Hong Kong’s Newest Bulk Grocery & Zero Waste Store, Seed Opens in Sai Kung

28 June, 2018

Following in the footsteps of TST’s Edgar and the opening of Live Zero in Sai Ying Pun, check out Sai Kung’s latest zero-waste store, Seed.

The statistics are depressing – but it feels like we’re finally starting to see change not just globally, but importantly right on our doorstep in Hong Kong. David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II helped wake people up to the dangers of plastic around the world, with the UK set to ban all plastic straws, cotton swabs and single use plastics, but we’re also celebrating achievements closer to home, starting with a small ramen shop in Mongkok who has recently announced that it will only serve food in the restaurant (providing takeaway only to those who bring their own container), and of course, with more and more zero-waste lifestyle shops popping up across the city! Yep, even as ‘far’ as Sai Kung

Open for business earlier this month, Seed is a welcome addition to this quaint little town, giving us zero excuses and the means to live a more waste and plastic-free lifestyle in the 852. So, what does it offer? Much like Live Zero in Sai Ying Pun, Seed provides everything you need to keep the pantry well-stocked (think spices, cupboard-staples like pasta, dried nuts, fruit and legumes) as well as household cleaning products (laundry detergent, soaps etc.), beauty and personal items (we’re even talking vegan condoms) and lifestyle goodies such as eco-cups, beeswax wraps, straws and lunch boxes.

Whether you live in the ‘Kung or fancy a nosey after a day at the beach, bring your tupperware with you and bulk-buy everything you need for dinner on the way home. Seed do sell glass containers that you can purchase, or if you prefer, you can contribute $5 to use its donated containers, with 100% of proceeds going back to the community. We feel confident that changes are happening in Hong Kong, and so excited to see stores like Seed thrive as we bid farewell to single-use plastics, for good!
