Our Past Programmes
Throughout the years we have been involved in numerous ways to improve the environment.
HeroesToo EcoDesign Competitions
HeroesToo, in collaboration with our social enterprise partner, SolutionsToo Ltd., launched a series of Sustainable Design Competitions (SDC). The aim of the competitions was to encourage talented artists to incorporate sustainability into their designs as well as spreading this message to the community.
This is our unique and successful tool to restore and preserve our environment through encouraging each and every individual to be aware of their habits and reduce their resource consumption.
Education in Universities
Since our inception in 2010, HeroesToo has been actively promoting environmental education in schools and universities. We have worked with final year students on converting individual plastic usage to a measurable common denominator - our carbon footprint.
HeroesToo Reforestation Programmes
The HeroesToo Reforestation and Forest Protection Programme was initiated on 27th July 2010 in collaboration with the Guangdong Academy of Forestry in Lashi Village.
In partnership with the DO School, global Plastic Pollution Coalition and St. James Settlement, HeroesToo had a unique opportunity on International DO Day to encourage the community of entrepreneurs, eco-preneurs, environmentalists, social innovators, green techies, eco-warriors and responsible citizens in Hong Kong to come together and to Do Good by working on reducing plastic waste through a purposely crafted Action Plan workshop and create a solution. The workshop was conducted by trained facilitator Thomas Tang of Do School.
School Bottle Wrap Competition
Student winners of the HeroesToo School Bottle Wrap Design Competition were presented with their prizes and the beautiful eco-friendly stainless steel drinking bottles with their winning design on them.
HeroesToo Action Day
Our HeroesToo Action Day Festival held at Kwun Tong Promenade, Kowloon East, on Saturday, 18 May 2019 offered a wide array of family attractions including health and eco-conscious activities for all. Eco-art workshops, face painting, healthy cookies baking workshop, cycling, educational game booths and a forum by our younger generation to stimulate action for climate change in Hong Kong! Hong Kong’s favourite egg waffles were given away to those taking eco-action and we broke the Guiness Book of Records for the most waffles made in an hour!
Action Day Student Eco Forum
