Sustainable flip-flops and “a happy meal”

Shopping with a conscience. Havaianas Eco, made of rubber scraps, leaves me happy. The planet too:) They come in pink, minty green and baby blue. The jelly straps add freshness to the design. Available at Red Dot.

Eating with a conscience. Here’s the sustainable burger — homemade burger by Lynne. We get to reduce our plastic footprint:)

Restful Harmony…

Tucked in the outskirts of Vigan is a relaxing spot named Hidden Garden. Green thumbs as well as ordinary mortals like me and Alexa will love the cool and lovely outdoor rooms created by Mr. and Mrs. Francis Flores.

They craft clay pots and garden ornaments and grow and sell plants that are sure to make outdoor and indoor spaces in true contact with nature.
