5 Effortless Zero Waste Swaps

It’s no news that we are destroying the planet with the excessive use of plastic in our modern lives. It is especially evident in Hong Kong, where it is said more than 2000 tonnes of polystyrene, industrial and commercial plastic is thrown out daily (gosh!)

If you google “zero waste swaps” you will find tons of ideas on how you can reduce your daily waste. I decided to start with the easiest ones and work my way up from there… Hopefully these ideas inspire you to be conscious about this environmental issue. We’re in this together!
