    Question organic?

    how organic can you be in hong kong?

    food?
    clothes?
    biodegradable nappies?
    suntan lotion?
    face gunk?

    and, forgive me for asking, but is fair trade a concept there yet?

    Things in all of those categories are available here - presume you are talking in relation to babies and children (but theyre definitely not cheap). The only thing I couldn't get hold of and had to import from the US was an organic cot mattress, though bedding etc. is all fine to get.

    There is an organic bedding and clothing store in Ocean Terminal. www.naturespurest.co.uk (I assume the mattresses they have are organic but worth checking with them)

    Here's some info on Fair Trade in HK. It's still tiny but growing and there are several groups and businesses trying to promote it.
