GoodtoChina inspires and supports sustainable living through environmental projects, social initiatives and consulting projects. We have four main initiatives: cool bike, urban farming, cool living and sustainable design. These are intended to make sustainable living accessible, beneficial and desirable to all Chinese urban residents, accelerating the move towards a lower carbon society.
From installing rooftop urban farms to leading critical mass bike rides around the city to designing eco-products and organizing sustainable events, GoodtoChina is changing the face of urban living in China.
GoodtoChina’s work would not be possible without the tireless efforts of both international and Chinese interns who diligently work in our office. If you are interested in interning with GoodtoChina, please contact us.
