Go Natural: Eco-friendly Deodorants That Actually Work

In hot and humid Hong Kong, an effective deodorant is a must, but do you know what you’re really slathering or spraying onto your underarms?

Traditional antiperspirants and two-in-one deodorant-antiperspirants use aluminum for its ability to effectively stop sweat and reduce perspiration. However, this ingredient has also raised health concerns for being potentially linked to issues like breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, and memory loss. 

So, it’s no surprise that more and more folks are now opting for natural and chemical-free deodorants that are often also packaged in a more eco-friendly manner. Stay fresh and odour-free with our pick of some of the best natural deodorants in Hong Kong:

The Herb Farm Ylang Ylang & Orange Deodorant Cream

Hailing from New Zealand, this ingenious cream-style deodorant is one of the brand’s highest rated deodorising products. Packaged in a glass jar, the natural deodorant cream absorbs moisture whil preventing odor-causing bacteria through the use of baking soda and tapioca. Shea nut butter, calendula oils and coconut soothe and moisturise the underarm area. It’s free of aluminum and other chemical ingredients. 

Available at Slowood and Pimary

Aesop Déodorant

Aesop’s unisex deodorant spray is a luxurious alternative to the chemical-laden deodorising sprays found at most drugstores. While aerosol sprays contain compressed gasses that are notorious for contributing to global warming, this butane and aerosol-free spray is a great way to slowly minimise your carbon footprint – the bottle is even made from 99.7% recycled plastic. Formulated with Zinc Rincinoleate and a selection of essential oils, it helps mask and reduce underarm odour with a slightly woody and herbaceous scent.

Coconut Matter Probiotic Deodorant Sticks

Coconut Matters hand crafts their vegan-friendly, toxin-free products right here in Hong Kong. The brand specialises in utilising 100% pure virgin coconut oil in each of their product lines and their deodorants, which are packaged in biodegradable cardboard tubes, are made with subtle, all-natural ingredients such as essential oils, shea butter and fruit extracts so you can glide this baby onto your skin without any hesitation. Choose from five scents to fit your mood.

California organic skincare brand erbaviva is now available in Hong Kong which means you can get your hands on their award-winning organic deodorant spray – an apparent favourite of Kourtney Kardashian (she loves the Jasmine and Grapefruit scent). The spray combats odours with organic essential oils and evaporates quickly with an organic grain alcohol to offer safe and effective bacterial and odour protection. It’s USDA Certified organic, and also paraben and sulfate-free. Spray it on fabric, carpets and yoga mat for a quick refresh.

ZeroYet100 Deodorant Aluminum Pot and Deodorant Push Up Stick

Hong Kong’s ZeroYet100 has become a homegrown hit with its cruelty-free, chemical-free products, fashionably housed in beautiful mostly plastic-free packaging. Their natural deodorants are plant powered and created with gender-neutral scents that will keep anyone fresh while on the go. Choose from their aluminum pot, which is a scoopable version that can be applied as a light paste to dry skin with clean fingers or their small wooden applicator, or the push up stick, for easy swiping after the gym or on a hike.

Biork Potassium Crystal Deodorant Stick

Add a new crystal to your collection with a crystal deodorant stick. Crystal deodorant has been used in Southeast Asia for centuries, through the antimicrobial properties found in potassium alum, a natural mineral salt that creates a protective layer preventing the growth of odour-causing bacteria. Biork’s crystal stick is dermatologically tested and purports to provide 24-hour protection against sweat odour, just rinse it under water and apply it to your underarm like a roll-on deodorant. Perhaps the coolest thing about it is the cork packaging – the no-waste, compostable material is buoyant, flame-retardant and impermeable to keep your sweat stopper free from the elements.

things you should never recycle

8 Things You Should Never Recycle

Reduce, reuse, recycle. This is a phrase that most of us have grown up with, but did you know that not everything should actually be recycled? Recycling is an art in itself, with many rules on what can and can’t be recycled. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of eight things that you should never recycle:


1.

Plastic Bags 

plastic bag

Plastic shopping bags and plastic bags aren’t usually accepted for recycling because the lightweight material can tangle or otherwise damage the machinery used in recycling centers. Plastic bags are typically made from Plastic #4, otherwise known as “Low Density Polyethylene,” which is very reusable but normally not recyclable.

The solution: Reuse your plastic bags and be sure to bring your own reusable grocery bags instead.


2.

Styrofoam 

Commonly used in takeaway boxes and cups, styrofoam is made from Plastic #6: Polystyrene, which is extremely difficult to recycle in Hong Kong and contains chemicals that are harmful to human health. Avoid using styrofoam at all costs!

The solution: Bring your own takeaway containers, or try to reduce ordering from restaurants that still use styrofoam containers.


