We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors - we are borrowing her from our children - Seneca

In this issue : New on the directory

This week, we reflect on a year gone by.

There is a new awareness of and interest in making earth-friendly, carbon-neutral, healthy choices in Hong Kong. When heartbeat began with our first e-newsletter in October 2001, there were a few committed consumers who were willing to go the extra mile and locate products and services that fit with their natural values. 

Today, more customers are demanding to know where their food comes from, how it was grown and what was involved in processing.

New shops are opening to meet this growing demand. The heartbeat business database has ballooned over the past 12 months and will do our best to update you with the latest contact details to help you make natural choices more easily.

The website directory has continued to expand with new advertisers who make it their business to be natural. We think that customers became more informed in the past 12 months than in the past 12 years. And the one-planet lifestyle will soon become mainstream, leading to more ESG investment options, easier access to healthy foods and higher expectations of sustainable business practices.

How will your lifestyle change in the coming year ?

Listen to your own heartbeat.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Margaret Mead
