As we grow older and become more aware of our actions, we often take the time to think about the consequence of our actions. Especially since Covid-19, most of us have started ordering in more or having more food to go, which means the use of single-use plastic has unfortunately gone up (unless you’ve been bringing your own containers which is great!).
If you’re looking to do some good while shopping, whether it means supporting businesses that gives back to the community or buying products that are environmentally friendly, we’ve rounded up a list of shops that you can start shopping at.
If you're looking for a gift for a loved one, these four shops are committed to helping communities or the environment. When you use Atome at checkout, you split the bill into three equal parts and can pay later for the things you love today.
Mori was founded by two women who shared a common dream to reduce poverty through fair employment and product value creation and innovation. They joined hands to work together with youths, mothers and volunteers to increase demand and work for mothers in the Philippines to help provide for their family. This way, they can continue to take care of the children while at home. Mori helps to train mums to sew the products with good quality, and they pay them per piece. Through this they are able to cover living expenses and save up for college for their children. Shop on mori for beautiful handcrafted products, you know you won’t regret it!
