Ocean3C strives to sensitize Hong Kong citizens on marine pollution and local waste issues. In connection with Cleanshorelines from the Environmental Protection Department (EPD HK), O3C regularly organizes beach clean-ups and recycling events, to not just collect waste but also educate on the necessity to change habits on land and reduce consumption of single-use plastics.

To increase our impact, we promote collaboration between local associations focusing on different issues: ghost nets, single use plastics, recycling etc.. During our beach clean-ups, we collect waste and sort out PET and HDPE for local recycling every time possible, weight all trash and make sure they are collected by government services.

Public events

Through territory wide events, Ocean3C invites citizens to witness the marine pollution HK shores are facing and invites them to link it to their own consumption. Indeed, 80% of plastics found at sea are coming from land . Free and open to all, those events welcome volunteers as individuals or in team.
