OEKO-TEX Announces "Made in Green" Certification


OEKO-TEX, the International Association for Research and Testing in the Textile Industry, announced its newest certification for textiles, “Made in Green,” last week. The certification is an assurance that the textiles are safe in terms of human ecology and are also produced in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. Using a specific test number and a QR code, the textiles and manufacturing processes can be tracked thoroughly, offering complete transparency from the retailer to its consumers.


“Made in Green” replaces the previous certification system, OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus and the Spanish mark “Made in Green by Aitex,” which is already being used by the fashion brand, Mango, along with several others, as a way of distinguishing their products.

Star treks: Hong Kong's best night hikes


Night hikes are a great way to escape the crowds and the heat, while taking in a different view of the city


Andrew Li and three friends went on their first night hike last month, crossing the Twin Peaks above Stanley in southern Hong Kong Island. "We set off about 9pm," he says. "It was much more exhilarating than hiking in the daytime. There was only a narrow focal point, in our torch beams, and it was a lot cooler. During the day, there are usually others and noise. But at night you're in touch with nature; it's just you and your friends."


Tough, but well worthwhile. "We got to the tops of the peaks and looked over Repulse Bay, which was a pretty amazing backdrop," Li says. "Hiking at night was more private and serene, more magical."


Li and more and more people are discovering the rewards awaiting those who brave the dark — tranquillity, scintillating scenes, cooler temperatures, and an easy fit with busy work schedules.
