Green Sense, a local NGO that focuses on environmental issues, conducted a study in August last year and found that over 780 million pieces of packaging waste were generated in Hong Kong over the past year. Buyandship is conscious of over-packaging issues and committed now more so than ever to solving them.

The packaging waste problem is not just localised to Hong Kong. Southeast Asia, has been pinpointed as a region with tremendous potential for growth in the eCommerce industry. A recent research article by ERIA indicates that out of the regions 350 million internet users, 120 million spent US $23 billion on eCommerce alone in 2018, double the amount from the previous year and this trend is only looking to continue to move in the same direction. With increased Ecommerce will come a greater demand for packaging materials.
