ABOUT THE PROJECT
What is it about?
barePack was born from the frustration upon witnessing the abundance of disposable plastics consumed in Singapore, and the injustice felt having to choose between convenience and sustainability.
barePack's practical day to day solution makes takeaway sustainable, fights disposables and the single-use waste culture, with a focus on education and the vision that we will all one day be zero-waste heroes.
