Tzu Chi Environmental Action Center locates near a hillside in Tai Wai, surrounded by the natural environment and rebuilds with the green building concept. In 1950s, the building had been constructed under the donation from the Aw Boon Haw Family for educational purposes. Chi Hong Ching Yuen has been responsible to operate free education and nursery services, and subsequently a kindergarten which then closed in 2000. In 2003, Master Shui Yung from Chi Hong Ching Yuen transferred the premises to Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu-Chi Foundation Hong Kong Limited, as for contact site and environmental education station in Tai Wai. Promoting the local environmental protection concept can let the citizens recognize the importance about recycling and do it by action in daily. So Tzu Chi Environmental Action Center has been renovated by Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu-Chi Foundation Hong Kong Limited in 2021, with the funds donated by Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust for exhibition and relative expenses.
