How to Live Zero Waste in Hong Kong

When it comes to waste, it feels almost impossible to avoid in Hong Kong. Whether we’re talking about takeaway containers or cutlery, we often throw it away immediately without giving it a second thought.

Luckily, there are plenty of initiatives in Hong Kong who have made it their life mission to reduce waste with a global perspective. From scrumptious leftovers to bringing your own coffee cups, this city is home to plenty of entrepreneurs who are saving the planet so you can too!

Hong Kongers drink plenty of coffee throughout the day, which results in a lot of paper cups and plastic lids being tossed away. Though we all need a midday boost, bringing your own cup to your favorite coffee shop is the perfect way to reduce wastage while still getting your caffeine fix.
