1. La Xanh increasingly green
There is a question that Nguyen has been looking for answers for over 30 years:
“Who I am? What am I here for? Am I happy? Am I really me? ”
Each time Nguyen thinks she about to achieve happiness, the answer is disappointing Nguyen
I think I would be happy if I had a home. I thought that if I had the money, I would be happy. But not
Through the classes of psychology, meditation, mind, Nguyen broke that:
“The core of happiness is love.”
Including loving yourself, loving society, loving nature around you.
The source of love is the connection.Through the body, through the intellect, through the soul.
It is no coincidence that the unfortunate country of China has many people crowded to live in narrow apartment buildings; Bhutan, the happiest country in the world, breathes with the mountains and forests.
Therefore, La Xanh is a way for Nguyen and her companions to reconnect with nature through each straw we use every day.
“To do is to be happy, otherwise rest”
Therefore, one of the three goals of La Xanh is to:
“More and more green.”
To the team La Xanh and the companions increasingly close to happiness.
2. Towards a carpentry product
2.1. Nature is not to overpower, but to feel
The more intellectual society becomes, the more they will enjoy the rustic, because nature is not to overpower, but to feel.
This is a strange rule, but it is very true.
Europe is the place where the world’s most perfect economic law was created; It is also the place to nurture the most natural soulful wood carvers, such as Damiano Taurino, Giuseppe Rumerio, Giles Newman …
That is the reason why La Xanh geared towards carpentry product.
Because from instinct, we humans have a tendency to stick with nature already; Just is busy life making us forget only.
2.2. No competition, all just views
Because of this goal, Nghia refused the units requesting to import bamboo straws in color, square and beautiful; to put into their restaurant system.
Because if it is true that natural bamboo straws, it can never be the same color, square as cast from a mold.
The size of the straws is always different, only a few millimeters, but the difference cannot be evenly.
And on the natural bamboo there are always small brown spots, each straws with a different position; This is a “gift” that nature bestows on bamboo.
Because of this brown spot, the color of the bamboo straws always mixes brown, yellow, gray and black.
“The problem here is not price, competition, cheap price, but opinion.”
So you must be sincere first, then you are fortunate to meet people of the same opinion, to build a sustainable relationship.
3. Respect nature
3.1. La Xanh limits plastic waste to maximum
“Nature exists to be respected, not destroyed.”
That is the meaning of Nghia.
Therefore ultimate goal La Xanh towards, is to respect nature by respecting farmers and suppliers; Always use green solutions when possible; limit littering to a maximum.
But, it’s not so easy. Difficulties and hardships are what Nghia sees every day.
Many Things La Xanh accept sacrifice in return for respect for nature; but the results came very slowly, such as using packaging to be recycled paper, paper from cajuput; buying bamboo from farmers does not force prices.
Nghĩa knows that in order for farmers to respect the environment, they must first be economically secure.
It is difficult to talk naturally with someone who has to run three meals, but it will be much easier if they have economic stability
La Xanh does not force supplier prices because of that.
3.2. Give away is to get back
But, La Xanh continues to make efforts.
Not because thinks yourself more moral or holy than anyone; but because Nghia understands the simple thing:
“Respect nature, nature respects us.”
Nghia wanted to extend the cool mornings, to sit quietly in a corner of the street, enjoy the fat aroma of iced coffee, watch the flow of people and breathe the clean air …
To be naturally endowed with great things, Nghia must begin with respect for nature.
That is why Nghia with La Xanh perseveres along this path, starting with bamboo straws very small
