“No Straw” Slogan Design Competition for University Students

Plastic debris  is creating serious problems to marine wildlife, we have to address the overuse issue now!  Single-use plastic straws are commonly seen on the beaches in Hong Kong.  To reduce plastic waste, we could start with refusing to use plastic straws.  The “No-Straw Slogan Design Competition for University Students” aims to arouse public awareness on reducing the use of disposable plastic cutleries, with plastic straws as the first step to start with.  Properly managing solid waste and recycling are good habits, but it’s even better to reduce waste at the source! 

Squeeze your creative juice, encourage green actions to save our planet with your slogan.  Join the slogan design competition before December 13.  Prizes include Ocean Park Hong Kong daytime adult admission ticket.

Prize Winners and Slogans:

Grand Prize

Winner:劉健平

Slogan:冇型冇款用飲管,識走飲管係筍盤。

Meaning and Concept:根據維基百科,「筍盤」一詞代表一些樣貌或事業有優勢的男士。作為BU宋呵8樓男神,我認為用飲管是一件很要不得的行為,因為很不環保,這會使我沒有型,名聲嚴重受損。為了保持我「筍盤」又環保的形象,我必定會走飲管!

 

First Runner-up

Winner:彭聖元 Pang Shing Yuen

Slogan:凍飲「走管」好Easy,易過停車要熄匙。

Meaning and Concept:飲凍飲時,大部分人都習慣使用塑膠即棄飲管,做成大量浪費。然而,塑膠飲管為地球十大海洋垃圾之一,對海洋生態造成嚴重破壞,要分解一支塑膠飲管更要用上400-500年之久。其實想改善此情況,做法非常簡單,只要每人都自備可重覆使用的環保飲管就可以大幅減少即棄飲管的用量。每人從生活習慣中作出少改變,亦可以好似「停車熄匙」一樣深入民心。

 

Second Runner-up

Winner:何佩恩

Slogan:飲野唔使用飲管嘅,用咀咪得囉;走飲管夠曬威,塑膠飲管並唔好使。

Meaning and Concept:用為人熟悉的廣告台詞,令潮語更琅琅上口,令人印象更深刻。

 

Merit Award

Winner:陳曉欣

Slogan:sor sor sor我用straw, 下次再用冇鼻哥。唔用straw係小兒科,除非你係佛地魔。

Meaning and Concept:受啟發於一張救護員幫海龜從鼻孔拔出吸管的照片,希望警誡市民使用飲管對海洋生物的身體的危害。使用佛地魔做例子是因為佛地魔是《哈利皮特》中的反派角色,就如塑膠產品般邪惡。另外,佛地魔沒有鼻哥,亦跟straw音相似。此外,以小兒科(兒童)作激將法,激起人們減少使用飲管,並以sor(sorry簡稱)為使用飲管道歉,鼓勵人承諾減少使用飲管。

 

Winner:馬家宇 MA Ka Yu

Slogan:啜膠?絕交!諗清楚先好啜膠。

Meaning and Concept:啜膠為使用塑膠飲管的意思,並取絕交的諧音。使用問號是一個疑問句,問朋友是否真的用塑膠飲管。其後的絕交!是加強語氣。為保護海洋環境,要與塑膠飲管絕交。每一次飲凍飲要飲管要思前想後。

 

Winner:Tseung Yik Man

Slogan:塑走飲管救海龜,膠出即棄淨海洋。

Meaning and Concept:「塑」與「掃」同音,意指掃走塑膠飲管的壞習慣。而近期不少報導塑膠飲管的受害者都是海龜,所以針對拯救海龜作目標。「膠」同「交」同音,指交出即棄餐具,轉為可循環再用的餐具,便可達至減少塑膠廢物排出大海,從而潔淨海洋,保育珍貴的海洋生物。第一句的「塑」與第二句的「膠」即可拼為「塑膠」。
