Do you love coffee and fashion? Then you’re in luck, because luxury fashion retailer Net-a-Porter has partnered with Between coffee in Hong Kong to launch a sustainable food set. Through the partnership titled ‘Net Goes Green’, Net-a-Porter hopes to “inspire consumers and support a positive culture around broader elements of a more-sustainably-minded lifestyle.”
The limited-edition food set is made using locally-grown vegan ingredients and features three items: a plant-based Katsu Sando that uses locally grown sweet potato and kale, complemented with togarashi mayo and served on charcoal bread; and tofu cream cheese tarts with white chocolate icing. To drink, customers can choose from two of Between’s signature options: the Sesame Mountain – made of black sesame paste and coconut milk – or the Direct Trade Coffee, which has notes of ginger lily, lemon and oolong tea.
The set will be available exclusively at Between’s Tai Kwun location and via their online delivery service from 27 August to 26 September 2021.
The “Net Goes Green” food set is an expansion of Net-a-Porter’s “Net Sustain” initiative, a curation of eco-conscious fashion and beauty products. For a brand to be considered for the initiative, it must go through an assessment that takes into account human, animal and environmental welfare. It also has to align with certain criteria, like the materials used, ingredients and processes to reduce waste. Net Sustain currently houses 153 brands.
Also from August, Net-a-Porter is introducing Digital ID technology in certain products, which allows customers to track a product’s life cycle, from design to resale and recycle.
As more and more of us question the sustainability of the materials and life cycle of the products that we buy, retailers like Net-a-Porter are adjusting their practices accordingly. Consumers have the power to dictate to brands what they want to see in products, so let’s use this power for good!
Remember to head to Between at Tai Kwun from 27 August and 16 September 2021 to get your hands on the Net Goes Green set.
