The orchard is called Mengyao Organic Ecological Farm. Looking into it, clusters of red kiwis give out fragrance, and this sweet fruit brings him an income of 120,000 yuan a year. Within some 10 acres of field, pomelo, orange, plum, and other fruits are also growing vigorously.

 

Six years ago, however, Feng Guirong ran a business of water-jet looms, which seriously polluted the local river, tarnishing the water with horrible black and stink substances. When it rained, the sewage even flooded into the soil.

 

Wangjiangjing town once enjoyed a reputation for its prosper in water-jet looms. Some small and medium-sized textile enterprises, however, with their low industrial level, backward equipment, and numerous illegal constructions, were the "barrier" for the transformation and upgrading of the regional economy.

In 2017, the town made up its mind to take the road of ecology, vacating 1,370 family workshops and more than 20,000 water-jet looms. 

 

Small enterprises gathered in the industrial park for transformation and upgrading. Compared with the previous small workshop, the standard workshop is clean and bright. After investing funds to update equipment, the competitiveness of enterprises has also been greatly improved, and the average output value per acre as well as the tax revenue, has doubled.

 

Like Feng Guirong, many retail investors who used to run water jet looms now turn to traditional tourism, smart homes, rural construction, and other green industries.

 

Nowadays, in Hongdian village, more than 2,500 acres of cultivated land surrounded by the "garbage river" is planted with lotus. In midsummer, the spectacular scenery of "lotus leaf boundless green" becomes an impressive scenery of Liansidang Scenic Spot in Wangjiangjing town.
