    Single use plastic ban / MTR 45th anniversary exhibition

    On Monday's Backchat, we're talking about the ban on single use plastic.

    Starting Monday — which is Earth Day — catering premises will no longer be able to provide disposable expanded polystyrene tableware, which includes single-use plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery, and plates. Plastic cups and food containers will initially be banned for dine-in customers, before a blanket prohibition takes place early next year.
    On top of that, hotel guests can bid farewell to free plastic water bottles, plastic toothbrushes, and small-sized shampoo bottles in their rooms. Lodging establishments will now have to use alternative materials such as paper bottles and wooden toiletries.
    The government hopes this will help reduce waste, and minimise microplastic pollution of landfills and oceans, in line with Hong Kong's ambitions of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.
    After 9:45, we talk about a public exhibition celebrating the MTR Corporation’s 45th anniversary, with vintage trains on display in Hung Hom.

    The future of red minibuses / Vanity car plate auction

    主持人:Jim Gould and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about calls to support Hong Kong's struggling red minibus operators.

    Transport industry figures are urging the government to create more green minibus routes and give them to red bus drivers, amid an increase in the number of operators unable to repay their vehicle loans.
    A spokesman for the Hong Kong Taxi and Public Light Bus Association has said that of about 1,000 red minibuses in the city, roughly half are currently not in service, and about
    100, used as collateral, have been seized in the past three years.
    Unlike green minibuses, red ones are usually privately owned and are subject to fewer regulations, with operators able to choose their routes and fix their own fares.
    After 9:45, we're looking into a rather unusual but lucrative form of investment: vanity car plates.
