Green Rewards at Hong Kong Book Fair for Green CHOICE, Green Life Debut of Paper-crafted Booth to Achieve Sustainable Consumption

  • 2023.07.14

The Consumer Council has actively participated in the Hong Kong Book Fair for years to connect with the public and promote consumer interests. Under the theme “Green CHOICE, Green Life”, the Council launches “Green Rewards” at this year’s Book Fair, which will be held from 19 to 25 July 2023, to promote that green life is not only a choice but a lifestyle advocated by CHOICE. As an innovative first, the Council will debut the use of cardboard display panels, in place of traditional foam boards, and cardboard-crafted furniture, such as work desks, chairs with storage, etc. for its exhibition booth. This type of cardboard furniture is not only recyclable, but also reusable after the event. The Council hopes to showcase its commitment to sustainable consumption by reducing waste at the source and put this concept into practice together with consumers.


At the Council’s booth (Hall 1B-A20), readers can get a maximum of 6 “Green Rewards” gifts by subscribing to CHOICE Magazine and completing 6 designated tasks. 2 special photo areas are set for Book Fair visitors to capture happy moments.
