The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant shift in the way we consume food.

With the advent of food delivery services like Uber Eats and DoorDash, delivery options have finally expanded beyond pizza and Chinese food, requiring increasingly wasteful packaging solutions -- for those who can afford it. But with lockdowns and social distancing measures in place, more and more people are turning to food delivery services to have their meals delivered right to their doorstep.

This trend has been a blessing for many, providing convenience and a sense of normalcy in a time of uncertainty. However, it has also led to an unprecedented increase in the amount of single-use plastic disposed of daily.

But how can we solve this problem? How can individuals, innovative tech companies, and governments work together to eliminate plastic packaging?

Featuring two Hong Kong-based tech companies, EcoInno and ClearBot, this episode explores how we can tackle ocean pollution and the micro-plastic problem through innovative tech and responsible choices.
