Hello Sir,
Silent Spring
60 years ago, Rachel Carson conducted field study and wrote her book "Silent Spring” (《寂靜的春天》)published in 1962 to expose the environmental risks of DDT insecticide that killed birds, eagles, bees and wildlife and posed health threat to human in her U.S. homeland.  In the ending chapter, she urged the rethink about future of mankind by minimising chemical abuse and ecological degradation.

Used Clothes Recycling Programme

A total of more than 87 tonnes of clothes were collected during our "Save Our Santa” campaign held in December last year. In order to reuse resources, we co-organised a clothes sharing event with HKSKH St. Thomas’ Church Pastoral Centre in Sham Shui Po on 18th January. We are pleased to have many participants on the day to choose suitable clothing for the winter. In addition to that, the activity also called for public’s action to donate their used clothes, to help facilitating a circular economy.
Due to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, all of our used clothes recycling banks at hospitals in Hong Kong have been suspended until further notice. If you wish to donate clothes, please check out our website to find the locations of our used clothes recycling banks. Also, remember to wash the clothes thoroughly and pack them properly before putting them in our recycling banks.
