What social problems do we solve?

Let's take some time to rethink about our daily consumption. Almost everything we buy comes with packages, say beauty products, grains and snacks. Once we bought it, we just throw away the package. People in Hong Kong are not aware of the products they bought. Meanwhile, people in western countries are starting to live a "zero waste lifestyle". We want to bring this concept to Hong Kong and raise people's awareness on responsible consumption and production. 

In our campus, we observe that students tend to bring packaged snacks to school. The classroom rubbish bin are filled with plastic waste just in a day. Therefore, we want to promote zero waste recess starting from our school and promote zero waste lifestyle to the community.

Inspiration

Since our school do not have a tuck shop and lack of manpower to sell package-free snacks, we can put a vending machine instead in our campus. We find out that there are zero-waste vending machines called "Fresh Bowl" in the US to sell fresh food in reusable containers. We want to bring this concept to the school. However it's hard for us to clean the used containers and keep them hygienic with the lack of manpower. Therefore, we may want to use the idea of the zero waste bulk food store to ask students to bring their own containers to get the snacks from the vending machine.
