All human activities have a direct impact on the environment. Therefore, we strive to make this impact positive and focus on preserving our environment. From reducing the use of plastic to effective recycling mechanisms, these small steps can drastically impact the environment in the long run.
Filtered water fountain: We have a filtered water fountain at the studio. Plus, we strongly encourage clients to bring their bottles (#BYOB).
Recycling Bins installed: We have installed recycling bins at the studio. We welcome clients to rinse the recyclables at the pantry to follow the recycling system in Hong Kong.
Bamboo Wipes and Tissue papers: Biodegradable wipes are the primary reason for sewer blockages and mass water and ocean pollution. Therefore, we have swapped all our disposable wipes to biodegradable wipes made of bamboo. To maintain an extremely hygienic environment in our studio, we use bamboo tissue papers to clean all the surfaces while limiting our waste.
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant that is naturally renewable. The plant can be grown without much maintenance and requires very little water to grow. Plus, you do not have to worry about any pesticides or herbicides for this tree-like grass.
Absorbs Carbon Dioxide
One of the most significant environmental benefits of bamboo is it’s ability to absorb carbon dioxide and product oxygen. Compared to an equivalent tree mass, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen, and research has shown that bamboo can absorb as much as 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.
The bamboo tree grows very quickly in as little as 1 to 3 years whereas other trees take up to 30 to 50 years to grow. This can help save the rainforest, water, and wildlife and can make a real impact on reversing climate change.
Less Carbon Footprint
Produced in Sichuan China and shipped to Hong Kong, these bamboo-made products are of less carbon footprint than those made of virgin wood fibers.
