[Bilingual eco blog] Green Living in Shanghai

50 reasons why Shanghai is No.1 50个喜欢上海的理由

I’m planning a trip back to my hometown – Shanghai. I haven’t been back for centuries, hopefully I won’t get sick this time. Yes, I get sick every time when I visit the city because of the air and water pollution. Good new is that Shanghai has been doing good job in improving its air quality and banning plastic bags is one of the biggest movements since 2008.

The city started banning ultra-thin plastic bags and charge regular plastic bags on June 2008. Now, the trend of ‘go greener’ are being promoted in the city, some people have already made the next step of behavioral change. They agree that the green move corresponds to their personal needs. However, some are still delaying their behavioral changes in time or conditional.

Lately, CNNgo published the 50 reasons why Shanghai is the greatest city in the world. Green living is the 40th reason. Many eco-conscious designers in Shanghai are leading the way to a greener lifestyle by promoting the concepts and ideas of eco-friendly and sustainable products. Nuomi is one of them. As an eco-conscious fashion designer, she is doing recycled and organic couture such as chemical-free undyed baby clothes, bamboo evening gowns softer than silk, and hip purses made from recycled billboard paper.
