Siaoliouciou circulates beach money

小琉球首創「海灘貨幣」 垃圾也能變現金

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

This summer, “beach money” will be released on Siaoliouciou (Little Liuqiu) for the first time.

全國首創的「海灘貨幣」,暑假將在小琉球發行流通!

This month, the Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area Administration (DBNSA) and Hiin Studio will jointly organize five beach cleanup relays for protecting turtles. In the events, every two kilograms of garbage the participants clean away can be exchanged for the beach money to be used at local businesses for actual discounts. A total of 74 local businesses have already said they will participate in the project.

大鵬灣國家風景區管理處與海湧工作室本月將合辦五場「愛龜淨灘接力賽」,每兩公斤垃圾就能兌換海灘貨幣在小琉球消費,現已有七十四個商家響應,提供折價方案。

Lin Peiyu of Hiin Studio is one of the event’s initiators. Lin says it is hoped the “beach money,” which was invented by a Japanese surfer and environmental activist, will raise awareness of the aggravating problem of floating marine debris. The beach money coins are made of waste glass with its sharp edges dulled, and adorned with beautiful turtle patterns.

海湧工作室林佩瑜是本活動發起人之一,她表示「Beach Money」海灘貨幣最早是由日本環保衝浪客所發起,希望藉此讓遊客注意到海漂垃圾日益嚴重的問題。海灘貨幣是由磨鈍的海漂玻璃製成,繪有精美的海龜圖騰。

There will be five separate beach cleanups, to be held on July 22, 23, 26, 29 and 30. Those who wish to participate can meet at the Little Liuqiu Visitor Center at 1pm on the day of the event, and there will be a fascinating presentation on green sea turtles before departing for the cleanup itself.

「愛龜淨灘接力賽」活動的五個梯次分別為七月二十二、二十三、二十六、二十九、三十日;欲參加本活動之民眾可在當日下午一點至琉球遊客中心集合,出發前會有一場帶大家認識綠蠵龜的精采演說。

To reduce water and garbage waste, DBNSA urges that holiday visitors to Siaoliouciou reduce the use of sunscreen, and B&Bs refrain from changing sheets for visitors staying for multiple days.

鵬管處呼籲小琉球遊客減少使用防曬乳,連續住宿則請民宿不更換寢具,渡假同時減少垃圾與廢水。
