Lunch & Learn
Are you seeking an experienced guest speaker for an informative, educational and engaging
educational programme for your staff?
.The corporate events Plastic Free Seas organises are the foundation with which we run our education programs free of charge in schools. The financial support from companies allows us to offer a variety of programs from talks, art and science classes, action and awareness days to youth conferences in both local and international schools.
The charity is also funded through donations from individuals, foundations and corporate groups.
Why Book a Lunch & Learn?
Many companies host an employee Lunch & Learn event to engage staff in a discussion on important issues. Waste reduction and plastic usage are very important topics, both locally and globally.
Plastic marine pollution is a global issue that impacts everyone. Each year, 8 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans – much of this is single-use plastic used for packaging and consumption of food and beverages. The only way we are going to stop this global plastic waste problem is through consumer action and corporate responsibility. Recycling cannot be the solution, and as Hong Kong’s landfills are filling up quickly, we all need to be reducing the amount of single-use plastic we use.
Plastic Free Seas’ Lunch & Learn events cover these topics and more. With opportunities for discussion, participants will leave with a good understanding of the problem and how they can personally make a difference and be motivated to improve the waste reduction systems within the work place and in their personal lives.
About the Lunch & Learn
The 2023 fee for a weekday Lunch & Learn session is HK$2,000 and is facilitated by a senior Plastic Free Seas staff. Events can be arranged at any time of the day in your office to suit your needs. The one-hour session includes time for discussion. (There is a 50% weekend surcharge.)
If food is to be provided for the staff by the company, we request that you minimise the packaging waste created and go plastic free. You may wish to offer a vegetarian meal, or at minimum avoid seafood. It is becoming more common for caterers to offer waste-free food service, and foodpanda has reusable food containers for some of their delivery offerings. If participants are bringing in their own food, encourage the use of reusable containers. If you need help, let us know.
Since your talk our team have not used straws, takeaway containers, plastic drink bottles, disposable coffee cups and we did our own beach cleanup.
