Spring Cleaning

Living in an multicultural city like Hong Kong, I've noticed that in almost every culture there is a concept of cleaning up the space before the new year arrives. Growing up in Japan, the end of year cleaning was a big thing. Not only for homes but we did it in school before we went off for our winter breaks and it is also done in offices. I thought this was a Japanese concept but this also applies in other cultures too. If this has been done for centuries around the world, there must be a good reason.  Here in Hong...

Community Building: Recycle with us

Did you know... that once glass is made, it is NOT biodegradable? The illusion that glass is an environmentally-friendly product is not entirely false... the material is 100% recyclable, making it better than plastics (different plastic may not be recyclable, yet).

That's right: your favorite coconut yogurts, kefir, vegan butters, etc are all delivered to you in glass containers and, in order to make sure your community...
