The recent flooding brought about by typhoons Ulysses and Rolly has shown how important it is to care for our planet. While holding corporations and big businesses accountable would be the most logical, though tedious, way to address climate change, doing our part as individual consumers can still make a difference. These eco-friendly stores are walking the talk by helping survivors of recent calamities through whatever means they’re able to. 

Here’s how you can help: 

 

Bukid ni Bogs

Bukid ni Bogs is an online business that sells organic soaps. It prides itself on sustainable and regenerative practices while empowering its women and farmer partners. Monetary donations will be used to produce soap for sending to affected areas under the Office of the Vice President. Bukid ni Bogs will also be planting a tree for at least P1,500 worth of donations.  Donations will be accepted until Thursday, Nov. 19.
