Zero-waste store Seed opens in Sai Kung

Seed, a bulk grocery and zero-waste store, has opened in Hong Kong’s picturesque seaside township, Sai Kung.

Focused on providing products that generate no packaging waste, the 200sqft store stocks pantry items and household products along with beauty and personal items to customers who bring their own containers or purchase a glass container at the store – or a donated container for which proceeds are returned to the community.


More unusual items include vegan condoms and lifestyle products such as eco-cups, beeswax wraps, stainless steel straws and lunch boxes.


The store’s Facebook profile reads “Apart from just providing you and your family with the daily necessities, we aim to choose products that are good for our bodies and Mr Earth… We strike to help protect the environment, and hope our little seeds could help plant this idea in others’ mind.”

Seed is located at 29 Yee Kuk Street. Its opening follows similar unrelated concepts Edgar in Tsim Sha Tsui and Live Zero at Sai Ying Pun.
