Scouts' beach cleanup at Waterfall Bay in Hong Kong. 150th Scouts all take part in the annual beach clean up at Waterfall Bay.Every day, between 1,000 and 2,000 tonnes of plastic end up in the sea in Hong Kong -- most of it washed down from land.
This year, the 15 scouts collected 36 bags of rubbish. There was a large amount of polystyrene boxes, mainly used as thermal storage by fishermen, as well as for fresh fruit and vegetables. Also lots of plastic bottles and plastic cutlery.
150th Scouts are part of the English-speaking Silver Jubilee District (SJD) and are based at St Stephen's Church in Stanley, on Hong Kong's south side.
