That things are about to change I figured out at the 5th Green Fair at Chulalongkorn University, which was held from 9-12 February.
The Bangkok Post – the biggest Thai newspaper in English – wrote about the Fair: “We can all do our bit to save the world by living an environmentally-friendly existence. For those thinking of adopting a greener lifestyle, the place to visit is Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Arts, venue for the fifth annual Green Fair.”
Let me share some impressions with you:
The classes on organic gardening were all in Thai, so I did not visit them.
The range of products sold was quite small but still I managed to get some addresses of organic markets in Bangkok, if you’re interested contact me!I wouldn’t believe it but this really was vegetarian even without fish-sauce! Unfortunately, the veggie-options in Bangkok are often not Thai or not fully vegetarian/vegan.
The fair was definitely a good starting point for the quest of the green in Bangkok. I’ll will keep you updated. And P.S. I also got my blood tested, so far I’m not in danger because of consuming too many agrochemicals (or at least that’s what I think she said).
