Filipinos can now shop more intentionally, for sustainable and locally-sourced products through SM Green Finds–a program designed to make green living easier and more accessible.
In making small decisions for the home, one can opt for linens made of bamboo which is sustainably sourced and utilizes less water in the production process. In SM Store, shoppers will have access to handcrafted products by artisans and social enterprises made from locally sourced materials like rattan, bamboo, and abaca.
For basic home lighting needs, consumers can shift to LED bulbs which use 85 percent less electricity than traditional light bulbs. These LED bulbs not only help reduce energy consumption but also produce less heat, making homes more comfortable during the hot summer months. When it comes to basic cleaning solutions, one can go for eco-friendly and natural cleaners, which are safe for use without compromising the environment.
Water conservation is also crucial, especially during the summer season. There are water-saving bathroom fixtures that use aerators to control the stream of water, reducing splashing, and minimizing water wastage. These fixtures help reduce water consumption, making it a win-win for both the consumers and the environment.
For those who are building a green wardrobe, shoppers can choose from a selection of sustainably made and produced denim. SM Fashion also carries a wide variety of eco-friendly footwear. Shoppers will have options from sustainably sourced fabrics that are neither dyed or bleached, to materials that are made from organic cotton.
Finally, plantitos and plantitas looking to grow their urban gardens this summer will find a wide array of natural-growing media that utilize by-products like coconut shells and hulls found in local farms and mountainsides of the Philippines. These are eco-friendly alternatives to conventional growing media.
By incorporating these Green Finds in daily routines, green living is made easy and accessible. Promoting Green Living under the SM Green Movement Campaign, SM Green Finds makes green living easy for its customers by promoting products that are eco-friendly, made from natural and local ingredients, and support local communities.
