The past year since the Copenhagen climate talks has witnessed a fad called "low carbon". It seems the need to help the environment is more urgent than ever, and we can't wait to show our concern and care for the planet. Following are 10 examples of Chinese people showing how to live a life that is healthy, moderate and environment friendly.

Running green

A shaven-headed contestant in a marathon held in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province on Nov 7 drew widespread media attention. Calling himself "shaven-head and green leaf", the athlete ran the marathon around Xihu Lake dressed up in green leaves and carrying a green flag with "low carbon" written in Chinese.

Chen Jun- his real name- said he shaved his head so less water is needed for washing his hair. The marathon ended on Nov 7, but Chen came back to Hangzhou days later, and ran around Xihu Lake dressed up in the same costume for the next 15 days "to promote low-carbon lifestyle". [Photo:]
