More than a passing trend or social media challenge, the zero waste movement has proven itself to be a legitimate lifestyle choice for those wanting to live life a little more sustainably. Follow the 5 ‘R’s’: Refuse what you do not need; reduce what you do need; reuse by using reusables; recycle; and rot (or compost) the rest. So far, so simple right? That is, until you come up against an economy that values the very opposite of zero waste – as is the case in Hong Kong. Luckily for you, I’ve put together a round up of my favorite Hong Kong zero waste stores that will have you rebelling against waste in no time.

Hong Kong Zero Waste Stores

Live Zero

At Live Zero, the concept is simple; customers are encouraged to bring their own pots, jars or bags to fill up with everything from pasta and lentils, oil, coffee, and even hand soap, that the store stocks in bulk. The idea is to cut back on the single use plastic bags and wrapping we get given so carelessly at the large supermarkets. Live Zero also has an excellent collection of reusable cups, cutlery, straws and food wrap for those times when packaging of some kind is needed. Overall, it’s a must-visit for those serious about living zero waste in Hong Kong.

Inspired by nature and the minimalist lifestyle, Plastic Free HK was born from one family’s desire to reduce their plastic waste output. Fast forward two years, and Plastic Free HK has firmly established itself as a veritable mainstay of the Hong Kong zero waste scene. They’re overall goal is to work towards a “non-disposable and plastic-free world” by offering thoughtfully-designed, ecologically-crafted plastic alternatives. I especially love their wide selection of sustainable cleaning products and food storage options.

As the city’s first ever zero waste grocery store, I think its fair to say that Edgar is ahead of the curve when it comes to green shops in Hong Kong. As you might expect, the store stocks all the pantry essentials including pasta and tea, helping you to buy only what you need and thus cutting food waste in Hong Kong. However, it’s the range of healthy organic snack food that’s the real star of the show here. Think chocolate coated pumpkin seeds and freeze dried okra. Remember to take your container to the cashier before you start loading up on goodies so that they can correctly weigh your purchases!
