Less is More

Hong Kong Tatler - - Editor’s Note -

Bridge ex­pert Ta­nia Mo­han in our How To fea­ture, p. 198 or a num­ber of years now the world, if not Hong Kong, has been pre­oc­cu­pied with en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues. The mes­sage that we need less is in part driven by style guides that sug­gest we get rid of items that no longer spark joy—thank you, Marie Kondo— but also by those who, while not nec­es­sar­ily ad­vo­cat­ing that we need less, are cer­tainly ac­tively en­cour­ag­ing us to think about where ev­ery­thing goes when we no longer need it.

The writ­ing is on the wall, and yet the ma­jor­ity of us still only know just enough about plas­tic oceans not to sound stupid. We do bits here and there. We re­cy­cle when it’s easy, eschew bot­tled wa­ter and plas­tic bags, but are guilty of only scratch­ing the sur­face. Claire Breen Mel­wani (cen­tre) with Kather­ine Schae­fer and Ivan Pun at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball
