By  - 6 years ago

Metal straws have been a thing for a while now and in recent years, many brands and companies have become more environmentally conscious and have gone cruelty-free with their products.


If there’s one small and simple way we can cultivate a zero-waste lifestyle, it’s to support and purchase from brands whose specialty is reducing our carbon footprint and making a positive impact on the environment.


Here are local eco-friendly online stores you should shop from next.

If you haven't noticed yet, our deodorant now comes in a trigger spray nozzle. Easier to hold and spray and no more clogging ??? Our deodorant is very versatile. Not only it protects from underarm odor and sweat, but we've received feedback from our customers that it also work GREAT as foot deodorant and also as a hair deodorant for gym rats and yogi customers who cannot shampoo their hair after a sweaty sesh — they just spray all over their hair and scalp and it eliminates the sweaty odor. We couldn't believe it ourselves so we tried it, and voila, it does work! ????? We are so mighty proud of this deo. Despite being 100% natural and preservative-free, it remains reliable, effective and affordable. ??? Our deos are available at @thevegangrocerph @greenerykitchenph @indulge.ph @girlandtheoutdoors @humblemarketph You can also order directly from us by sending us a message, or see us every Sunday at @goodfoodsundays in @mandalaparkph in Shae Blvd, Mandaluyong. ? Thanks again, to our loyal customers and supporters for making Zero Basics known to everyone. We are changing the world. ?☀️? . . . . . #ZeroBasics #ZeroWastePh #vegan #crueltyfree #plantbased #plasticfreepackaging #refillable #handmade #madewithlove #localbusiness #effective

This local vegan company sells 100% plant-based products that come in reusable containers. Not only are their skincare and beauty products cruelty-free, organic, and freshly made, but they’re affordable to boot! Their items range from shampoo, toners, and soap to utensils and cutlery.


You can get their products through their Facebook page.


Finn for skincare and beauty

Finn is all for sustainable living. Not only are their skincare products natural and cruelty-free, all their items are refillable too!


When you’ve used up their serums or oils, you can drop off or send your empties to them (or visit their pop-ups!) and they’ll refill your tins, bottles, or containers with your product of choice. They got lipsticks, lip pots, vitamin C serums, and they even have a balm for eczema sufferers!


You can place your orders through their Instagram.


The Old Wood for furniture


The Old Wood was the brainchild of a couple who had no background in furniture-making, but found the passion for it.


All the furniture pieces they design themselves and are handcrafted from reclaimed wood and sustainably sourced timber. So while they beautifully craft modern pieces, they are also essentially helping reduce deforestation by recycling wood.


Contact them through their Instagram page for more!


Jacinto and Lirio for office supplies

Forget animal leather — Jacinto and Lirio offers handmade plant leather goods with products like journals, planners, and bags. Their items are made from the pesky water hyacinths that have been infesting the waters in Rizal and Laguna. By making use of the vegetation, they are helping unclog the waterways!


You can purchase their items from their online store.


Funk Trunk for cutlery and utensils

Together with Make A Difference, Funk Trunk’s initiative is to plant a tree for every item purchased, hence their hashtag #BuyAProductPlantATree.


Their ultimate goal is to reforest the Philippines and it has been so since they started in 2014. Their sustainable line include products like bamboo straws, tumblers, and utensils made from recycled wood. Oh and bonus points for them because they customize their items for you, too.

Check out all their items on their website.
