Green Monday Ambassador Program

About Green Monday

Green Monday is a social enterprise group that promotes and enables green, healthy and sustainable living. It is not about converting people to vegetarianism, nor does it require a drastic or overnight lifestyle change or a huge time commitment. Green Monday educates the public how easy and effective it is to reduce carbon footprint and improve health by giving up meat for just one day per week.

 

Green Monday Ambassador Program

The Hong Kong Girl Guide Association is collaborating with social enterprise Green Monday to launch a “Green Monday Ambassador” program, aiming at raising the Girl Guides’ awareness towards healthy eating and environmental protection.

 

This program brings out how vegetarian diet positively impacts personal health and the planet from different perspectives, including nutritional values, global warming and use of earth resources. Then, by unveiling the current eating habits of most Hong Kong people, this program encourages people to reduce food wastage and opt for “no shark fin”.

 

The second half of this program leads Girl Guides to put the ideas of going green once a week, reduce food wastage and opt for “no shark fin” into action and share these messages with family, schoolmates and friends so as to create a green living environment together.

 

After completion of the syllabus (By using a booklet for Brownie and creating a logbook by Guide or Ranger), a badge will be awarded by the Guider and to be worn on the back of the sash as souvenir badge.
