Press Release (S.0.W)
For Immediate Release
A Disruptive Experiential Retail & Community Space is coming to Causeway Bay!
From 21st March, in the heart of Causeway Bay, Edgar will launch a new community driven retail concept. With a 100 Days of Sustainability & Zero Waste (S.0.W) Challenge, Edgar aims to explore better practices to raise awareness, conserve our environment and showcase solutions. Through weekly expert discussions and workshops, we will share knowledge from and with the community to raise interest in sustainability for people from all walks of life.
“The Edgar Pop-Up shop is a new experiential retail and community-driven concept store. We will engage people about zero waste and sustainability,” says Raphaël De Ry, founder of Edgar, a bulk and plastic-free concept started in 2016.
Edgar started with a package-free retail concept providing a wide range of organic food (nuts, grains, seeds, pasta, chocolates…) and plastic-free eco products (eco-friendly straws, reusable products, beeswax cloth, containers, soap bars, etc). Our goods are responsibly sourced and fair-trade when possible. From customers and corporate request, educative training and consulting services were added to foster positive environmental practices.
“At our stores, customers can bring their containers and buy just the quantity they want (BYOC). Positive environmental action, by reducing waste and plastic need, is immediate. Every step counts.” says Raphaël. “It is one part of many little green steps that pave the road to positive environmental impact”.
