A few years ago, when I was looking for Eco-friendly detergents and hand soaps, the products I unconsciously chose was “Made in New Zealand” and that was the beginning of my interest in the country.
Then this summer, I was able to actually visit.

Underlying New Zealand’s people is the indigenous Maori worldview that “humans are only a part of nature and do not control it.”
Although it was just a 10 day trip, here is to share with you the Eco-friendly everyday life of North Island, New Zealand, where I seemed to come in touch with the worldview just a little.
