According to the report, plastic bags have become the number one beach garbage in Hong Kong

a cleaning campaign report released by the environmental protection promotion association, an environmental protection organization in Hong Kong, on the 24th showed that plastic bags have become the number one beach garbage in Hong Kong, with an increase of about 35% over last year, while the amount of construction waste has doubled year-on-year

the environmental protection promotion association held the annual "international coast cleaning campaign" from July 16 to November 11. 14000 volunteers from schools, enterprises, non-governmental organizations and other sectors carried out 67 cleaning activities in 43 locations in Hong Kong, cleaning more than 57000 kilograms of garbage for the coast of Hong Kong

the results of the activity showed that plastic bags ranked first among the top ten beach garbage in Hong Kong, with 7645 pieces, accounting for 12.5% of all garbage collected; Followed by foam boxes and canvas, accounting for 9.62% and 7.31% respectively

in addition, 2857 pieces of construction waste were found in this activity, which doubled the number of 123 pieces last year, making Fraunhofer Institute of chemical technology always at the forefront of composite material utilization research; The number of cigarette butts decreased significantly, which may be related to the increase of tobacco tax

the conference said that the number of plastic bags picked up from the sea has been rising since 2008, reflecting the lack of support for the recycling industry, the weak environmental awareness of Hong Kong people, and the lack of public recycling facilities. A large number of plastic bags that prohibit sintering and wear and reduce power consumption can lead to suffocation of fish and affect the ecology
