China is moving towards a circular economy for plastic, so let’s fast forward to a slowing economy in China, but one that is rapidly modernizing its methods of production, building new sectors that are leading in innovation, and even becoming robotic. Its resources are stretched, but now oil prices are low and are likely to stay that way for some time due to the decentralized oil pricing that fracking has brought to the equation, as well as the economies of scale that are now unfolding in the space of renewables, batteries, electric cars and the movement of smart money away from carbon-focused entities.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that 80% of the trash in our ocean comes from land, much of which gets washed into our waters from our streets and communities via drains, gutters and sewage systems. Given the recent high levels of trash on our beaches, this need for awareness and education comes at an important time. Our Hong Kong based project is one of the first environmental undertakings to combine local art with storm drain pollution awareness by putting colourful reminders next to the grates along the gutters. We believe these vibrant artistic messages will mark a new turning point in drawing awareness to the detrimental consequences of drainage pollution and littering, while reminding the Hong Kong public that we are all linked to the ocean, even when walking down our city’s streets.
