THINK ESG Limited - Achievement Highlight


Gold Class in "Bye Bye Microplastics" Scheme



THINK ESG LIMITED has taken a significant step towards protecting the environment by officially participated the Voluntary Scheme for phasing out personal care and cosmetic products containing microbeads (PCCPs). This scheme is launched by the Environmental Protection Department of Hong Kong, which aims to eliminate the use of microbeads in these products and contribute to the reduction of plastic pollution.

Microbeads are tiny particles commonly found in personal care and cosmetic products such as facial scrubs, body washes, and toothpaste. These microplastics have been proven to have detrimental effects on marine life and ecosystems when they enter our waterways. Recognizing this environmental threat, THINK ESG LIMITED has made a commitment to support the initiative by actively cooperating with the trade to implement the "Bye Bye Microplastics" campaign.

By taking this proactive approach, THINK ESG LIMITED is demonstrating its dedication to sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The company understands that protecting our environment is not just a responsibility but also an opportunity for innovation and growth. Through their commitment to phasing out PCCPs containing microbeads, they are setting an example for other businesses in Hong Kong and beyond.

This voluntary scheme serves as a platform for collaboration between THINK ESG LIMITED and various stakeholders including manufacturers, importers, retailers, and consumers. By working together towards a common goal of eliminating microbeads from personal care products, we can make a significant impact on reducing plastic waste in our oceans.
