作為「粉紅色炸彈」的接受人,傳統以來我們無法影嚮主人家把不環保的魚翅從菜單上拿走。即使我們到時在現場冒着大不諱拒絕進食,也於事無補。。。

同時,香港人大都心裡明白,參加囍宴其實是「用者自付」的。我們做的「人情」,其實正是整個「囍宴經濟圈」背後的經濟火車頭!

既然如此,何不釜底抽薪?因此小苐成立了一個 facebook 群組,倡議大家表明,如囍宴菜單上有魚翅這道菜,我們會把「人情」打七折,餘款捐給環保團體。

facebook 專頁

只要多人嚮應,慢慢地必會把舊思想改變過來,使人們明白:

宴會上沒有魚翅不會沒有面子;相反,有了魚翅才會失禮客人。

一人出一分力,為我們的下一代保留一個美好的地球!

請廣邀您的朋友參加。

Cut Gift Money for Shark Fin Banquet

As banquet goers, traditionally we could not affect the hosts on their menu choices — even if they decided to serve shark fin soup, which has dire environmental consequences for the sharks and ourselves.

At the same time, we all understand we the banquet goers are the true financiers of the banquets — we pay for our own meals in the name of “gift money” in the red envelops.

As such, if we concern about our environment, why don’t we just “follow the money” and make a change at the source ?! I suggest that we pledge to cut our gift money — by 30% — if we know in advance that shark fin soup will be served in the banquets. We will also pledge to donate the balance to organizations that are promoting the well being of our environment.

Facebook Community Page

I believe if there are more people making the same pledge, we can signal our distaste of shark fin soup to all the banquet organizers, and slowly we will turn the tide on the problem of excessive shark finning.

Let’s work together — for ourselves and for our future generations. Together Yes We Can !

Please invite your friends to participate.

(Note: the picture was from a news report from Apple Daily of Mar 6, 2010 . It serves as a testament on the barbaric side of the shark finning industry.)
