A PARKnSHOP store manager’s hard work to sanitise the shopping trolleys and baskets was captured on social media. His dedication to serve receives overwhelming support online.
PARKnSHOP gives out 8,800 goodie bags to thank its employees for their efforts to keep stores open and safe while maintaining necessity supply to the fellow citizens in Hong Kong.
Three outstanding Hong Kong schools have been recognised for their great work as part of the PARKnSHOP Green School Programme, which since 2013 has provided funding for green school projects promoting sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency and waste reduction.
At the City Food Drive 2019 Volunteer Day, PARKnSHOP Hong Kong volunteer team partnered with Knorr volunteers to visit the Food Angel Shamshuipo Community Centre again. Volunteers prepared hot meals and distributed goodie bags to nearly 180 elderly, as well as participated in the healthy chair dance with them, together enjoying a wonderful morning!
PARKnSHOP and Knorr is also launching the 2nd round of fundraising activity – by donating 1% of sales proceeds to Food Angel for every Knorr product purchased in PARKnSHOP stores during 12 Aug to 8 Sep.
PARKnSHOP Hong Kong held its annual City Food Drive Volunteer Day which has led to over 1,800 tonnes of food being donated to Food Angel over 7 years. This year, in partnership with Knorr, volunteers promoted the importance of food rescue, preparing meal boxes and presenting goodie bags to the elderly.
According to the Waste Statistics for 2017 in “Monitoring of Solid Waste in Hong Kong” published by the Environmental Protection Department*, the average daily quantity of municipal solid waste disposed by Hong Kong people was 10,733 tpd, in which 20% of them (nearly 2,124 tpd) were plastics. A.S. Watson Group (ASW) puts environmental protection in high priority on its social responsibility agenda. It has been driving energy-efficiency, reduction of waste and greenhouse gas emissions to minimise negative impacts on the environment. Since 2014, ASW has taken the proactive step to ban the use of microplastic in its rinse-off own brand cosmetics/personal care scrub products development. The company is also committed to further extend the ban and targets to end the sales of all rinse-off cosmetics products / personal care products containing microplastics by the end of 2019. Its retail brands also proactively implement plastic-reduction measures, striving to strike a balance between product excellence and environmental protection, creating a greener environment.
PARKnSHOP Hong Kong and Food Angel have marked the 6th anniversary of their collaboration to run the annual City Food Drive, delivering nutritious meals to people in need and promoting Smart Food recipes to minimise waste.
The annual PARKnSHOP Hong Kong partnership with Food Angel has moved up a gear, with customers now able to donate food items online as well as in stores, which Food Angel then uses to create nutritious cooked meals for people in need. This year, in-store cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs have helped raise public awareness of this charity programme and the importance of being careful not to waste food.
