Shampoola in Fogang county in Guangdong is known for its hot springs, but it can also now claim to have created a dress with foliage. Xinhua reports that the dress was made with 5,888 leaves by four people in a week in Qingyuan City. A couple of years ago, young (and also old) people in China began appearing in public with headwear featuring plastic plants, fruit and flowers. The infantile fad caught on in October 2015. Bean sprouts were the most popular. The fad was interpreted to be about conveying messages on protecting the environment.
