Step 1.1
Reduce Food Waste
Step 1.2
Eating less meat products
*Consumption of beef in Hong Kong is one of the highest ranks around the world

2 times more …….
7 times more than ………

Step 1.2
Eating Less Meat Products.
Result:
**86,000 cars emission = Hong Kongers without meat a day


Lower the carbon footprint caused by the diet

Goal
Preparation for journey
What is low carbon living?
-- To reduce the reliance of fossil fuel , eventually minimize the GHGs emission and culture a smarter way to live

-Cook more organic food

*Try our best to lessen the time to dine out at Christmas
*3,500 tones of food are wasted each day in Hong Kong,
especially in festival time

**According to Greeners - Action, 84% of the respondents committed that would not finish their meal causing waste
food, only 826 people would just finish it

Step 2.1
Reduce using wrapping paper.
Wrapping paper need a lot of steps to produce.

*The most carbon emission step is cutting down trees to make paper.*

**Deforestation reduce tons of tree ongoing photosynthesis.
Therefore, less carbon dioxide is converted back to oxygen.
Start Point
- We always use too much wrapping paper and other
disposable utensils during festival, especially

Christmas.


-
Green festival
promotes the reduction of waste and
keeping the day
GREEN
.

We can do several steps to reduce energy waste during celebrating our Christmas.

Follow the steps below. And you can have a green festival :D
Step 2.1
Reduce using wrapping paper
*We should not use too much wrapping paper.
We can use newspaper or recycled wrapping
paper instead of buying new ones.

*This not only can help reduce waste !
Step 2.2
Using "pure" paper wrapping
-Nowadays, wrapping paper are made to be attractive and colorful.

-Manufacturing company usually coat a layer of plastic on the surface to make it firm and add on special effects.

- Make it more easy to be recycled as paper with any coating could not be recycled.

Step 2.3
Sending environmental-friendly gift
-Electronic gift cards

-Choosing recycled material gifts
We all can enjoy a

green
Christmas:)

We would buy in a smarter way.
1. Lengthen its life span
2. Reuse the 'garbage’
3. Recycle

Instead of buying useless decorations for Christmas gift exchange
Electronic gift card is far useful
-The idea of gift card like the Octopus,

Step 3
Energy Saving Designs in Christmas Illumination
Step 3
Energy Saving Designs in Christmas Illumination
-Compact dimensions, longevity, and robust construction are on
the list but efficacy is the feature that comes up most in comparisons.

- It is cost effective for their extended useful life of >30,000 hours
(more than 10-15 years).


Although the unit price of an LED bulb is expensive
a compact fluorescent light bulb to LED electricity, enough to subsidize the cost of the lamp.
- Christmas tree ornaments and Christmas lights at home,
people should remember to

*turn off the lights before going to sleep.*

- Optional
