國際、亞洲群星攜手 推動世界環境日「我.惜.食.」行動
與500香港市民一同承諾 珍惜食物、做個惜食世界公民!

聯合國環境規劃署 (UNEP) 把2013年世界環境日 (World Environment Day) 主題定為「我.惜.食.」(Think.Eat.Save),目標是呼籲全球世界公民「珍惜食物、善用廚餘」,改變現時全球 1/3糧食被浪費掉的可怕情況。

是次活動,在國際間得到巴西超模Gisele Bündchen (世上最高身價模特兒)、Ian Somerhalder (人氣美劇《吸血新世代》(The Vampire Diaries) 男主角) 及 聯合國環境規劃署親善大使內地女星李冰冰的全力支持。各人分別在自己的網誌、Twitter等社交媒體連月來為世界環境日造勢及呼籲粉絲珍惜食物。

現時香港每天有相等於 120 架雙層巴士重量的食物被棄置於堆填區,所以一眾香港名人亦即時響應聯合國的呼籲加入惜食行列。已經加入成為「惜食公民」的紅星包括有吳彥祖夫婦、甄子丹夫婦、方大同、官恩娜、恭碩良、鄭丹瑞、周柏豪、尹子維、24味及連詩雅等。聯合國亦於官方網頁 (http://unep.org/wed/) 介紹是次香港藝人的參與。

甄子丹認為是次活動相當有意義,「聯合國把2013年世界環境日的主題選定為「反食物浪費」是十分正確的。我和太太汪詩詩每次聽見食物浪費的數字,都很震驚及心痛。特別是自己也曾經捱過,知道三餐溫飽亦非必然。我和家人不但熱愛健康飲食,我和詩詩更會向子女灌輸珍惜食物的正確態度,讓他們從小便知道粒粒皆辛苦的道理。」

吳彥祖和太太Lisa S. 亦希望今次活動可以鼓勵公眾去思考浪費食物的議題。「香港的廚餘問題、浪費食物的情況十分嚴重,佔都市固體廢物量達40%。我們自己喜歡煮食,並會先預算份量才烹調。若真有剩食也會留待明天,只要加點創意,又會成為新的菜式。將來BB出世,我們亦會教導他珍惜食物,希望到他成長的時候,地球仍有足夠的資源。」

此外,是次活動亦接受公眾參與,在短短兩星期內已接收了近五百張相片。同時,活動亦得到本地各個食物關注團體及一眾食物銀行的全力支持。本地伙伴包括有綠領行動“食晒有獎No Leftover”活動、長洲婦女會「食環.園」計劃、食德好食物回收計劃、樂餉社、惜食堂、聖雅各福群會眾膳坊等。

Asian Celebrities join force with UNEP to promote anti-food waste message on World Environment Day

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) set the theme of 2013 World Environment Day (WED) as “Think.Eat.Save. Reduce Your Foodprint” – to encourage the world to take action to reduce food waste and loss.

UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors Gisele Bündchen and Li Bingbing, The Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder all fully support this global campaign and have helped spreading the word through their fan page since last month.

In Hong Kong, 3,200 tonnes of food, which is the weight of 120 double decker buses, are sent to landfill every day. In light of this, local celebrities united together to make their appeal and call the public for action to save our food resources. “No leftover citizen” includes, Daniel Wu, Lisa S., Donnie Yen, Cissy Wang, Khalil Fong, Ella Koon, Jun Kung, Lawrence Cheng, Pakho Chau, Terence Yin, 24 herbs, Shiga Lin and more.

Donnie Yen and his wife Cissy Wang found this activity very meaningful. “The United Nations set this theme for this year’s World Environment Day is very proper. My wife and I were very disappointed and shocked whenever we heard about the amount of food wasted in Hong Kong. I had gone through some hard times when I was young and I knew that not everyone is lucky enough to have three meals a day. Besides, our whole family loves healthy diet, we teach our kids to cherish food and we make them understand it is not easy for farmers to grow food for us.”

Daniel Wu and his wife Lisa S. wish to encourage public to think about the problem of food waste through this activity. “Food waste has been a serious problem in Hong Kong, over 40% of the city solid waste is food waste right now and we must stop this. We enjoy cooking and we cook only the portion we can consume. We will utilize leftover food to make new dishes on the next day. Our first child will be born soon and we will teach her to cherish food.”

Furthermore, the “No Leftovers Pledge in Hong Kong” received over 500 photos in 2 weeks! It is supported by local food concern groups and food banks, including the Greeners Action’s No Leftover campaign, Cheung Chau’s Food Recycle Land project, Food Grace’s Food Recycling Scheme, Feeding Hong Kong, Food Angel and St. James’Settlement People’s Food Bank.
