Ceicy Wong, Vegware
Educated in Taiwan, Hong Kong, the UK, the US and France, Ceicy Wong takes an international approach to a global problem: waste caused by single-use plastics. She introduced Vegware to Hong Kong in 2015, with the aim of reducing the city’s reliance on plastic food packaging by instead diverting brands to Vegware’s fully compostable plant-based packaging that can be easily composted alongside regular food waste. With an MBA in luxury brand management from ESSEC Business School in France, Ceicy’s international background gives her a comprehensive insight into the future of sustainable development.
