每隻 FLAPPY 的誕生 象徵一個膠樽已被「乾淨回收」，印證著一次「循環升值」的 體驗 ！
We are committed to a community-wide implementation of the FLAPPY School Tour by providing schools with inter-school visits and creative environmental protection workshops. We also want to encourage enterprise sponsored international ecology awareness activities utilizing FLAPPY as a symbol to promote awareness of environmental protection so that people of different ages and nationalities can actively participate in safeguarding our ecosystem.

FLAPPY JUNIOR 活力十足，由滑板、跳舞到瑜珈樣樣皆能。大家細心看看，能否察覺圖中的 FLAPPY JUNIOR 其實只做出一個固定動作，改變的只是背景而已。
MEET the TEAM
In recent years, due to serious environmental pollution problems and air-borne diseases, birds are labeled as a high-risk disease spreading agent. The public has gone to extra measures to avoid coming into contact with birds, and Stella is deeply distressed by this. In 2014, she met environmental artist Mr. Orson Li, who is the creator of Canbot (canbot.com). She was greatly inspired by Canbot and the spirit of "Environmental Appreciation Art". She decided to leave her father's crystal lighting business and with absolute resolve set up Flappyland as an artistic platform for the promotion of environmental protection and life harmony.
Stella also invited Orson to design a bird-themed environmental work of art named FLAPPY. Stella further developed a series of Eco Art workshops in which ordinary citizens can participate and get involved. There is also a school tour that teaches children to “cleanly recycle” by building FLAPPY. This activity is designed to bring fun, meaning, and awareness to the subject matter of environmental protection. The environmental art platform concept of Flappyland is widely recognized and supported by all walks of life in Hong Kong. It is Stella’s hope and dream that in the near future they can work with more public figures, celebrities, and corporations to promote environmental art and help it evolves into a compelling movement.
Orson Li graduated from the prestigious UCLA in the United States, and worked in an international accounting firm as an international auditor before founding an advertising and design company. In 2007, he started to devote his energy to creative environmental arts. Orson researched and developed a unique aluminum folding technology which turns discarded aluminum cans into robots and animal statuettes, which attracted the attention of collectors in the United States, Japan and Korea leading to his becoming known as the “Genius of Aluminum Origami”. Orson’s canbots are on display in the Cameron Art Museum in the United States and are sought after by celebrities such as Rosie O'Donnell. He set up CANBOT.COM to promote "Upcycle" environmental art and created the "I CAN MAKE IT" campaign to foster a positive outlook on life.
The citizenry in Hong Kong has achieved a certain level of awareness of “rubbish classification” and “clean recycling”. However, there are still many unresolved issues concerning environmental protection. Orson and the design team have developed some innovative activities evolved around Flappy to educate people, especially children, to recycle correctly, thus eventually achieving the common goal of "WE CAN MAKE IT".
