Bookworms save the date as the biggest book fair in Manila is back once again!

MUNI Meetups are something to look forward to. It isn’t only a venue where you’d get a chance meet new people with a passion for saving and protecting the Earth but it’s also a place where you can learn more about sustainable living and a waste-free life. This September, aside from a pop-up shopping event, they’re cooking up something that will teach guests how to celebrate events in a sustainable way.
The aftermath of the recent habagat was a slap in the face for Filipinos. Manila Bay was caked with tons of trash and although there was an initial cleanup done, it still wasn’t enough to remove all the trash that stretched on the shore. The International Coastal Cleanup is the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways. Join and help the fight against ocean trash. Click here for details.
Juan Earth aims to protect and preserve the Earth ‘Juan’ step at a time. They want to educate and empower people to create a healthier and more sustainable world and build a neighborhood of like-minded people. You can also adopt seedlings, fur babies, pawikans, and even clams at the event!
