Green Lunar New Year (LNY) Fairs

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) has been organising the annual Lunar New Year (LNY) fairs gathering hundreds of stalls at various districts for citizens to purchase a variety of goods including flowering plants, decorative products and traditional festive food, etc. to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

In view of the considerable amount of waste being disposed of after the annual LNY fairs, the Environmental Campaign Committee (the ECC) and the Environmental Protection Department (EPD), funded by the Environment and Conservation Fund and with the assistance from FEHD, have organised the “Green LNY Fair” Programmes to enhance environmental awareness among stall operators and the general public from 2017 to 2021. The Programmes comprise a number of green activities / measures that aim at promoting waste reduction at source, proper recycling and resource sharing during festive celebrations -

The programme contents included:

  • Promotional booth
  • Green Stall Scheme
  • Shopping bag sharing stands
  • Reusable tableware lending services
  • Public education on waste separation and clean recycling
  • Promotion of food waste, yard waste and polyfoam recycling to stall owners
  • Collection and redistribution of unsold goods or resources
