Whether your approach to tanning is sunflower style or vampire-alike, we all should use protection when directly exposing to the sun as its UV lights are increasing their power and intensity. 无论你对光晒的态度是像一株向日葵一样的沉浸式还是像吸血鬼一样的见光躲式，由于太阳的紫外线递增增长，我们都应该在直接暴露在阳光下时保护皮肤。 But are all sunscreens similar? What does this imply? 但是，所有的防晒霜都差不多吗？有什么区别? Previously, we answered on how to be an eco-conscious traveler. 在此之前，我们谈论了如何成为一名注重环保的旅行者。 With this article, we want to give a quick breakdown
Individual input towards zero waste is significant. However, businesses can do their part too. Shanghai is witnessing an increase in more established businesses turning towards a sustainable outlook; specifically motivated to become a zero waste business. This is exemplified by our recent collaboration with Epermarket. 作为个体，我们投入到零浪费中很重要。但是，企业也可以发挥自己的作用。上海见证了越来越多的金牌企业正逐步转向可持续发展，尤其是与零浪费相关的行动。我们最近与Epermarket 合作就是一个例子。 Who is Epermarket?

We had a very special Earth Day this year, celebrating with our friends and clients the Earth and the hope for a brighter future. Together with imondi, we brought together the companies that believed in us and in our common vision of our future. When arriving at the imondi’s showroom at surpass court, we welcomed everyone with wine and fruit water in glass jars, and Eli Falafel provided amazing vegetarian dishes to satisfy the appetite of everyone at the end of the workday.
While winter might have arrived somewhere (no GOT spoiler here), spring is unquestionably coming to town. We have a long week ahead before Labor Days’ vacation, so we believe that there is no better way to celebrate Monday and Earth Day than start planning an outdoor getaway. 虽然冬天可能已经抵达某个地方(这里没有剧透)，但毫无疑问，春天已经来了。 离劳动节假期还有一周多的时间，在此之前，让我们以户外度假的方式来庆祝周一和地球日吧！ Source(图片来源): Pinterest If you are already following Zero Waste Shanghai, organizing a Zero Waste picnic will be an easy st
We usually eat veggies and fruits never considering how we can benefit from their peels. Fruits’ outer layers are full of vitamins and minerals, yet they are usually wasted. But, what we can do with these peels? Let’s check it out together! 我们经常吃蔬菜和水果，从来没有考虑过蔬菜与果皮有何价值。水果的外层富含维生素和矿物质，但它们通常被浪费了。但是，我们能用这些果皮做什么呢?让我们一起来看看吧！ 1.

Well, we have to be honest here. Who created and organized our planet was also a great economist. If you think about nature, it is conceived to have no waste whatsoever. Every living and growing being eats and produces energy, becomes food for another creature, and eventually, dying it converts into part of the soil again. There is no landfill in nature, every living thing is interconnected and made with the specific purpose of being reused for a new scope. This particular pr
So you probably know (or not) that the first R in the Zero Waste Lifestyle Code (cheez this sounds so formal) is REFUSE. Refuse what? Refuse things you don’t need …. and I usually proceed to give the example of goodie bags …. free pens, keychains etc. HOWEVER, our goodie bag is different.. I swear it is. Because this goodie bag will actually help you reduce your waste. It holds some samples from our favorite brands in Shanghai. We would not be recommending these brands if we
In one of our very first articles, we wrote about the environmental impact of meat production. We already discussed how livestock soars the consumption of water and land, pollutes through animal methane, meat processing, and transportation, to not mention the waste caused by the packaging. But what can we actually do as single individuals? Source: meatfreemondays.com Back to 2003, The Monday Campaigns Inc. in collaboration with the Center for a Livable Future at Hopkins Bloom
You know when sometimes you're so stuck in a series of habits and lifestyle, that you don't really know where to start to change and move towards that version of yourself that you aim for? The thing is, you need to start with baby steps. Whether that is prepping that one healthy meal every week, getting out to work out that one time, and then that one trick that you finally decide to adapt or implement: Whooosh! Boom! Game Changer! That's what we are trying to do with this we
I see quite a few examples around us that live by zero waste principles, but Yizhe (Patricia) Li (referred to as Yizhe in rest of article) takes it to a different level. Today, I’m going to tell you about Yizhe and her Ecohouse in Dali. 我一直关注周围的零浪费实践者们，而李艺哲则将零浪费提升到一个新的高度。今天，我就来说说李艺哲和她在大理Eco House(环保屋)的故事。 Yizhe Yi, Founder of Ecohouse Dali 李艺哲 - 大理Eco House的主人 The idea of a sustainable house was hatched when Yizhe left her successful corporate career overseas and decided to s

In the past months, we addressed the challenge that the fashion industry is causing to the planet.
在过去的几个月里，我们提到了时尚界对地球造成的影响与挑战。 Although the picture is still very complicated and serious, there are a lot of young entrepreneurs who are establishing new trends and raising hope that fashion can also be done differently.
虽然环境污染的情况仍非常严峻，但是有很多年轻的企业家正在建立新的方式，并希望时尚界在日异更新的趋势中也可以通过不同的方式保护环境。 One of those entrepreneurs is Xenia Sidorenko, a Russian denim designer who decided to start

There is a young girl, powerful and resolute. Her name is Greta Thunberg, she is only 16 years old, but she has already made great things. During the summer of 2018, she started her challenge to raise the awareness of the Swedish government about climate change. She was so influential that, in December, she was called to speak at the UN Climate Change COP24.

‘Clothing introduces you before you even speak ‘ a quote I read once and completely agree with. I think for most of us, clothing and accessories are really important as they are a reflection of how we feel and see ourselves. When it comes to my wardrobe, I prioritize comfort over style most of the time. My lifestyle and work require me to either run around town going from meeting to meeting, or stand up for a couple of hours at the time for workshops, walk around at a fast pa
The topic of menstruation is usually a topic people try to avoid as much as possible, or a topic that intrigues a lot of people. For me it’s the latter one and it all started with using my menstrual cup. I started using it for environmental reasons but when I discovered the other benefits it brought me, such as : know my body better, understanding my cycle and how it relates to my psychology, the impact I have on the nature, and … comfort. Yes comfort. But comfort is very per
