And you get to support a livelihood project while you’re at it!
I’d like to think that a good number of us are very visual people. Especially when it comes to buying things. With online buying becoming the norm nowadays, it’s not exactly possible to touch the items as easily as you were in a shop. Thus, our decisions are chalked up to faith, buyer reviews, and ratings.
Oh, and appearance foremost. Especially the packaging.
But beyond cute packaging, I also consider if I can reuse it. Perhaps it’s ingrained from hoarding plastic containers and utensils, but ideally, if I can use the packaging to keep other stuff, it’s a bonus for me.
So, when I saw the new packaging that Tinlo just launched for its handmade soaps, I was drawn in.
We wanted to come up with an eco-friendly packaging while helping local makers as well. By doing this, we can be sure…
The Tampipi Box
An eco-friendly packaging called the tampipi box, this woven basket is made with water lily. These baskets are made by the Tangab Women’s Association in Rizal as a livelihood project, which means that every purchase will help these women. And this aligns with Tinlo’s advocacy to minimize plastic, too, making it a win-win situation.
To debut the launch of its new packaging, Tinlo lets you get it for free. All you need to do is purchase 5 bars of this shop’s natural handmade soaps — simple as that. These make perfect gifts for parents, friends, and even your grandparents.
But wait, there’s more. If you get seven bars from Tinlo, you can have the tampipi box for free, and get free shipping while you’re at it! Better hurry though — promo runs until supplies last!
Of Natural Handcrafted Soaps and more
Tinlo is an artisan homebased business that creates natural handcrafted soap. The name “Tinlo” is a Hiligayon word that means “to cleanse or purify”. In line with this, the shop only does made-to-order soaps and soaps in small batches. That way, it can ensure good quality output and minimize on soap waste.
For orders and inquiries, you can message Tinlo on Facebook and Instagram (@tinlo.ph). Happy shopping!
