Ban Expanded Polystyrene (Styrofoam) in Hong Kong

Launched: 07 December 2017


Expanded polystyrene pollution in Hong Kong has reached an unacceptable level. A complete ban on expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) in Hong Kong is necessary for our water quality, the health of the ecosystem and Hong Kong's public, the safety of water sports enthusiasts and marine wildlife, tourists' experience, pollution control, and the impact on local landfills. 


Attention: K.S. Wong, Hong Kong Secretary for the Environment

As a concerned group of water enthusiasts and citizens, we are seeing firsthand the unprecedented and unacceptable level of expanded polystyrene pollution in our waters and environment. In a motion of public mandate, we demand a complete ban on expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) in Hong Kong.

We care very much about the water quality of our beaches, waterways, and ocean. We would like them to be free of Expanded Polystyrene pollution. Public health and the health of the marine ecosystem depends on responsible stewardship of our environment. 

We ask that you take action on this issue to ensure that our Hong Kong environment continues to be a gem of beauty and bounty. We envision that the Hong Kong Government can be an example to the Asian and global community in doing their part in eradicating expanded polystyrene pollution.
