2014 LOHAUS Shanghai CNY logo甲午年已经悄然而至,乐豪斯也将以全新面貌迎接新的一年。在新的一年中,乐豪斯将为空间的可持续性、娱乐性和便捷性付出更多的努力,让所有的会员享受到更舒适的活动场所、会议室以及联合办公空间。 2013年6月,乐豪斯在上海崭露头角。作为上海第一家以空间运营为盈利项目的社会企业,乐豪斯为顾客提供极佳的活动场所、会议空间、联合办公区域。乐豪斯是上海独树一帜的创新型社会企业,通过短短八个月的运营,乐豪斯证明了自己的功用绝不仅仅限于办公场所,其经营模式模式具有可持续性,值得大家借鉴。 乐豪斯是如何以社会企业来运营的?乐豪斯被两种理念所启发,一是健康可持续的生活模式(LOHAS),一是二十年代的包豪斯运动(Bauhaus),主张建筑和设计合二为一,这种理念至今影响着人们的生活。 在《乐豪斯宣言中》,您可以对乐豪斯的健康可持续城市生活的哲学有更好的了解。简单来说,上海乐豪斯是一个盈利性社会企业,并且把100%的盈利用于做出有影响力的社会活动。这意味着,乐豪斯空间出租、会议室出租以及联合办公区域的所有收入所得都会用来支持重要的社会活动,如在上海的城市环境中节能减排,提高居民的健康素质等等。 2013年,乐豪斯主要的活动有:安装双层隔音窗,顶楼隔热隔音处理,以及整栋楼的LED灯的改造,这些改造都有利于减少电能的消耗。身体力行,耳濡目染,乐豪斯用自身的改造鼓励人们在工作生活中节能。煤炭燃烧是中国东部的大部分发电方式,省电就意味着减少了有害气体的排放。乐豪斯自身的升级会鼓励人们在工作生活中节能。 举一个最好的例子,在2013年夏天,乐豪斯LED灯的升级计划让整个空间的月电费减少了几百块。长此以往,大约在11个月的时间里,我们就能收回安装LED灯的大约7000元成本。

  • 铺设亚麻纤维的地毯。这种地毯有助于隔热、减噪,空间因此变得更加温暖舒适。同时,乐豪斯支持本土企业,所购地毯都是中国本土的优质品牌。
  • 安装最先进的激光投影仪。先进的激光投影仪在两个会议室中保持鲜明的亮度,运作时所发出的声音和热量都极大地降低,热量的减少降低了会议室中空调的电费。
  • 提供更多的美食选择。乐豪斯与Pure and Whole(原本的NOSH and Kush)建立良好合作,给顾客带来更多美食。

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA2013年中,许多的公司、组织和个人都享受到了在乐豪斯开展活动或者举办会议的乐趣,2014年,相信会有更多的人选择乐豪斯。将来,上海也许会有更多的出租会议室和空间场地的社会企业,为了迎接竞争,乐豪斯也将全力以赴提供更多的特色以及更好地服务。 2014年是乐豪斯可持续计划的大年。这一年中,可持续计划将被更好地贯彻,从对供应渠道的选择,运用以及回收将在乐豪斯中形成一个良好的循环。

2013 Miss Earth China

LOHAUS is partnering with Miss Earth China, the world’s top beauty pageant promoting environmental awareness and action, to launch Shanghai’s first light bulb recycling and LED replacement program.

Join us on Sunday November 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to learn about LED light bulbs, and recycle your old, non-working bulbs for working bulbs. The first one hundred attendees also get a new LED bulb to use as well.

At 10:30, 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30 there will be an informational seminar on the 2nd floor of LOHAUS describing the lighting project in more detail, how to understand different LED bulbs, and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss LEDs with others.

light bulb recyclingYou will be able to meet Miss Earth contestants to learn more about LED light bulbs, see our LED demonstration wall and observe various light fixtures all using LED bulbs.

Event date: November 24 (Sunday)

Event time: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Address: LOHAUS, 50 Yongjia Road (near South Shaanxi Road) (Click here for map and detailed directions)

Phone for information: 021 – 5212 0268

Check out our video introducing the event on Youku:

Click here for direct link.

If you just want to learn about LEDs, you are also welcome to stop by and participate by attending one of our free seminars.

