IT'S BEEN A FEW WEEKS since Chai Jing took WeChat by storm with her documentary "Under the Dome." She moved us with the alarming reality of environmental conditions in China and their effect on all of us.
Let's not forget that concern, that desire to change the situation.
We cannot rely solely on government and corporations to take action.
WE are part of the problem. WE can take action.
To that end, Hangzhou Green Drinks invites you to attend the HANGZHOU GREEN LIVING EXPO on March 28, where you can receive tools for living a greener life and take action towards a healthier environment. Learn how to make your own air filter, report toxins in water, compost your food, start a green business, and buy household products that are natural and sustainable. Meet business people and ordinary citizens who are making environmental change happen. Win green products in a raffle!
This event is brought to you by Hangzhou Green Drinks to launch its newest citywide initiative, the “Hangzhou Sustainable Lifestyle” event series. Expect a year of workshops, trips, presentations, and film screenings, all focused on demonstrating what you can do to lead an environmentally sustainable life. Themes include Air Quality, Food Safety and Production, Healthy Home and Products, Water and Energy Conservation, Transportation. Stay connected with us on WeChat to receive regular updates!