3.

Cling Wrap

Cling wrap is often made from Plastic #3: PVC, which cannot be recycled easily and could contain carcinogens that leach into the environment. It also cannot be recycled in Hong Kong.

The solution: Swap cling wrap with reusable beeswax wraps, containers or silicon bowl covers.


4.

Disposable diapers

Unfortunately, disposable diapers contain too many different materials (paper, plastic, absorbent material) to be recycled – not to mention, they are completely contaminated with human waste. This makes them garbage that goes straight into landfill.

The solution: Look for more sustainable diaper options such as those made from eco-friendly materials like bamboo.


5.

Medical Waste

This might seem obvious, but needles, disposable face masks, plastic syringes and prescription containers are classified as biohazards and therefore cannot be recycled.  

The solution: When it comes to face masks, why not go for a reusable fabric option instead?

6.

Paper Towels

Try to avoid paper towels wherever possible – unused paper towels cannot be recycled because the fibres are too short to be made into new paper. On the other hand, used paper towels are often soiled with food or grease, contaminating the recycling process, so these, too cannot be recycled.

The solution: You’re better off using reusable cloths!

7.

Takeaway Coffee Cups

takeaway coffee cup

Takeaway coffee cups cannot be recycled because they’re coated in plastic, which is how they’re able to hold liquid without leaking all over the place. Unfortunately, this means that these cups will end up in landfills!

The solution: Bring your own reusable coffee cup to the shop – as a bonus, it may even stay hotter for longer.


8.

Chips Bags

chip packet never recycle

Chips bags can’t go in single-stream recycling bins because they are often made from aluminium-laminated polypropylene, which cannot be separated by recycling plants.

The solution: Look for compostable packaging or get your savoury snacks from zero-waste stores where you can bring your own containers.

refashioned

Giveaway: Win Tickets To the Premiere of “reFashioned” in Hong Kong

reFashioned is a new documentary that sheds light on the work that three individuals in Hong Kong are doing to tackle the ever-mounting fashion waste crisis in the city. Showing different aspects of the fashion industry, the film aims to make us rethink our relationship with fashion.

The three protagonists in the film are Edwin Keh, scientist at the Hong Kong Research Institute for Textile and Apparel, who is working to create technologies to recycle blended fabrics, Sarah Garner, former fashion buyer and founder of children’s clothing reseller Retykle, and Eric Swinton, founder of social enterprise V Cycle, which is fighting plastic pollution while working with elderly waste pickers. reFashioned also features commentary on the state of the fashion waste crisis in Hong Kong. 

We chatted with director Joanna Bowers and producer Kate Davies to learn more about the film, what their personal relationship with fashion is and what Hong Kong needs to do to tackle the mounting fashion waste crisis. 

Follow us on Instagram(@8shadesofficial) for your chance to win tickets to the premiere of reFashioned in Hong Kong on 18 September 2021!

  1. Can you explain what reFashioned is about? 

The film essentially follows the journey of three renegades in the fashion industry who are working to make Hong Kong more sustainable. Together, these people represent small, medium and large enterprises which we feel is a really nice way to represent all the different sectors of society.

  1. What is one thing that you wish more people knew about the fashion industry?

How much waste it produces! When a garment reaches the end of its life, we don’t have a mental image of where it goes. One day, our crew went to the landfill in Tuen Mun, which was a horrifying day – one that I think will stay with us forever – because we were absolutely stunned by the scale of this place. We had to send out a drone 2.5 kilometres out to sea so that we could get a shot wide enough to show the whole landfill!

Our generation grew up coveting fast fashion without thinking where the clothes were going or even how they originally came to us. There just wasn’t that awareness because social media wasn’t a thing back then and we didn’t have access to such education. So now we’re aware that we’re in this terrible state and now that we’re here, we can change the tide again. 

  1. What do you want viewers to come away with after watching reFashioned?

That their choices matter – regardless of your age – and they have more power than they think they do.

  1. What is your personal relationship with fashion?

Joanna: Honestly, my relationship with fashion was good before I came to Hong Kong! I lived in Los Angeles before coming to the city and a lot of the shopping I did there was at vintage stores. But when I arrived in Hong Kong, I struggled to find options without having to go online. I used to buy clothes when I travelled but in Hong Kong, I really enjoy HULA and On The List. One of my friends also organised frock swaps, which is really fun! 

Kate: I grew up in Hong Kong so I was very used to the short-term clothing model. It wasn’t until I got to the UK that I discovered vintage clothing. I think that it’s all about life cycles and that we need to work to make sure that whatever piece of clothing we have goes to somebody else who will give it to somebody else, etc, before it ends up in a landfill. I also swap clothing with my friends, so I second the frock swap!

