The situation in Hong Kong – To act? or to ignore?

The Recycling Bottleneck – Act or Ignore?


In Hong Kong, we have 3-colored recycling bins.

We have Green Community Stations.

We are educated on 3Rs (Reduce, Recycling, Reuse).

But… why we are still having the recycling crisis?

And not to mention… the recycling crisis is getting worse.

Solving the recycling crisis is extremely difficult, as it is never easy to change one’s habit.

If past methods didn’t work, we need to work out new solutions.

Our Mission

With a mission to alleviate the recycling crisis.

GrinBean is a Hong Kong-based science and engineering team formed by recent graduates and students from the University of Hong Kong. We work on technological solutions to enhance the recycling and recovery of materials, to close and slow the loops.

We believe that our next-generation deserves the same rights as we have today to enjoy the beautiful nature.
