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
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."

0% plastic and BPA free

- 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
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.
Lexngo is a pioneer in the design
of breakthrough eco-friendly lifestyle products under the umbrella of brands by
Lexington Limited -- a global leader in sustainability
issues concerning plastics since it was founded in 1989. Over the years, it has
established a global presence across 24 countries. Equipped with a series of technology
patents, Lexngo has piloted other lifestyle products to reduce single-use
plastic waste. Some of these innovations include Silicone Collapsible
FlexiBox, Snack Box, Meal Box in various sizes and also Silicon Reusable Bags for groceries, travel,
sportswear and accessories.
In the near future,
Lexngo aims to deploy their industrial 4.0 technology to optimize production
efficiency while continuing their multi-faceted eco-product lines to cater to
different market needs.
