SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 26 June 2019 – Lexngo, the leading sustainable lifestyle brand that designs and develops environmentally friendly products, has officially set up its office in Singapore to expand their business in ASEAN region. The company, which was originally started in Hong Kong, has also launched the world’s first resealable silicon alternative to one-off plastic straws — the e-Zip.
Designed for people on the go, the e-Zip, which comes in a variety of solid and translucent colours, is the first of its kind in the market. It does not only serve as an alternative to single-use plastic straws, but also features a patented tongue and groove connector which allows for easy cleaning, without the need of a cleaning brush. Besides the resealable and reusable properties, it is the most hygienic option available today. The e-Zip is made from the finest food grade silicone that complies with the EU food contact regulations for BPA and plastic-free sipping. It is also fully customizable and can be made with a specific pantone or single-colour logo.
Commenting on the launch of Lexngo’s e-Zip, Carlotta Wong, chairman and co-founder of Lexington Limited said “Lexngo aims to provide a complete solution for reusable products in the market. The e-Zip is not only economical, it also increases the operational efficiency and resource utilisation, for consumers and businesses, especially F&B outlets. We believe this small but powerful tool can help us stay in the forefront of a very pressing global issue — the increase of plastic waste.”
- Non-toxic: Made from 100% food grade silicone, 0% plastic and BPA free
- Durable: Leakproof, non-stick, waterproof, hypoallergenic
- Travel essential: Flexible and space saving storage with its bendy-form
- Multiple range of uses: Can be used in oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher (heat resistant up to +220°C and freezer safe to -40°C)
- Economical: Reusable
- Easy to wash: Can be unzipped for easy and thorough cleaning
Commenting on how the e-Zip differs from other alternative single-use plastic straws available today, Carlotta explained, “As a user of eco-friendly straws in the past, I faced a problem that I’m sure many others would have come across — the tedious process of cleaning it! While there are tools and brushes to clean the inside of these straws, we felt that it was not meaningful to have one additional tool to carry around. After months of research and product development, the e-Zip was finally born. We hope to continue to develop other innovative and sustainable solutions that our customers will find useful and at the same time contribute to the protection of our planet.”
Following the company’s commitment to promote sustainable living, the launch marks the first of many eco-friendly lifestyle products, which will be made available in the Singapore market. Lexngo hopes to inspire more businesses and consumers to be more conscious of the current environmental issues including the growing plastic problem.
Singapore alone is battling a growing plastic problem — an estimate of 1.76 billion plastic items is used every year, with 2.2 million of that attributed to discarded plastic straws daily. The National Environment Agency’s (NEA) latest campaign “Say YES to Waste Less” launched on Jun 8 aimed to get people to cut down on waste, by bringing their own reusable bags, bottles and takeaway containers. Ongoing efforts by non-governmental organisations have succeeded in raising awareness of Singapore’s growing plastic problem and encouraging consumers to adopt sustainable alternatives. As individuals begin to consume more consciously, Lexngo’s entry and the launch of the e-Zip, echoes the emerging trend toward a more sustainable society with the introduction of their eco-conscious lifestyle products.
