Like we said in our Earth Hour story last month, BeautyMNL is committed to taking small steps towards a more eco-friendly lifestyle—and that means helping you along the way, too. We’re steadily building our catalogue to include greener alternatives, from bamboo straws to organic cleaning supplies, to make the transition even easier.
And now, to celebrate Earth Day 2018, we’re raffling away (3) Earth Day Starter Kits to (3) lucky winners. To qualify, all you have to do is shop P500 worth of Wellness products from April 22 to 25, 2018. But what exactly is in these kits, and just how will they help you help our planet? Here’s a quick primer for you!
THE EARTH DAY STARTER KIT
1. Happy Island Candle Co. Magical Makeup Remover Towel Set: Eye Makeup Remover + Small Towel, P599
Not only does this pair of 100% polyester towels easily wipe away all traces of makeup (just add water!), it also keeps the entire process zero-waste. Simply rinse off the residue and use ‘em again (and again and again).
2. Sip PH Family Steel Straw Set, P350
Want to get the rest of your fam on that green living train, too? This set of 4 stainless steel straws is the perfect first step. Before you know it, you’ll all be waving away single-use plastic without thinking twice.
3. Minka Bamboo Toothbrush with Charcoal Bristles, P225
Fact: if you want to avoid bacteria, you should be getting a new toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Unfortunately, most of the ones you can find in stores are made of plastic. Our solution? Go for bamboo. They’re biodegradable, so you can keep your teeth and conscience squeaky-clean.
4. SAC MNL Liwa Mesh Cotton Bag in Wheat and Old Rose, P250 each (for a limited time only!)
Update your canvas tote collection by adding mesh bags into the mix. These are perfect for carrying fresh produce straight from the market or regular ole’ groceries. Bonus perk: they’re also making buzz as the summer accessory for stylish beach babes!
5. Frank Green SmartCup (8oz.), P1,450
We do love it when pretty things aren’t just pretty. Case in point: these Australian imports that make sustainability sexy. Spill-proof, compact, and easy to clean, Frank Green’s Smart Cups are made for the on-the-go gal who likes to keep her coffee hot. Made from BPA-free, non-toxic plastic, they’re stain- and odor-resistant, too. Seriously, coolest cup ever!
6. Ka Nami Pasador Regular Bamboo Charcoal Cloth Pad, P120, and Overnight/Heavy Bamboo Charcoal Cloth Pad, P150
If you’re a pad user looking for ways to minimize your monthly carbon footprint, reusable cloth pads are for you. After all, it wasn’t so long ago that our lolas used these during their cycles, right? As long as you wash them thoroughly, they’re perfectly sanitary—and you don’t have to throw anything out.
7. Anytime Menstrual Cup (Size 1) in Purple, P700
Alternatively, you could also take the menstrual cup route. It’s outside many people’s comfort zones, sure. But once you take that leap, you’ll find that it’s actually super comfortable! And between the money you’ll save and the waste you’ll stop generating, we can’t really see a downside. Did we mention a single menstrual cup can last you up to five years?!
So, which eco-friendly find are you most curious to try? We’re crossing our fingers for you to win ‘em all!
