They've caused quite some damage around Hong Kongs nature. So, unfortunately I won't take up this chance to buy shares when so low...

    I try to draw a parallel with the terrorists in the states who murder dozens of children and then kill themselves, but... Hmm...somehow it doesn't add up.

    Now we've got flower police!
    Wouldn't that have more to do with people littering than the actual company itself? It's not like they can control how people use their products and police everyone to ensure they don't litter.

    Maye it has to do with the odd Government strategy of reducing litter/trash: by reducing the number of trash cans available around HK. Surely not having accessible trash cans would lead to an increase in litter?

    Think the point is to take litter home and sort.

    Tokyo has very few bins iirc and not much littering. I know the reason for taking the bins away had nothing to do with litter, but it seems to work.
