plastic disaster

 

早前因為颱風的影響,一輛運貨船上的一百五十噸塑膠原材料粒被吹進大海。
政府雖然表明膠粒本身無毒,但膠粒卻會吸收大海中的有毒物質,而慢慢變成有毒。
可惜政府遲遲未有將事件公開,令事件未能在第一時間作出對應。
若果膠粒繼續吸收有毒物,再被小魚吃掉而進入食物鏈,將會對生態做成很嚴重的破壞。
有多個環保團體自行發起清潔行動,現時大約清理了1/3的膠粒,但還需努力!

150 tonnes of plastic pellets from containers knocked off a ship and washed onto beaches of hong kong during the worst typhoon in the past 13 years. only a third of these potentially toxic plastic pellets has been cleaned up after almost two weeks of this accident. with the government’s lack of public notice and super slow action, hundreds of volunteers were cleaning up beaches before the other government departments start to act.
