Going Green With Berde

Three years have passed, my youngest is now potty trained and it feels like it was just yesterday when I started using cloth diapers for him. I can't believe that in my own little way, I have been able to reduce waste by 70% throughout the years that he's been in diapers. 


I am deeply saddened on how we contribute to the global trash every day. So I decided that in order for my kids to at least enjoy the beautiful world we live in, I must contribute to make the baby steps in going green to help save Mother Earth. 


I started by reducing plastic waste by using reusable containers to buy fresh produce at the market. I used cloth diapers for my son, I used menstrual cups, cloth pads, eliminate the use of tissues,  slowly reduce the use of plastic at home. And last year, I was in the look of Earth-friendly hygiene products and I have been just so surprised to know that most of the products came with a hefty price. I bought a shampoo bar at a foreign store and without batting an eye, I paid for it no matter how expensive it was because I know, it will somehow reduce plastic waste. 


I am glad that there are local brands now that sells more Earth-friendly products at an affordable price. Much like the owner of Berde, she was also discouraged on how expensive the Earth-friendly products were being sold online. Her mission is to make these eco-friendly products accessible and affordable because she believes that going green shouldn't be expensive. She wants to get rid of the notion that living a sustainable lifestyle is only for those who can afford. She also wanted to tap those who are skeptical about switching to eco-friendly that they will not regret spending a fortune.


Berde has plenty of Earth-friendly products to choose from, and their bestselling is the one most of us use every day which are straws and bamboo toothbrush. They also collect old jars, broken mugs, and tin cans and later upcycles them into holders. They also have shampoo bars, reusable cotton rounds, produce bags and net market bags.

Berde, the brand means green and its logo means a destination or a goal. Together as a nation, we can take baby steps at a time to make this world a better place to live in especially for the future of our children.
