Health and Sustainability
Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS)
LOHAS is a part of the population focused on sustainable living and ecologically innovative initiatives. LOHAS focuses on a variety of issues evolving around healthy way of life for individuals as well as an environmentally sustainable living. Therefore, LOHAS considerations focus on 6 main areas: Food & Nutrition, Mind & Body, Buildings & Energy, Home Life, Transport & Leisure and Work & Money.
In most of the western world 10% to more than 30% of the population are committed to green and health living in line with recent studies (USA 25%, Germany approximately 20%, Australia 15-30%). In Australia, the market share has almost doubled within the last 4 years, however remaining insecurity and scepticism about the claims made by manufacturers in more than 60% of the population still exists.
