There are many ways we could actively involve ourselves in environmental conservation; one is through sustainable living, a practical philosophy that seeks to reduce society's consumption of natural resources. In light of this, Tatler has sourced local brands that offer sustainable packaging for your food and other dining items.
Whether you're going out for work or just having a picnic, Econest PH can help you pack your food sustainably through Cassabag! These bio-bags are 100 per cent compostable and biodegrade after 105 days.
The products are soluble in hot water and are not harmful to living things when consumed. "The innovative technology of cassava bio bags surpasses the performance of regular paper bags and is certainly the sensible option compared to traditional plastics made from non-renewable resources and other plastics claiming to have “degradable” features," the brand said.
Econest is founded by its President and CEO Nikki Sevilla and her Managing Partner Angel Rodriguez who seek to lessen carbon footprint by providing sustainable products that are more accessible to the local market.
