Service Schedule of the Green Advertising Truck is updated every month. Community participants are welcome to visit our truck, bring recyclables and reusables for collection, and experience the green education games.
Recyclables are thoroughly categorized into 17 types in the Look For Green Advertising Truck. After cleaning recyclables at home, community participants can bring them to the Truck, categorize and put in the right recycling bin with the guide of our frontline helpers.
*Recyclables collected are delivered to government-registered recyclers for subsequent processing (Details please refer to What does “Look For Green” look for?)）
Next to the Green Advertising Truck, a wooden cart is setup for free-sharing and donation of reusable items. Pre-owned books, clothes and other items (e.g. household products) are cleaned and placed in the “Look For Goods” Reusable-sharing Zone for free-sharing to promote community reuse and reduction of wastage.
Electrical Appliances, Clothes (>80% new), Books, Cooler Bags, Recycle Bags, Baby Products, other brand-new items and special collection items (Details please refer to “What does “Look For Green” look for?)
Community participants are welcome to try out the interactive games in The Green Advertising Truck designed for environmental education. With fun and joyfulness, community participants will learn about the steps of recycling, categorization of recyclables, daily waste reduction tips and useful green knowledge.
In a household background setup, community participants are invited to clean up the house and decide if the different common household items are recyclable or not. The interesting setting makes the game popular among parents and children. By placing the corresponding magnets into the “recyclable area” and “non-recyclable area”, children will find out that many household wastes like food packaging, toilet paper tubes and plastic bags are all recyclable while having fun. Bringing the game experience to real life, children may even become the new “environmental activist” at home, leading the family to live a green lifestyle starting with daily recycling!
In this throwing game, sticky balls are given to community participants for throwing at the targets that represent various choice of daily activities. According to their environmental impacts, positive or negative carbon emission scores are accumulated. With the goal to minimize carbon emission, community participants will learn that “carbon reduction” is not far from us, but rather something affected by the various choices in our daily lives. From the tiny choices of what food to eat, which electrical appliances to choose, to the choice of travel destination, they all create impact to carbon emission!
Incorporating the “More” and “Less” in green living into the “Connect 4” traditional boardgame, community participants will learn about examples of good green lifestyle habits in the race.
The small steps of every individual will accumulate and bring big impact to the environment. Whether it be positive or negative, it is us who could make a difference. Therefore, we should start today to make the planet a better place to live in.
“Checking-in” is a trending activity to share ideas with friends, with interesting props and the catchy Green Advertising Truck as background, community participants are invited to take photos and share on Facebook, Instagram, MeWe and other social media with an App. By tagging and encouraging friends to join green living and participate in the “Look For Green” environmental services, your can help to promote “Look For Green” in an effective and paperless way. We appreciate every “Check-in” and the involvement and support shown behind.
