A food waste guide for the people of Hong Kong

With a population of over 7 million people Hong Kong is a world city that is a melting pot of people, cultures, history and food. One of the many highlights of Hong Kong is the variety of food, which is cherished by its residents. Unfortunately as with every city HK creates a substantial amount of food which is wasted, 1/3 to be exact. Especially during the festive season when families reunite and slap up a lavish meal to celebrate the good fortune of plentitude a lot of food goes in the bin.

Yaumatei Gardener, together with the support of MaD Good Lab asked the question how the people of Hong Kong can wast less. The result was the Shi Po Cherish Food Guide, which is a booklet that aims to raise the social awareness of cherishing and saving food in daily life. The guide features methods and tips of saving food, which was the result of the teams research and interviews with the community.

Good Morning was the design studio behind the two booklets, who created the lovely illustrations and infographis to catch people’s attention. The guide is bilingual, and the easy to understand pictograms also help the positive information to be spread widely within in different classes.
