At Wing Lee, we believe the whole sourcing chain needs to be re-evaluated from a product’s inception to its final resting place. It isn’t really enough for the public to have a spike of interest when ‘Blue Planet II’ is aired.
Businesses have to start somewhere and in our own small way we are improving awareness by promoting the reusable cups made from sustainable bamboo and the water bottles made from sugar cane.
The whole world economic and social system is so complex that it is easy to become downhearted and feel that these small changes have no impact. In our view, it is these small changes that can slowly improve the whole approach. In fact, if the public becomes more conscious of sustainability throughout a products life, then change will occur.
It is now our declared policy to phase out all temporary products or all products which are not biodegradable or produced from a sustainable source. As you might imagine, it is not easy for us to do this, but for the future of the planet and the environment, it has to be achieved.
