Living a Zero Waste Lifestyle

Claire Sancelot

As our city grows, is it necessary for Mother Nature to bear the brunt of pollution, excessive waste and a lack of green spaces in the name of urbanisation?

The force behind Malaysian bulk organic store, The Hive, started to go #zerowaste in 2010 when she had her first child in Hong Kong. Claire Sancelot’s Zero Waste Hong Kong blog ignited an eco-movement in the city, and when she moved to Malaysia in 2015, she got the ball rolling with her cause. A lack of affordable organic food and excessive single-use plastic packaging led her to start a mini, package-free co-op in Bangsar. Claire’s efforts earned her a 2017 United Nations award, and now, she’s in the midst of expanding in KL.
