Go Eco-Friendly This Christmas!

I don't usually post about personal fab finds here in Digital Manila. However, I recently came across some interesting products from Echostore while meeting with some friends at Le Bistro.

In particular is this antibac hand sanitizer spray which smelled really good after application. The label also indicated no harmful chemicals used. It turns out that Echostore's environment-friendly products advocates sustainable lifestyle by using non-chemical based ingredients and natural/recycled packaging materials.

Green Baskets as Christmas Gifts

What made it more interesting were their Green Baskets. These are group-packaged products in Green Baskets made by communities with reusable and natural materials.

I thought that these would make great alternative Christmas gifts instead of the usual ones we give or receive every Christmas season.
They are available in variety sets with different people in mind. They have Green Kitchen Partners, Green Baby and Green Mama Delight for the family and home.
They also have the Spa Starter Kit for those who want some pampering and my favorite - the Green Starter Kit. Nicely packed in a designed utility box, it consists of a sugarcane-based hand sanitizer, Eucalyptus insect repellant spray, pocket healer balm, 60 Moringana capsules, and an orange room & linen spray, among others.
It would be noteworthy to mention that plastic wrap boxes they use are actually recycled plastic crate strap boxes made by the members of Pamana Pagasa Livelihood Enterprise assisted by the Institute for Social Entrepreneurship Education (I4SEE) and the Marie Eugenie Solidarity Foundation.

The Waterliliy baskets are from the Las Pinas which turned the problem of waterliliy over-abundance at the Zapote River into a livelihood program.

Moreover, the magazine boxes are rolled recycled magazines produced under the guidance of Filipinas Fair Trade Foundation (FFTF) while the Corn Husk Baskets are made from woven recycled corn husks by the farmers of Basista, Pangasinan - imagine all those sources!

They have branches in Serendra at The Fort and The Podium in Ortigas Center, Pasig. Please add P70 on the indicated prices for the packaging cost which includes the ribbon, ECHOstore tag, and cellophane.

You may place pre-orders with two weeks lead time and 50% down payment. Items in the catalogue above are subject to availability from the supplier.

So if you're looking for eco-friendly gifts for your loved ones, you might consider buying Christmas gift baskets at Echo Store!
