will be held from today (November 15) to late January 2019.
     In the exhibitions, Hong Kong-style trendy picture cards designed by local artist So Real Real and mounted on exhibition panels made with upcycled materials will be displayed to introduce to the general public to different aspects of a sustainable lifestyle, such as the consumption of fish certified by the Accredited Fish Farm Scheme like grey mullet, and the use of paper products accredited by the Forest Stewardship Council. It is hoped that members of the public will appreciate the importance of biological resources in our daily lives and also in the global environment, and hence the need to purchase sustainable products and practise green procurement.
     The dates and venues of the exhibitions are as follows:
