Commenting on how the e-Zip differs fromother alternative single-use plastic straws available today, Carlottaexplained, "As a user of eco-friendly straws in the past, I faced a problemthat I'm sure many others would have come across -- the tedious process of cleaningit! While there are tools and brushes to clean the inside of these straws, wefelt 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. Wehope to continue to develop other innovative and sustainable solutions that ourcustomers will find useful and at the same time contribute to the protection ofour planet."
Following the company's commitment to promote sustainable living, thelaunch marks the first of many eco-friendly lifestyle products, which will be madeavailable in the Singapore market.

Singapore alone is battling a growing plasticproblem -- an estimate of 1.76 billion plastic items is used every year, with2.2 million of that attributed to discarded plastic straws daily. The NationalEnvironment Agency's (NEA) latest campaign "Say YES to Waste Less" launched onJun 8 aimed to get people to cut down on waste, by bringing their own reusable bags,bottles and takeaway containers. Ongoing efforts by non-governmentalorganisations have succeeded in raising awareness of Singapore's growingplastic problem and encouraging consumers to adopt sustainable alternatives. Asindividuals begin to consume more consciously, Lexngo's entry and the launch of thee-Zip, echoes the emerging trend toward a more sustainable society with theintroduction of their eco-conscious lifestyle products.
