Greeners Action conducted a survey on single-use plastics distributed by restaurants, and the result showed that citizens consumed enormous amount of single-use plastic cutleries and containers in their daily life. It is estimated that over 46 million single-use plastics are disposed in Hong Kong every week, including plastic straws, plastic cutleries, plastic food containers and take-away plastic bags. The survey also revealed that the respondents recognized the overflowing plastic problem, but they had not changed their habit and the restaurants distributed single-use plastics for free which lead to the failure to reduce waste at source. The government is reviewing plastic bag levy and will legislate the municipal solid waste (MSW) charging, which is believed to provide an economic incentive for the public and the restaurants to reduce the use of single-use plastics.
