“The future is now. #REDUCE is the new attitude.”
— Ada Yip, CEO of Urban Spring

Urban Spring is committed to offering innovative and sustainable solutions to reduce single-use plastic waste in Hong Kong.

In fact, Hong Kong people purchase over 1,500,000 bottles of water everyday. We believe one of the best ways in fighting the seemingly never-ending battle is to offer a refreshing and engaging solution of accessible freshwater.”

Our first move is to enhance the convenience to refill water across Hong Kong. We offer safe drinking water through well-designed and well-maintained water dispensers all over the City.
