    Other species can teach us important lessons about ourselves and life in general. What has your cat taught you?

    We never use single plastic bag for pets' poo poo. We are lucky to have a backyard for them and will clean up every morning.

    Temperature of HK's summer is horribly high. And because of the outbreak of pandemic, people stay home and switch on many many A/C. Is it really necessary? Or, can we only switch on 1 A/C at home?

    Take a moment to estimate how many disposable daily contacts you may have used over the years. What would be your impact now of switching to a contact brand with a longer lifespan?

    I have been reusing contact len cases for many years. It could be used to fill skincare or medical cream when you travel.

    We started to use eco shampoo bar for our pets. The down sides of it is higher price and less bubble. However, considering the up sides we believe it worth - healthier and good to the environment!

    We have installed solar energy lights in the garden to save energy. Will see how it does.

    With the outbreak of pandemic, I think we should start to think about how to handle the waste of wraps, masks etc.
