I went to Tsim Sha Tsui (Hong Kong) for an hour relaxing facial treatment yesterday. I tried to find a restaurant for my lunch before my treatment…I decided to entry a restaurant because I saw the Michelin Guide Recommended Street Food. After I ordered my meal and exciting of the food. I was shocking when the food delivered in front of me (See photo above)… “I am not eating takeaway, why the restaurant is using the paper cup and styrofoam to serve the meal to me?”
Business is important, you can save the headcount for wash those tableware. Yes, the salary is high in Hong Kong. Yes, disposable products cause less expense. However, the earth is even more important – “We only have one Earth“. Can the business consider to use the zero-waste disposable products to serve their food? Like the UBPack products, it is a biodegradable starch-based metariel and it can be decomposition by the water in 7 days, it may more expensive than the usual disposable products. The earth has a serious problem nowadays, I hope Michelin ranking can be considering increase the sustainability elements to educate the public.
