Just when you think you are not much of a help in saving the world, zero-waste stores are starting to pop up to help you out! Zero-waste stores believe that even a single act of buying unpackaged products could mean less plastic in the oceans and landfills. Believe it or not, it matters until the next umpteen years. Let’s start with the launch of Eco Hotel’s zero-waste store!
Eco Hotel Philippines is known for their environment-friendly hotels across the country. Thanks to their social media followers who showed support in the idea of creating a zero-waste store, they launched their refilling station of organic bathroom essentials at Spaces, Makati.
The launch was swamped with zero-waste and nearly zero-waste lifestylers, as well as those who are planning to start their zero-waste journey, to promote their #BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) campaign.
Eco Hotel PR Manager Aym Bagatsing shares that the refilling station will later on expand to their branches in Tagaytay and Batangas that will hopefully develop into zero-waste stores of other organic food, as well.
The refills are available for shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, and lotion made of non-harmful chemicals, all of which bear their luuurvely signature scent. These organic products have a shelf life of two years in a bottle container.
The pumps are actually reused 5-gallon water containers dressed fashionably in katsa cloth.
Catch their refilling stations on August 18 at Cabins Eco Hotel and on August 22 at Containers Eco Hotel at an introductory price of Php99/250g!
