SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 20 February 2020 - Leading sustainable lifestyle brand Lexngo, revolutionises the plastics industry with innovative and sustainable solutions to everyday necessities. With a growing plastic problem -- an estimate of 1.76 billion plastic items used every year in Singapore, Lexngo's arrival echoes the definitive solution towards sustainable living with the introduction of eco-conscious lifestyle products.
Founded on the vision of promoting a sustainable environment for the physical and mental wellbeing of future generations, Lexngo aims to reimagine all categories of single-use plastics integrated within innovative product designs. A pioneer in the design of breakthrough eco-friendly lifestyle products under the umbrella of brands by Lexington Limited, Lexngo has championed an eco-mission on the go for more than 30 years with a series of technology patents, awards, industry recognition and collaborative partnerships across 24 countries worldwide.
Following the successful launch of its operations in Singapore late last year with the debut of the world's first resealable silicone alternative to one-off plastic straws -- e-Zip, the patented product was the latest addition to the brand's wide product category. With its continuous mission to reduce single-use plastic waste, Lexngo has also piloted other lifestyle products including Silicone Collapsible FlexiBox, Snack Box, Meal Box, Mugs, Bottles in various sizes and also Silicone Reusable Bags for groceries, travel, sportswear and accessories.
"Since the very beginning, a core priority for us has always been about driving an eco-mission on the go through sustainability efforts, and issues concerning plastics is one that we feel especially passionate about" said Chairman and Co-founder of Lexington Limited, Carlotta Wong. "We hope to tackle this growing plastic-waste problem in our daily lives, and to encourage others to take the first step forward."
