On September 21, the Clean Up the World Weekend (CUW Weekend) of 2019, Mr. Wang Xiaoye, director of China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) Green Children volunteer group in Baiyangdian and China Conservation Area for Snow Crane at Baiyangdian (CCAfa), organized a special family-based activity under the topic of Pickup Plastic and Reduce Plastic, with the participation of teenagers, children and their parents.


Different from the traditional waste pickup activities, this event lays stress on the philosophy of waste reduction encouraged by CBCGDF, rather than simply picking up garbage. To reduce waste means to cut unnecessary plastic product consumption from the source, which is the key to garbage treatment and environmental protection.


Mr. Wang Xiaoye also made a detailed comparison between recyclable and non-recyclable wastes and described potential problems existing in garbage sorting in daily life, to help parents and children acquire a deeper understanding of waste production.


Moreover, Mr. Wang introduced how to become a registered CBCGDF teenager volunteer to those children who show great interest in public interest activities. He encouraged and motivated them to join the CBCGDF volunteer group to advance environmental protection.
