HK heartbeat #793 | 28 Aug 2018 | heartbeat.com.hk
This week we are ready for a reboot.
Our world has changed significantly in the past few years.
Our job of gathering useful information has evolved into verifying the accuracy of the vast amounts of material we receive every day.

Vegans are coming out of the closet and people everywhere are eating less meat. Sustainability and balance and mindfulness and conscious living are being used to sell everything from pudding to property.

We are getting into the habit of carrying our own bag, using our own lunch box and bringing our own bottle in our journey toward a zero-waste lifestyle, but as plastic keeps getting smaller, the reason for ditching plastic keeps getting bigger ... read more
