There is inherent irony in starting a blog documenting how to live an environmentally sensitive life in the city of Kunming when said blog is blocked in China. Hopefully, for people interested in a green lifestyle in Kunming, they will find a way to access ACRE.
I have been in Kunming three weeks now, and have already discovered a number of ways to be green. My first post features perhaps my most anticipated highlight of the city. As soon as I had my own kitchen, I joined the local vegetable Co-op from Green Kunming. They operate the largest organic food distribution network in the city. For 45 rmb, I get 5 kgs of organic produce.
This week’s order included:
- Baby Carrots
- Purple Lettuce
- Daikon Radish
- Purple Potatoes
- Collard Green
- Frisee Lettuce
I have been looking forward to being a part of a vegetable co-op for so long. What better way to be healthy than to have weekly shipments of locally grown, organic produce delivered to you. If you don’t figure out a way to eat everything in a few days, then your money will go to waste. It forces me to plan meals and cook healthy.
I recommend that everyone who is serious about their health and the environment find the organic food co-op in their city and join.
