Though making changes like bringing your shopping bag in the grocery, opting for tumblers, and using metal straws are huge steps toward a more sustainable lifestyle, these only solve small issues in plastic usage. We can't ignore the fact that a big amount of plastic use is in the products we buy for the home like cleaning detergents and personal care items. If we really want to make the switch to a zero-waste lifestyle, we should commit to reducing plastic in our homes as well. You might be wondering where you can get home products sans plastic packaging. We list down some of the retail brands that provide plastic-free alternatives for some of the essentials we use:

Ritual

Ritual is an establishment known to the Makati community for years because of the organic and locally made goods they offer. These days, they’re becoming more popular throughout Metro Manila because they now provide home products without the packaging.
