Raphaël De Ry, Edgar:

Having witnessed first-hand the massive wastage created by the fashion industry as well as our current lifestyle, Raphaël De Ry, upon becoming a father, decided that there had to be a better way to live healthily and sustainably. An opportunity arose when he was the founder of a natural & organic food products distributor, and Edgar, the first modern-day zero-waste, plastic-free bulk grocery in Hong Kong was born.

Fanny Moritz, NO!W No Waste:

At the end of 2015, Fanny MORITZ started to read Bea Johnson’s bestseller Zero Waste Home. This was a turning point: she realized it was high time for her to embrace a more responsible lifestyle by considerably reducing her waste. However, she couldn’t find a platform offering all the products she needed to start her zero waste journey. Having 15 years experience in designing websites, she decided to challenge herself a second time and to create an online shop that would gather all the best alternatives to plastics and disposables. That’s how NO!W No Waste was born.

Entrepreneur, Tamsin Thornburrow, set up Live Zero as a solution to waste production and the environmental degradation caused by the overconsumption of plastic. Live Zero allows customers to stock up on the kitchen essentials completely waste free! The concept is for customers to use their own containers so that they only purchase what they NEED without the plastic wrapping. Her aim is to encourage Hong Kongers to lead a more environmentally friendly lifestyle by making simple changes, such as eliminating food packaging!
