With MBA degree in luxury brand management and received numerous green awards since Vegware was introduced in Hong Kong, Ceicy Wong, Managing Director of Vegware Hong Kong, is certain that sustainability is the new luxurious fashion and plant-based, plastic-free disposable brings solution to reduce waste in the food sector.

My Sustainability Goals for 2021:

Vegware can be simply recycled together with food waste after use; which helps significant carbon footprint divert in the landfill. Ie, the recycled sugarcane used to make Vegware’s takeaway boxes has 99 percent less embodied carbon dioxide than polystyrene. Our goal is to grow composting regions including close the loop through promoting compostable disposables.
