SDG #12 Responsible Consumption and Production

Hong Kong is facing a plastic waste crisis. More than 11,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste was dumped into landfills daily in 2018, including more than 2,300 tonnes of waste plastics. The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) has estimated that existing landfill sites will reach capacity this year, and up to 90 percent of local plastic recyclers are closing down due to shrinking market and poor collection services (Low, 2020). It is an urgent problem contributed by corporations, communities and households alike, and we need stronger incentives and effective methods to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!

To enter this category, please respond to the following challenge statement:
How might we reduce waste production?
