A Hong Kong Story

When Mimi, the founder of ooh design studio, saw the devastation of plastic pollution on the beaches in Hong Kong upon returning from Canada after more than 20 years' absence, she wanted to do something about it. She joined local volunteer groups cleaning up the beaches but after a few cleanups, she realized a more effective solution was needed which would require the reduction and elimination of waste at its source. Mimi looked around and spotted one of the most ubiquitous plastic waste in Hong Kong which was the small, single-use, plastic bag for bakery. 

In the mornings, many people would buy the Hong Kong style buns for breakfast on their way to work or school and each bun would be packaged in a small plastic bag.  Mimi carried out some research and estimated that in a single year, over 90 million of these plastic bags would have been used and disposed of. She decided to tackle this problem because these bakery is so much part of everyday life in Hong Kong and part of its culture. 

Using her industrial design skills, Mimi started researching for the appropriate materials  to replace these single-use plastic bags. She finally came across the flour sacks which usually get tossed out by the bakers. 

The bakers throw out the flour sacks. The customers buy the bakery in plastic bags and then throw out the plastic bags.

A light bulb went up in Mimi's head! Upcycle the flour sacks into bread bags! Thus the Flour Bread Bag was born. The flour sacks are collected from various bakeries around the city. They are then washed at a laundromat and then sewn by Mimi and some local ladies, keeping them all handmade in Hong Kong. 

一個關於香港的故事

當ooh設計工作室的創始人Mimi從加拿大再次回到闊別20多年的香港時,她發現香港海灘上的塑膠污染對環境造成破壞,於是她決定要做些什麼。她加入了志願者組織清理海灘,但經過幾次清理後,她意識到環境問題需要更有效的解決方案,就是從源頭減廢。Mimi環顧四周,發現了香港最普遍的塑料垃圾之一:常用於麵包店的一次性塑膠袋。

原來,每天早上,很多人會在上班或上學途中買麵包早餐,而這都會用上一次性膠袋。Mimi進行了研究,估計每年香港人都會用上9000個一次性塑膠袋。她決定解決這個問題,因為這些麵包店是香港日常生活的一部分,也是其文化的一部分。

麵包師扔出麵粉袋。 顧客用塑膠袋購買麵包,然後扔掉塑膠袋。

Mimi靈機一觸,想出了將麵粉袋升級再造成麵包袋,麵粉麵包袋就此誕生了! 麵粉袋回收自各區的麵包店,經洗滌後,由Mimi和一些女士們縫製,整個產品都在香港手工製作。

Mimi利用她的設計才能,開始研發能代替這些一次性塑料袋的合適材料,然後她終於找到了通常被麵包師扔掉的麵粉袋。
