The Luminary advocacy: Zero waste living

Climate change has been a pressing problem of the world. One of the biggest contributors to this problem has been plastic usage. For so long, we've been encouraged to recycle to reduce our waste. However, recycling is just one way to advocate for Mother Earth. We should also look into reusing. 

That's why I'm more than happy to support the Luminary, a zero waste store that opened a few months ago in our neighborhood.

The store carries a lot of products that can be bought and refilled! You'd also pay less when you bring your own container. They highly recommend that you do! My mom recently one vouchers from our barangay for this store. I was more than happy to come with her for a visit so she could see for herself Luminary's offerings. 

You can also check it out for yourself since I took photos!

Kitchen and Baking Needs

For your cooking and food condiment needs, Luminary sells soy sauce, vinegar, palm oil and coconut oil. They also have turmeric powder, garlic and onion powder as well as herbs such as dried rosemary leaves just to mention a few. 


Love to bake? Check out their selection of refined white sugar, brown sugar and all purpose flour. If you need toppings for your baked goods, they even carry chocolate droplets.

The Luminary also sells different types of hulled rice grains. Again, just shop with your own container to help reduce waste!

Need dishwashing liquid for your dishes or fabric conditioner for your laundry? 1 liter purchase will only cost you Php80 provided you bring your own bottle!

When you support Luminary store, you're not only supporting a local small business. You are also helping to save the only planet we live on. Isn't that amazing?
