April 2023 marks the 53rd anniversary of Earth Day, a time for us to reflect on the benefits of nature to our lives. Taking advantage of Earth Month, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) advocates that the public “Take a Break”, connect with nature and establish an unforgettable connection with the natural world! Let’s all take a moment to reflect on the importance of nature in our lives and to pause from the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse ourself in our city’s natural beauty . Let's rediscover the joy of spending time outdoors, truly appreciate Hong Kong’s green spaces and recognize the connection between nature and our physical and mental well-being. In doing so, we can bond with family and friends and create precious memories that will last a lifetime.
From 15th April, 2023 to 14th May, 2023，TNC is collaborating with restaurants near urban green areas to launch the "Earth Month Picnic Set". Each set contains TNC picnic mats specially designed to celebrate Earth Month, two portions of snacks and drinks, along with reusable containers and utensils. The sets will allow us to enjoy nature, cultivate the habit of reducing waste, lessen the burden on our planet and create a greener, more livable city together.
Check out below for the details of Earth Month picnic event and some "green ideas" for your daily life.