Limit one recycled light bulb per person. We cannot guarantee that stock will be available matching your exact bulb size and wattage, but you can choose from available options on a first-come-first-served basis until our stock of working light bulbs is depleted.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why did we create a recycling and swap program?

LOHAUS recently upgraded all of its older incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs to new, energy-efficient LED bulbs. This has allowed LOHAUS to save hundreds of yuan a month in direct electricity costs and more in related savings such as reduced air conditioning during the summer. In doing so, on of the negative byproducts of the upgrade is dozens of light bulbs which are still useful are now sitting in boxes awaiting disposal. Rather than throwing away useful light bulbs, we believe that reusing them elsewhere until their end of their working life is the most appropriate alternative to immediate recycling of the materials.

We found that there were few avenues to donate working light bulbs so we came up with the idea of swapping them directly with the public for their non-working bulbs and then disposing the non-working materials in a safe and appropriate way.

What kind of light bulbs can we replace and recycle in this program?

We have dozens of standard-sized (E27/E26 and E17) incandescent and CFL bulbs in a range of wattages, from 25 W up to 100 W.  If you need one of these bulbs and have a non-working matching bulb, bring it and we can replace it for you with one of our still-working bulbs.

We also have several dozen working halogen spotlights (e.g. MR16), some fluorescent tube lights (T4-T12), and some special-format lights (H butterfly connectors) and more.

Can I donate my own working light bulbs to the project?

Yes! If you believe in LED lighting and want to upgrade your own bulbs to LEDs or are already in the process of upgrading and want to donate your working bulbs to the project, that is also OK, we will swap them with others in the public who need a replacement. Please bring your working light bulbs packed securely in paper or a box marked clearly with the type of bulb (incandescent, CFL, etc), the size (E17, T5 etc) and the wattage (eg. 50 W) so we can exchange them more easily.

Can I give you all my old, non-working bulbs for recycling?

We would love to help recycle all the non-working light bulbs but at this event we have limited space to deal with a large volume, so we ask that you bring only one non-working light bulb. If this event is successful, we will expand the program in the future where a larger recycling option might be possible.

Can I help in some way?

Yes, we welcome help on the project. Are you a light designer, engineer or person already familiar with LED lighting?  You can help us to educate the public by participating in tours of LOHAUS. Are you working for an LED company and want to show your products at LOHAUS? Please contact us about cooperation opportunities. For these and similar inquiries to help, please write to us using the Contact form or email contact “at” LOHAUS.cn

我们非常欢迎您来参加此次活动,了解LED灯和灯泡更换。

灯泡更换活动中,每人只有一次机会,每次只能换一个灯泡。新的灯泡的尺寸和功率并不一定能和您的旧灯泡相同,但本着先到先得的原则,先来的人可以优先选择。

常见问题:

为什么乐豪斯要举办这个灯泡更换的活动?

乐豪斯最近把室内所有的白炽灯和荧光灯都升级成了全新的效果更好的LED灯。这让乐豪斯每个月省下了几百元的电费和空调费(白炽灯发热会消耗空调的电力)。升级之后,大量完好的白炽灯泡/荧光灯泡被闲置。我们并不愿意把这些好的灯泡扔掉,我们认为在其他地方继续使用这些灯泡是对物品回收再利用的另一种体现。

我们发现在中国几乎没有地方可以让这些旧灯泡得到再利用,所以我们有了灯泡更换的想法。让大家直接用报废的灯泡来换这些完好的灯泡,之后我们会用安全恰当的方法来处理这些没有用的灯泡。

在活动中,我们可以换取什么样的灯泡?

乐豪斯中现有的灯泡是标准尺寸的E26、E27和E17的白炽灯泡和荧光节能灯泡,功率在25瓦到100瓦之间。如果您想要一个这样的灯泡,并且也有不再工作的可以相配对的灯泡,请把不工作的灯泡带来,我们将免费为您更换一个依然工作的灯泡。

我们还有几十个完好的射灯(如MR16),日光灯管(T4-T12),和一些形状特殊的灯管(H型蝴蝶型灯管)等。

我可以用依然能够使用的灯泡来换灯泡么?

