Environmental protection is a global issue. The global environment has been damaged by the energy consumption, greenhouse gases and pollutants emitted by economic growth. “Energy saving and emission reduction” has become one of the major issues facing China. Ming Fai Group deeply perceives the importance of energy conservation and emission reduction for the current environment and future development, Ming Fai Group spares no effort in the road to green development.
Ming Fai Group has five production plants around the world, and is deeply aware that the consumption of non-renewable resources will bring irreversible and serious consequences to the environment. As a result, Ming Fai invested heavily in the development of environmentally friendly alternatives to non-renewable resources. As early as 2007, Ming Fai Group has applied starch-based bio-friendly materials to products such as toothbrushes and combs. Biodegradable additives such as PSM, ECOPURE, BIO-PET, etc. used in the product can quickly decompose the product in the soil environment, and the packaging uses stone paper and FSC paper to reduce environmental damage.
Ming Fai Group also cooperated with the ecofriendly brand Erutan and City University of Hong Kong, to help on the R&D formulation and the packaging design for a new product which is currently applying for patent protection – The plastic-free Erutan Shampoo Bar, to reduce the burden of resource consumption for the earth.
