Earth day & Human Nature

Human Nature Balik Bote Bigay Buhay

Geez, it almost slipped into my mind that yesterday was Earth day! This reminds me of Human Nature’s Balik Bote, Bigay Buhay program. For those of you who haven’t heard about Human Nature yet, you can check this previous post dedicated to it.

For those of you who aren’t too sure about what to do with recyclable bottles and are worried with the bottle pile-up, feel free to bring your empty bottles to the Human Nature head office located along Commonwealth or to any of the Human Nature branches all over the country where all the bottles returned will be sold to help support nearby GK communities. This is all part of its Balik Bote, Bigay Buhay program.

In addition, you can also participate on their Bring Your Own Bag Wednesdays. When shopping, simply bring your reusable bag in lieu of utilising plastic bags at the counter. This can save you the trouble of throwing another trash. It can also help reduce land pollution in the long run, as plastics take some time to decompose completely.

Human Nature Cares.

Butterfly Beauty Pouch - Human Nature

The first time I’ve heard about Human Nature was from a former colleague of mine who apparently knew someone who sells them. I, being the curious cat as always, tried googling for a website. Gladly, they have one. 🙂 As soon as I found out that they’re one of the local organic products available in the market, I became much more interested.

Only recently, I’ve become more concerned about the environment that I’d rather prefer owning all-natural, organic products–from food and dietary supplements to bug sprays and cleaning agents. I usually frequent Healthy Options in search for these things. However, I couldn’t afford to do groceries for organic meat and veggies on a regular basis nor grab organic cleaning agents or skincare products randomly, since they all tend to be really expensive. I’m so glad that EchoStore came to life as it put up its branches in Podium and Serendra, where can I easily purchase a local organic product without worrying about costing an arm and a leg. Human Nature is one of them. 🙂

There’s always a thought, or rather a stigma, that organic products carry a hefty price tag. That’s why, it never fails to surprise me that local organic products such as Human Nature are super affordable! But, being affordable doesn’t mean being “substandard”, as Human Nature proudly belts BFAD accreditation, amongst others.

Even my mom, who is not really into expensive brands (except if I give her one :P), has started hoarding their products that I lost track already as to how many she possesses!

That’s why I’m really glad and honoured to be invited by them last week, as I got to know the brand up-close and personal. 🙂 I really tried catching up, but unfortunately the presentation was halfway done when I arrived. 🙁 But, thank God, coz I got all the information I need in a CD! 😀
