Jul 13, 2018
There are a lot of conflicting views on sustainability and zero waste nowadays, and knowing which one to believe can get a little tricky. So wouldn’t it be so much better if you could see and experience the different aspects of sustainable and zero-waste living in just one place?
Clear up your July 21 and 22 weekend: The Good Trade, a zero-waste and sustainability fair is setting up at Central Square in BGC to bring together a number of brands and activities that can help anyone get started on a greener lifestyle.
Some of the brands include Alpas Pet Accessories, Amber&Anne home linens and bags, and ethical fashion brands like Anthill Fabric Gallery, Candid Clothing, and Astella Philippines. Reusable tableware like tumblers, cups, and utensils from Frank Green, Cupping Initiative, and Sip PH, and cruelty-free products by Zero Basics will also be available. Ritual will be setting up refillable stations, while Humble Market is up for those interested in buying food in bulk.
Aside from various stores, repair stations and recycling partners will also be at the fair.
To learn more about sustainable living, talks and demos are also scheduled for the two days. Check out the schedule below:
