Team Bakbamboo hosted a panel discussion on “Sustainability in Hong Kong Oct 16th 2020” - part of the most anticipated in-person event of the year in Hong Kong
The panel event was just one part of 40 activities over the day and was hours in the making and months of preparation with the TEDxTinHauWomen committee and we could not have been prouder!
Bakbamboo was invited to sit down with FSI to discuss their thoughts on: Going Plastic-free: How to Build a Sustainable Hospitality Industry. Plastic is considered one of the greatest inventions in the 20 century: it is cheap to make, and it has many valuable uses. In the hospitality industry, single-use plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and lotion save travellers the need to bring their own while addressing hygiene concerns. However, with the convenience it brings, plastic is also causing negative impacts to our planet.
“The plastic tide is turning. We are finding that in Asia consumers are becoming increasingly aware and expecting businesses to take the lead on providing sustainable options to ensure we protect our precious blue economy" Our primary goal is to cater to large hotels and other accommodation venues across Asia Pacific and beyond.
Naveet McMahon, co-founder Bakbamboo shares her vision to solve one of the biggest problems in the world, our addiction to single-use plastics.
