Time to be Green Minded: Say Goodbye to Plastic Bags for Mother Earth

Time to be Green Minded: Say Goodbye to Plastic Bags for Mother Earth

We love to shop. And why won’t we? Shopping lifts our moods and it fulfills our personal needs. But what we often forget is that every time we walk out of a store, we don't just carry the shoes, clothes, or accessories we just bought. More often than not, we also carry something that could be harmful to the planet: plastic bags.

We’ve known from documentaries and articles online that plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues for many years already. Plastic wastes are the fastest-growing contributors to pollution, altering natural habitats and reducing our ecosystem’s ability to adapt to climate change. And if we don't become mindful of the effects of the plastic bags we use and discard so easily, the harm caused by our non-biodegradable waste will be even harder to reverse.

Luckily, better and greener alternatives like Cassabags by EcoNest Philippines, a Philippine-based sustainable packaging solutions provider, are available for us to use. As its name suggests, Cassabags are biodegradable bags made from cassava. These eco-friendly bags can be melted in hot water and is 100% safe for microorganisms, making them ideal substitutes to plastic bags when we shop.

With this, Res|Toe|Run joins EcoNest Philippines in their Net Zero by 2050 campaign, which calls for pledges to quit plastic usage for good. Environmentally-conscious Res|Toe|Run customers like you are highly encouraged to join the movement and take the pledge to quit plastic by signing up directly at EcoNest’s website.


You can also donate plastics to the following Res|Toe|Run stores:
1. Festival Mall
2. Alabang Town Center
3. Robinsons Magnolia
4. Uptown BGC
5. Fishermall
6. Ayala Malls Manila Bay
7. Robinsons Place Ermita
8. Robinsons Place Galleria
9. Robinsons Place Las Piñas
10.Fairview Terraces
11. Ayala Malls Nuvali

Your plastic donations will go to The Plastic Flamingo, a for-profit social enterprise that upcycles plastic waste to tackle marine pollution. More than two million tons of plastics are produced in the Philippines alone. If we don’t quit plastic now, there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish by 2050. It will find its way in our waterways and forests, the food we eat, and even the air we breathe.

This is why Res|Toe|Run embarked on a mission to fight the climate problem by encouraging footwear enthusiasts to take steps towards a greener lifestyle. Through our Greens Selection, you can wear sustainable shoes and avail of shoe care solutions from brands with planet-saving advocacies, and satisfy your craving for a better planet. We all have a part to play to protect the planet. Let’s start by ditching plastics and switching to eco-friendly alternatives–from the bags we use, to the shoes we wear. Because sometimes, the smallest sustainable choices make the biggest impact.

Drop by a Res|Toe|Run store and take a pledge to quit plastic today!
