Mother Earth is kind of like a real mom. She shields us from horrendous rain and flood. She wears many hats to ensure that our basic needs in this lifetime are met: nature, air, agriculture, and more. Significantly, she is also the epitome of resilience as she shines regardless of how we treat her bountiful resources.
This month, we celebrated Mother’s Day; but we should celebrate Mother Earth everyday. To do so, why don’t we ditch unnecessary packages like those plastic wrappers from candies, chips, and chocolates? Help Mother Earth by reducing your carbon footprint through these eco-friendly products:
6 Affordable Products Mother Earth Will Love
Healing Sleep Lotion by Bini Natural Living
Come on, let’s keep it real: people don’t get a lot of fun and sleep anymore. Sleep deprivation is prevalent and oftentimes the cause of lifestyle sicknesses like hypertension, obesity, just to name a few. As such, I’d like to introduce this lotion I got from Bini Natural Living.
I got this during The Green Fair bazaar organized by 02 Space, a co-working space in Makati. They sell organic self-care products such as healing lotion, massage oils, and natural mosquito repellant. According to Bini founders, they are dedicated to infusing the lifestyle of the modern Pinay with healthy and organic products.
Organic Makeup by Organic Tita
Pregnancy changes everything, including your body, mind, and skin. Your body becomes more voluptuous or your skin becomes more oily. Therefore, the more we put chemicals on our skin, the more it becomes frail or exposed to skin diseases. To maintain your healthy and beautiful skin, choose organic makeup products! Organic Tita’s products are 100% vegan and proudly (hand) made in the Philippines!
Organic Tita’s Lash & Brow Serum, lipstick, and blush on are all plant-based. It’s made of Castor Oil, Vitamin E, Virgin Coconut Oil.

Trust me, you will love these cute, not-too-bulky soap bars that you can use for personal use or even sell! These natural loofah soap bars are made with Virgin Coconut Oil and Vitamin E, and are infused with essential oils.
Refill ‘N Beyond is a package-free and eco-friendly store located in Makati (O2 Space) and Tagaytay. Apart from their loofah soap bars, they also sell exfoliating and malunggay soap for only P65 each!

All of these items are affordable and can be given as gifts to practically anyone. As a mom, I would love to receive all of these gifts, especially those colorful lunch boxes! However, Mother Earth would appreciate more if we respect her, love her, and most importantly, obey her.
