Quantum from the Earth can heal all of us
April 1, 2013

Talking to the Cape Town native is a little like being in the eye of a typhoon. Her piercing blue eyes light up as she switches from one subject to another without much concern whether her listeners are on board or lost somewhere in the Kruger.
"I love jumping from one thing to the next," admits Lizette Smook, the founder of InnovAsians. "Even my staff tells me that I speak too quickly. I have the type of personality that loves to be busy. I love going to China: Sichuan for the food, Harbin for the ice sculptures, the remoteness of Inner Mongolia. My latest fascination is with Guangxi."
Smook has traveled across China for nearly 20 years, initially to visit factories when she was sourcing manufacturers as a technical expert in the corporate world of apparel, and now to find green manufacturers for InnovAsians, a company she founded at the end of 2006.
Originally from Paarl, a town just outside of Cape Town, Smook grew up in the country's...

Innovasians join forces with NEW Korean technology

Quantum energy is a new unique sustainable chemical - free technology from the earth radiating energy from textiles and products that contains this quantum energy. We can add this to any product!! There is a lot of quantum on the internet – this one is unique as it encapsulates negative ion technology, far infra-red technology and quantum technology. This is proven and tested by extensive laboratory reports. The company producing quantum energy products with Innovasians Ltd has already 8 patents and 10 additional patents submitted.

Hong Kong Environmental Footprint
March 30, 2013

Why do large corporates all have CSR (Corporate Sustainable Policies) and all tick the boxes, but when it comes to events in Hong Kong – there is NO policy? Where is the EPD?
Just about 4 weeks ago we had the Hong Kong marathon and the amount of plastic cups collected after the event was quite disgusting:
This past weekend I have to give credit to ONE caterer at the stadium – Montana Grill
The packaging used by them – “BRAVO ” – finally is Bagasse as in the images below – 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable and NOT HARMFUL to humans. Bravo and congratulations Montana – you deserve mention as you are doing GREAT for Hong Kong environmental footprint and for Hong Kong landfill problems.
The packaging was amazing and for all those interested – this is what packaging looks like that has no impact on human health and also has a lower environmental footprint.
The rest was all the same….. same...

Changing our own behaviour
September 19, 2012

In Hong Kong we can buy what we want, when we want it. Convenience of retail operating hours is tailored to convenience and we can mostly buy anything we want at hours not generally available to most other Western Countries.
The ‘good’ life we lead is reflected in the refuse we discard to landfill annually. Recent SCMP press declared Hong Kong to be the largest refuse dump in the world, as per capita we dispose of almost 1 ton (1000 kg) of ‘garbage’ annually. That is rated as the highest in the world. Statistics in terms of qualifying this varies in the media and we roughly get to a large portion of our ‘garbage’ is food waste (there is a lot of waste left on an Asian dining table where Western families were generally taught and forced to ‘eat what was on their plate’ as part of disciplined education AND then of course there is all the ‘due date or food expiry dates or best before’ that force a large portion of...
