During G.E.M.'s “Get Everybody Moving 2011”, an average of 5,000 glow sticks were sold every night. That is over 25,000 glow sticks for just five Hong Kong concerts, producing almost 1 ton of plastic and toxic chemicals! Imagine the large amount of glow stick pollution that all of the combined concerts in Hong Kong produce!   This year, see what G.E.M. did in her five concerts in Hong Kong with the new Glow Stick app which creates a glow stick on your smart phone.  Because of this, it is estimated that over 25,000 pieces of plastic (glow sticks) were prevented from becoming trash in our landfills.
