About us

HeroesToo Foundation

Protecting our planet through people power.
HeroesToo Foundation is a registered Hong Kong charity aiming to restore and protect the environment. We are dedicated to connecting individuals and chanelling their collective energy to create a lasting response to environmental threats. We collaborate with schools to reach out to students with our holistic ‘whole school’ sustainable lifestyle education programme.

HeroesToo was founded by Raymond Yap, a retired businessman, grandfather of three and cancer survivor. After successfully recovering from surgery, with a new outlook on life, he felt a calling to protect the planet and all whom inhabit it and realised if every individual did the same thing it would make a difference.

HeroesToo EcoPledge Program

Besides Eco-pledge2 a direct approach to help restore and preserve the environment, we also want to educate and encourage each and every individual to reduce their resource consumption. Through our platform, the EcoPledge Program, we enable schools, companies and individuals to make a commitment, a pledge, to lower their resource consumption thereby reducing their carbon footprint. The EcoPledge Program also enables a connection with others by allowing these individual pledges to be viewed and shared on social media.The type of  resource each person is saving, how they are going to do it and by how much they aim to reduce it by can be seen. The aim is to inspire and motivate participants, spread the message in their social network and make a positive change within the community and even globally, so more people will become involved in leading a sustainable lifestyle.

HeroesToo Educational Programmes

SDC1HeroesToo Foundation, in collaboration with our partner, social enterprise SolutionsTooLtd., recently launched a series of Sustainable Design Competitions (SDC). The aim of the competitions was to encourage talented artists to incorporate sustainability into their designs as well as spreading this message to the community. Our last competition involved students artistically sparring against one another to create a design that would featured in and on bus shelters around the Hong Kong. The competition inspired numerous people from a wide array of schools, companies and institutes to particiapate. Faculty members teaching at the Hong Kong Design Institute made our challenge a compulsory assignment for its students. Kowloon Motor Bus Commission collaborated and used the winning designs in their bus shelters. This eventually led to local media outlets TVB Pearl, Roadshow, and SCMP covering the event on-air.
