Two weeks ago today Typhoon Vicente hit Hong Kong and left us with a terrible legacy that will be with us for many years. I never thought this plastic pellet disaster would be a uniting point for Hong Kong. What we have witnessed these last few days has been unprecedented. Thousands of volunteers have taken up the call for action like never before to come out en masse to our beaches. Through social media and then mainstream media, everyone in Hong Kong has heard of what has happened and so many have come out to help.
