A student mentioned to me this weekend that this new term is becoming more popular in Taiwan and around the world. The term is LOHAS. It stands for Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability. It seems to be a continuation of the sustainable, green, and non-conventional, and ecological lifestyle cultures. These cultures have been growing in popularity where I come from and in Taiwan. LOHAS is a group of companies whose goal is to further these agendas. Here is a statement from the website:

LOHAS companies practice “responsible capitalism” by providing goods and services using economic and environmentally sustainable business practices. LOHAS business owners and industry leaders from around the world meet each year at the LOHAS Conference to discuss industry trends, share ideas and learn how to run a successful LOHAS business.

Here is a website LOHAS online:
