"Hiking ✖ Eco Clean Up" Action


Every year, more than 10 million visits are made to country parks. The huge number of visitors also brings overwhelming amount of rubbish to the countryside. The amount of country park refuse collected exceeds 3,000 tonnes per year.

Now and again, the countryside is filled with garbage left behind by inconsiderate visitors. However, even garbage thrown into rubbish bins, could be carried by wind or rummaged by wild animals (e.g. monkey, boar etc.), and scattered around countryside. In addition, wild animals may become accustomed to foraging rubbish bins, which greatly affects their habits, and increases the risk of them feeding on inedible garbage.

To keep our countryside clean, it is best to take our own garbage away. This is not only based on ecological and health considerations, but also reduces the burden on cleaning workers.

To promote "Take your litter home", participants will walk along hiking routes with baskets on their backs to collect garbage, and restore countryside cleanliness. In addition, environmental instructors will introduce the biota, environmental and geological features of the area. Activities will be held at irregular intervals.