当然可以。如果你认为LED灯是最佳选择并且想要把您的灯泡都升级成LED灯,你可以用您依然可以使用的灯泡来换LED灯,我们将把您的旧灯泡作为完好的灯泡继续换给那些想要更换坏灯泡的人。请把您的灯泡带来,装在纸里或者盒子里,在包装表面标明灯泡的种类(白炽灯、荧光灯或其他),型号(如E17、T5等)以及功率(比如50瓦),这样我们可以更方便地把您的灯泡进行分类和更换。

我可以带来两个或两个以上的不工作的灯泡用于换更多的灯泡么?

我们非常乐意回收所有的不工作的灯泡,但是在这次活动中,我们的场地有限,无法容纳更多的灯泡。因此我们只能够为您更换一个不能够使用的灯泡。如果这次的活动大获成功,我们将把这个活动进行扩展,那么更大规模的交换活动就可以在此进行。

在活动中我可以帮忙么?

当然,我们非常欢迎您来帮忙。如果您你是一个灯泡的设计师、工程师或者对于LED灯十分熟悉的人,您可以在乐豪斯的活动中帮助我们普及LED灯的知识。如果您是LED灯公司的职工并且想要在乐豪斯中展示你们的产品,敬请联系我们进行相关的合作。关于诸如此类问题的咨询,敬请通过官网LOHAUS.cn上的联系方式联系我们

On September 24th, Green Drinks China and The Shanghai Forum co-hosted an event at LOHAUS titled “Debate a Debt-Free Monetary System: Can we have a sustainable financial future?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe event was attended by more than 45 people from both GDC and Shanghai Forum. They used several floors at LOHAUS to watch a portion of the video, “Money as Debt” (Part I), followed by a discussion and information sharing.  After this, the group adjourned to the 1st floor for a debate and Q&A

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Robert Ward

The debate was lively and interesting, and included as participants a Shanghai-based architect, Robert Ward, who debated on whether the global economy was in fact dependent on a growing indebtedness that will eventually lead to instability and even the possibility of economic collapse. The debate was moderated by Shanghai Forum organizer Jason Inch.

If you are interested in learning more about China’s economy and business trends, please join the Shanghai Forum.

Globe lights with IKEA LEDARE 2.3 W bulbs to replace 25 W incandescent bulbs – a huge energy savings

On September 10th we introduced the LOHAUS’s LED lighting upgrade project at a special event hosted by the Shanghai LOHAS Eco Meetup Group. Focusing on the use of LED lighting for the home and office, the talk included a tour of LOHAUS’s more than 65 light points that have been switched to LED lighting. This is one of the first old house renovations in Shanghai to include LED as a primary indoor and outdoor lighting choice.

In addition to the LED lighting project and the LED ROI at LOHAUS, the talk also covered:

  • An introduction to LED lighting
  • Overall drawbacks and benefits of LEDs
  • Advice on which manufacturers to choose for LED lighting

We heard that China’s commitment to LED lighting is huge. China has become the world’s leading manufacturer of LEDs yet the vast majority is exported while China itself uses older lighting technologies. So, the question is, how to stimulate domestic demand for LEDs, which are currently quite expensive.

The overhead lights in LOHAUS’s meeting rooms are super-bright – and warm – Philips Master 17W LED bulbs

For example, some of the LED bulbs used at LOHAUS, such as the Philips Master 12W and 17W bulbs, have retail prices of more than 180 and 290 RMB. While as bright as normal bulbs, they are out of reach of many Chinese consumers budgets. However, it was shown during the presentation that new lines of LEDs, such as the LEDARE line from IKEA, can be much more cost effective.

In retail or outdoor lighting, the cost savings is often the driving factor, but there are different reasons behind considering LED lighting for home and office use. LEDs can eco-friendly, durable, cost effective, reduce ambient heat, and increasingly can offer unique illumination solutions such as changing color intensity depending on the time of day or occupant needs: Bright in the morning, warm and comfortable in the evening.

If you want to learn more about LED lighting in the home and office, visit LOHAUS to see how they are being used. Or just check out this demonstration wall showing the difference:

Harrington, an expert in eCommerce and search engine marketing in and outside China and founder of Darwin Marketing, discussed with attendees in an interactive Q&A format his thoughts about China’s eCommerce and mobile development, as well as SEO and SEM strategies. Some of the interesting things discussed included:

  • The importance of an Alibaba-Sina Weibo linkup
  • Why the Baidu-PPS.tv aquisition is needed for Baidu
  • How Alibaba is an overlooked channel in search strategy
  • The keys to a successful mobile strategy in China
