長年使用日拋式隱形眼鏡會產生大量塑膠垃圾,於是近年有隱形眼鏡專賣店推出隱形眼鏡殼及鋁箔片回收計劃,在不同地區設置回收站,鼓勵回收這類塑膠垃圾。我平日使用隱形眼鏡後會清潔廢棄的隱形眼鏡殼,以便一次過回收。

疫情之下,外帶食物的次數大大提升,包裝食物要用到大量即棄餐具和膠袋,除了產生塑膠垃圾的問題,亦有塑化劑攝入量過多的疑慮,所以我買外賣時會盡量自備餐具和保溫壺,能夠同時解決環保和健康問題。

中大校園內設置了多個飲水機,為同學提供飲用水,所以我平日上課會自備水樽,代替購買支裝水,既可以節省金錢,又能減少塑膠垃圾。

Recycling probably is one of the most significant elements in the sustainability and today I try to put those used plastic bottles into the RVM (Reverse Vending Machine) nearby my living place. I appreciate the concept of allowing consumers to feed in used plastic bottles for instant rebate since it could give citizens economic incentives to develop daily green habits. Let’s record our green footprints every day!

Energy Dashboard

An energy dashboard is developed to monitor the electricity usage in the College area:

Glass Window Film

In the summer of 2013, the glass curtain wall of LG1 fitness room and LG2 student dining room of Lee Woo Sing College was coated with a layer of infrared heat insulation film. The heat insulation film coating reduces the indoor temperature by 2-5°C, which saves the electricity cost of air-conditioning and the energy.
