Bye Bye Hong Kong!
After 12 years of living abroad, finding my soulmate, having two children, adopting two cats, starting a successful business and exploring the world ... it's time to go home. My family and I will be relocating to Naples, Florida, USA this spring, to be near family, dig our roots and raise our kids. 

From the deepest part of my heart, THANK YOU so much for your amazing support, encouragement, appreciation and belief in what I've been trying to accomplish with this business. It's deeply impacted me on a personal level, and you've made a difference to mama Earth too.  

We will permanently close in Hong Kong on March 31st, 2021. Please enjoy 25% off everything while supplies last. Use discount code THANKYOU25 at checkout.

With Love & Gratitude,

    Hi Lisa,

    Just wanted to drop you a message after hearing the relocation news, despite the fact that we don’t know each other personally – hope you don’t mind! I’ve read some of your interviews before and was so inspired by your story, and therefore it’s sad to see you (and the business) go! But I am sure you have thought it out and decided this is the best decision for you and your family. All the best to your new chapter in life in the US!

    Thank you for bringing PFHK and the idea of plastic free living to Hong Kong. Being a mom of 2 and managing a business must not be easy. I also remember your shop is one of the very first of this kind in the city, when there wasn’t much awareness about sustainability. To be frank, I myself wasn’t very aware of how problematic our earth has become until around 2018 when I watched some documentaries and read more on the topic. Since then, I have adopted a low-waste lifestyle, changed my diet, and started encouraging people around me to do the same.

    But after years of lifestyle changes, I realise that personal influence is very limited. The impact of the changes I made alone, is far less than some tiny changes made by a group of people combined, which is why I started thinking starting a green business of my own, where I can reach more people and create bigger impact. And starting a sustainability shop like yours has naturally come to mind! I know there are quite a few other similar shops at the moment, so I am trying to do more research before taking further steps. If you don’t mind, could I ask you for some advice / tips about doing sustainability business in Hong Kong? For example, what do you find to be the biggest challenges? How was the market like and what changes you notice? How to avoid becoming green-washing? Any advice/ tips from you would be much appreciated. I understand you must be busy with relocating these days, so your time is really appreciated. Or if you prefer sitting down and meeting over coffee, I can do too. :)

    Anyway, thank you once again for bringing Hong Kong the very first eco shop. Although the shop is short-lived, but I am sure the impact it created will be forever lasting.

    Hi Lisa

    I am sorry to hear you will be closing PFHK! But excited to know you’ll be moving back home to start an exciting chapter with your family.

    Will you consider selling your business? I have been a fellow PFHK customer for a number of years and I love all your products and of course what the company stands for. I am passionate about making a HK a greener city and believe many of your customers will continue to support PFHK. I am happy discuss how we can take PFHK further. Please feel free to call me on 94303403.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
