Take Part in a Textile Upcycling Workshop for Family Volunteer Day

This family volunteer activity is made possible through generous funding from Disney. 

Description: The textile industry is the second biggest source of pollution in the world. In Hong Kong alone 110,000 tonnes of clothing and textiles are sent to landfill each year. On November 17th bring your family to an upcycling workshop which will show our children the importance of sustainable choices and how unwanted clothing can be given a second life!
During the workshop each volunteer will play a part in creating collaborative pieces for under-resourced communities. From mats to potholders and keychains, every piece will be made from discarded clothing. The morning will begin with an educational briefing from our NGO partner Lizzie Bee.
Requirements: This family volunteer activity is for children aged 5+ years accompanied by an adult. The guardian should sign up to this activity (after registering with HandsOn Hong Kong) and then send an email to hohk@handsonhongkong.org with their own name plus the name and age of their child/children and any other accompanying adult(s). Volunteers not accompanied by a child may not be accepted. Both English and Cantonese speakers are welcome to join.


內容:布料產業是造成污染的第二大來源。 在香港,每年政府填埋十一萬頓的衣服及布料。十一月十七日,在這一天,你們可以帶著自己的孩子參加這個回收布料的工作坊,讓孩子們了解到可持續發展的重要性以及廢棄的布料如何重生再造成美麗的產品。

上午將首先進行一個由我們的合作夥伴 Lizzie Bee主持的介紹。義工們將會參與以及創造出美麗的工藝品,他們將會送至低收入社區。所有的工藝品/生活用品都是利用廢棄衣料製造。

活動要求:這個家庭志願者活動是為5歲以上的兒童在成人陪同下進行的。 監護人應註冊此項活動(在HandsOn香港註冊後),然後發送電子郵件至hohk@handsonhongkong.org,提供自己的名字加上其子女的姓名和年齡以及其他隨行成人的姓名和年齡。 由於活動鼓勵家庭義工,家庭義工將會優先被考慮。 歡迎廣大英文和粵語人士加入。
