How do you tackle a problem that isn’t visible or clearly defined? One many refuse to acknowledge is even a problem in the first place? And one which affects more than 600,000 people every year? In 2010, Christopher Schrader joined forces with students in Hong Kong and embraced the challenge, organising the first 24 Hour Race to confront modern slavery. The result? The first ever law in India banning a trafficking channel.
When looking at the issue of environmental sustainability in Hong Kong, waste reduction is always an important point of discussion, as the city’s landfills are predicted to be exhausted by 2020. At the forefront of this is Garager Ceicy, who is the General Manager of Vegware, a UK-based company that produces plant-based, biodegradable packaging with a mission of producing 'Zero Waste'.
What do you eat when you’re the Co-Founder of Hong Kong’s first fresh produce and grocery delivery service? If you’re thinking some pretty amazing home-cooked meals, then you’re right.
We’re so thrilled to introduce Jou Sun Co-Founder Jessica to the Garage Community at Sai Ying Pun. It was great getting to know her and discussing how she came to launch this innovative product in Hong Kong, her vision for the future of food consumption in the city, and what we as smart consumers can do to empower local farmers and reduce food waste.
We’ll also be diving into topics we as Hong Kong residents are very aware of, namely that of food safety, transparency, and access to affordable, fresh produce. Keep reading to the end as Jessica shares her favourite recipe of the moment too!
We may lead busy lives, but taking a few seconds to check yourself out in the mirror is something we all have time for. Indeed, few members and visitors of Garage Collective will fail to notice the striking mirrors we have around our space, not succumbing to the fascination of gazing at our own profiles at least once.
Earlier this month, we sat down with Sarah Cottee, who is Head of Partnerships at Firetree, a NGO dedicated to creating lasting solutions to the basic needs of marginalised children and youth in Asia. Aside from learning more about her background in education and work for various charitable causes throughout her career so far, we also discussed the issue of feminism, and what it means to be a female professional in the workplace today.
Earlier this month, I sat down with Space Glider and Solunaliving Founder RACHEL LEE to chat about her art management consultancy, lifelong passion for painting, and the future of the art community in Hong Kong. Aside from being a DVR Garager, we also have Rachel to thank for curating the artwork at our flagship location, which we can confidently say is a match made in Abstract Expressionism heaven!
For a city as obsessed with a good sale as Hong Kong, OnTheList appeared like a gift from the shopping gods - otherwise known as Garage Society’s very first power couple, Delphine and Diego. Together, they co-founded the offline Flash Sale events company in January 2016, where members are treated to past-season items from premium and luxury brands at up to 90% discounts. Doesn’t get much more enticing than that, does it?
Known as the friendliest Garager we have the pleasure to know, Yuen Chong epitomises the best things about co-working with his optimism and energy. Before we get into that, let’s first start from the beginning. Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Yuen moved to Hong Kong almost 20 years ago and lives here with his wife and two daughters.