  1. To combat fashion waste, what do you think needs to be done on the consumer and government level?

Joanna: It’s really exciting that the government has just passed the municipal solid waste bill. It’s a great first step because when you make people pay to throw things away, they’re going to throw a lot less away! 

Kate: On a consumer level, we need to rethink our choices. When you go into a shop and you want to buy something, really think about whether you need it. 

Joanna: If you’re still thinking about it in a week, then buy it! Think about the cost-per-wear as well and how often you’ll wear it. If it’s something expensive and something more event-based, consider renting or borrowing from a friend. 


Giveaway

We’ve got four tickets to give away for the Hong Kong premiere of reFashioned on 18 September 2021 – simply follow us on IG (@8shadesofficial) for details on how to enter! Winners will be contacted via Instagram DM on Monday, 13 September 2021.

Atelier Cologne Launches Recycling Scheme in Hong Kong

We’ve been fans of Atelier Cologne’s divine fragrances for a while now – and with the news that they’ve just launched their own recycling scheme in Hong Kong, we love them even more!

Source:Atelier Cologne

The French fragrance house’s “ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED Recycling Programme” is now up and running at their three standalone Hong Kong boutiques in IFC mall, K11 Musea and Harbour City. With the brand already well-known for crafting scents that showcase natural and sustainably sourced ingredients, the new recycling scheme marks the latest step in their commitment to looking after the environment.

Source:Atelier Cologne

To recycle your Atelier Cologne bottles, simply return any of the brand’s empty product containers – ensuring they have been rinsed, dried and had their labels removed – to the special boxes located in the designated stores. You’ll receive one stamp for each container you return, with complimentary gifts redeemable for every two, four or six stamps you collect – giving you that extra incentive to keep recycling.

Source:Atelier Cologne

All the collected containers will be donated to homegrown social enterprise V Cycle, who work with businesses throughout the city to recycle waste and support the circular economy. Their recycling schemes also help to fund community programmes that enhance the lives of disadvantaged elderly and young people in Hong Kong, so it really is a great cause to support.

If you need further motivation to go green, Atelier Cologne will also be giving away a free 30ml refillable travel perfume bottle for every 100ml perfume purchased – encouraging customers to adopt reusable containers on-the-go rather than relying on disposable minis.

We’ll see you down at the recycling boxes soon!

Atelier Cologne locations in Hong Kong:

hong kong waste charging scheme

Hongkongers Will Soon Have to Pay For Their Trash

Hong Kong lawmakers have passed a long-delayed legislation to charge residents for their household rubbish to reduce the amount of waste produced in the city.

While we don’t know exactly when the scheme will launch, Environment Minister Wong Kam-sing has said that it will be around 18 months before residents have to start paying for government-made bags to get rid of their trash. 

What is the Waste Charging Scheme?

Under the scheme, residents that use government rubbish collection services must buy rubbish bags produced and sold by the government. These bags will be available in 11 sizes and prices. A 15-litre bag – about the same size as what supermarkets offer for groceries – will cost HK$1.70. It has been estimated that the charging scheme will cost an average three-person household between HK$33 and HK$51 a month.

The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) will give out the designated rubbish bags for free when the programme begins, but some environmental groups have said that the 18-month period is too long and that residents may expect to get the bags for free beyond it, defeating the point of the scheme in the first place.

The EPD has also promised to open 10 recycling sites across the city and expand an existing scheme for collecting plastic to cover nine districts, up from three currently.

Once the 18-month period is over, lawmakers will carry out a review before the scheme will be formally put into law. 

While this waste charge is great news, there’s so much more that needs to be done to stop the flow of waste in Hong Kong. The city needs to target supermarket packaging and single-use plastic tableware, which are large sources of plastic waste in Hong Kong. The city also needs a set of policies on the proper recycling of sorted waste and food waste, without which everything will end up in landfills.

Hong Kong is an extremely wasteful city. In 2019, each Hongkonger sent an average of 1.47kg of rubbish to the landfill per day. Only 29% of this was recycled; the rest was sent to landfills. These figures are expected to rise for 2020 because of the increased use of disposables during the height of COVID-19.

While meal replacement shakes should not completely replace balanced diets, Allklear’s meal replacement shakes’ nutritional value are comparable to that of ordinary meals. Enriched with dietary fibre, the shakes will make you feel full, and are especially suitable for people who want to maintain their weight, who have busy schedules and are prone to forgetting to eat meals and for vegetarians.

Allklear predicts that if 30% of consumers switched to Detox Future Salad, 515,000 tons of greenhouse gases would be avoided, as well as over 11,000 tons of plastic containers and more than 1,200 tons of unconsumed vegetable waste in Hong Kong each year.
