PARKnSHOP Hong Kong has taken the proactive step to implement plastic-reduction measures at three stores at local universities, including The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Fresh produce such as apples and oranges etc will be sold in loose form in the stores, reducing the selling of prepacked imported vegetables, which effectively reduces the usage of plastic packaging. Measures will be firstly implemented in the above stores and PARKnSHOP will then review the implementation of the trial scheme and consider extending the scheme to more stores.
