Description

Say NO to tissues! Using handkerchief like old days are one of recycling action that might save our planet from bunch tissues. Made by upscale traditional fabrics from Bali that suitable for home,restaurants and events. 


Handkerchief in 25 x 25cm or 35 x 35 cm


Do you know if everyone from Hong Kong uses 1 less tissue a day, we can save 100,000 trees a year? We're inviting you to make a difference. Together. Now.

According to data released by the Environment Bureau, tissue paper makes up 7% (650 tonnes) of Hong Kong’s daily wastage.This closely follows kitchen refuse and food waste, which is the largest component. Unfortunately, due to hygienic reasons, used tissue cannot be recycled, thus generating more waste.

We were all brought up using handkerchiefs. In a sense, handkerchiefs have become an emblem of good up bringing and etiquette.Day by day, our busy lives and materialistic consumerist attitudes have made us ever more complacent and lazy. The handkerchief was slowly forgotten,overshadowed by the convenience of tissues.

Try counting how many pieces of tissue paper you use every day. Simple maths demonstrates how much stress we are putting onto our landfills and our planet. Hong Kong has a population of 7.3 million people;if everyone uses just one piece of tissue paper a day, that’s already 7.3 million pieces of tissue. And let’s be honest here, no one uses just one piece of tissue a day. Let’s not sabotage our environment for a moment of ease. 




Let's try to do start no tissue day just make a simple switch to handkerchief or towels etc. You don’t want to see Hong Kongers’ tissue usage equivalent to 45 double decker buses in weight do you? Tissue papers cannot be recycled and can only end up in landfills.

由今天起開始減少使用紙巾,轉用手巾等其他可代替品,齊齊減廢!但香港每日就有幾百噸不---收的紙巾廢物送往堆填區,重量相等於45架雙層巴士!
