1. No plastic! No bottle water start from Dec 2017

In order to maintain the concept of “Plastic Ocean” activity held in last month. The vending machine on G/F of South Block started not to sell bottle water from December 2017. We encourage all WS-ees to say no to plastic bottled water and bring their own bottles to drinking fountain on 2/F to fill water. Let’s follow the slogan "BYO -Bring Your Own”!

2. Ladder Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas! This year, Green Life Ambassadors made a DIY Ladder Christmas Tree to decorate the College lobby. The Christmas tree was made by old floor boards from WS Courtyard, old wooden ladder not complying with the safety requirements, reusable Christmas decorations and pine cones collected in CUHK campus.

We hope this Ladder Christmas Tree can bring out the green message for raising our awareness of REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. Let’s go green in our daily life!
