In an article about a more sustainable Christmas the ‘South China Morning Post’ has interviewed two Island School students and their family, reporting on their plans for the festive season.
Kale’a and Noelani Pollard in Years 9 and 8 respectively live in Shek O. In the article they explain that the drive to adopt a greener lifestyle ramped up last September when Super Typhoon Manghut literally spewed waste from the sea into their lives.
“When Mangkhut happened, everyone was on the beach clearing rubbish. There was so much of it,” says Noelani. “It was a wake-up call that got the clean-up movement moving.”
