In our latest edition of “8Shades of…” – where we get up close and personal with new and known faces in the sustainability field – we caught up with Wesley Ng, co-founder and CEO of phone case and electronic accessories producer, Casetify.
Casetify is the sponsor of our latest weekly giveaway for the #8Shades8Weeks Challenge! If you haven’t yet completed the easy challenge of BYOB (bringing your own bottle) out around town, what are you waiting for? Sign up here!
We played a round of eight quick-fire questions with Wesley. Read on to find out why he’s an 8Shader, his favourite eco-products and how he integrates sustainability into his daily life!
- In one sentence, tell us what you do.
I build brands and make kickass products!
2. Why are you an 8Shader?
About 3/4 years ago, I got converted by (8Shades founder) Emily Lam-Ho on a summer day while we were talking about what product Casetify should make. She planted the seeds of our sustainability line!
3. Your best eco habit?
I wear the same outfit everyday. Not only does this save me a lot of money on clothing (and the associated waste), but it has also reduced decision fatigue as I don’t have to think about what to wear everyday.
4. Guilty not-so-green habit?
I’m an avid food delivery lover, but I try to order from places that use sustainable packaging.
5. Favourite eco product?
Casetify’s stainless steel water bottle!
6. Favourite veggie dish/ restaurant in Hong Kong?
Chinese kale (chow gai lan).
7. How do you integrate sustainability into your business and daily life?
I follow green accounts on social media, like @8shadesofficial!
8. What shade of green are you?
