乐活族 LOHAS

乐活族(LOHAS)是Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainability(健康及可持续的生活方式)的缩写形式,指的是一群乐观、善解人意、关爱环境和健康,行善并且以其为乐的人。这个概念在上世纪中叶的时候源于英国。

Commercially, LOHAS describes an integrated, rapidly growing market for goods and services that appeal to consumers who value health, the environment, social justice, personal development, and sustainable living.

从商业上来说,乐活族描绘了一个综合的、快速成长的商品和服务市场,那些珍视健康、环境、社会公正、个人发展以及可持续生存的消费者都会被吸引到这样的一个市场。

Beyond the categorization of consumers, the LOHAS "concept" is further divided into five sectors that represent the market within which products fall. They include: Sustainable Economy, Healthy Living, Alternative and Complementary Healthcare, Personal Development, and Eco-friendly Living

抛开消费者的分类不谈,根据乐活市场上产品的所属类别,乐活族的“概念”可以细分为五类。他们包括:可持续的经济、健康的生活、可选而互补的医疗、个人发展,以及生态友好型生活方式。

总而言之,“乐活”是一种环保理念,一种文化内涵,一种时代产物。它是一种贴近生活本源,自然、健康、精致的生活态度。
