Revolv Press Release Hong Kong,
June 2019 Revolv partnership with Invisible Kitchen, Impossible Foods & Swire
Change the world, not your day!
From June 17th – July 12th, Impossible Foods is partnering with Invisible Kitchen and revolv for its third edition of a month-long plant-based food truck partnership. With Invisible Kitchen as Hong Kong’s greenest caterer, and Impossible Foods’ meat made from plants, the food truck is set to become Hong Kong’s most environmentally friendly food truck.
To be even greener, Invisible Kitchen has teamed up with revolv to make this month-long event as zero waste as possible through the provision of reusable lunch boxes on a rental basis. revolv’s lightweight and durable lunch box will be suitable for a wide range of food, and available for rental directly at the food truck. Customers will be able to pay a deposit for the lunch boxes and return the box back to the food truck to receive the full deposit back.
revolv provides an elegant solution tackling the single-use waste global problem. About 32% of the 78 million tons of plastic packaging produced annually is left to flow into our oceans; the equivalent of pouring one garbage truck of plastic into the ocean every minute of every day. With revolv’s partnership, the event is set to save over 3000 disposable lunch boxes from going to landfill.
POP UP DATES: 17 June to 12 July
OPENING TIMES: Monday to Friday, 11:30am-2:30pm
LOCATION: Taikoo Place
Invisible Kitchen is a gourmet catering and events company in Hong Kong that focuses on responsible and sustainable catering. Their “Green Policy” involves various initiatives from sourcing sustainable seafood, acquiring local organic produce, offering plant-based alternatives to their popular meat dishes. By making sure their events don’t cost the Earth, they have been branded as Hong Kong’s greenest caterer.
Based in California’s Silicon Valley, Impossible Foods makes delicious, nutritious meat and dairy products directly from plants —with a mission to create wholesome and nutritious food, restore natural ecosystems and feed a growing population sustainably. Shortly after its founding in 2011, Impossible Foods’ scientists discovered that one molecule — “heme” — is uniquely responsible for the explosion of flavours that result when meat is cooked and genetically engineer and ferment yeast to produce a heme protein naturally found in plants, called soy leghemoglobin, to produce the perfect meat-like from plant-based meat.
revolv provides a game-changing solution that eliminates single-use plastic derived by the food takeaway industry through replacing it with lean, beautiful and smart reusable cups, bottles and food containers. By implementing and operating a network of aesthetic, durable tech-enabled reusable products, revolv is providing a favoured alternative to restaurants and consumers who rely on the convenience of to-go food and drinks.
Innovation in clean energy, sustainable infrastructure and eco-friendly solutions to environmental hazards are the need of the hour. The burden on the world’s natural recourses is immense, and it is high time we focus on renewability and diversification. While we are only scratching the tip of the iceberg, here are three innovations working to create an environment-friendly future.
