The 2019 R.A.W. Prize Grant Recipient
On September 25th 2019, LUXARITY, in collaboration with Generation T, brought seven social entrepreneurs together from across Hong Kong, Greater China, and Southeast Asia to pitch for their chance to be considered for The R.A.W. Prize. All proceeds from the LUXARITY Preloved Pop-Up 2019 will go towards funding the HK$500,000 grant, and we are delighted to announce that this year’s grant recipient is Sissi Chao.
Known in the community as the “Princess of Trash,” Sissi is the founder of REmakeHub, a social enterprise which creates impactful and traceable circular waste management solutions and transforms waste into new generational lifestyle products through innovative and sustainable design. Sissi considers it her personal mission to help clean up the planet and has confirmed that the grant will be utilized to increase and expand REmakeHub's capabilities to collect and upcycle waste into valuable products.
As the official 2019 R.A.W. Prize recipient and LUXARITY ambassador, Sissi will be hosting a special event on October 17th on “Positive Impact through Responsible Consumption" during the annual LUXARITY Preloved Luxury Pop-up. We invite you to join for the event to meet Sissi in-person, as well as encourage you to drop by for the pop-up at Lane Crawford ifc mall from October 5th to 20th as all proceeds will go towards funding the grant and helping REmakeHub expand the impact of their work across the globe.
