Clean China

June 1, 2009 at 12:30 am 1 comment

One of my first impressions in China was surprise at how unlittered it is compared to the other Asian countries I’ve been to. Not only do they have city cleaners who walk the streets sweeping but there are numerous garbage cans with a RECYCLING compartment. Every 10 meters there is a garbage can!

Just a few km outside Yangshuo are villages and farm fields. The houses in these villages are made of cement and have a modern style to them, very unlike the simple bamboo huts I’ve become accustomed to seeing in Cambodian rural villages.

    Hi Yelena,

    What beautiful pictures!
    I have this really exciting tool to help you calculate the impact of your travelling on the environment, and I thought it might fit in well with your interests. Though we love to travel, carbon emissions are an issue that is starting to worry a lot of us. The Flight CO2 Calculator will hopefully encourage us all to be more socially responsible by perhaps considering greener travel options.
    If you are interested, take a look at It would be great if you could post the calculator on your blog. I really think it would add value to your site as a whole by sparking awareness, interest and debate from your followers. I hope you like it!

    Many thanks ,
