Three NEW Rs: reduce, re-use, recycle

One side of The HKFYG Building in North Point looks out over Braemar Hill. Lush green countryside that tells us that Hong Kong is not all about concrete buildings and a reminder that this is something that we must preserve.

As our young people become more and more aware of the need for environmental protection, the risks of air and water pollution, and the principles of conservation and preservation, we need to set a good example for them, to show them that caring for the environment is more than simply "talking the talk".

All of us have a responsibility. At the Federation, we too are Going Green, with the best green practices, with green campuses, a green roof and green awareness. We ask that you share our message: to Reduce the amount of waste we produce; to Re-use rather than throw away items; and to Recycle as much as possible. These are the top Three Rs that we at the Federation, like many others around the world, now stand by.
