Muni on this:
What if we could create an event that inspired conscious consumption?
Conscious consumption may not be a term everyone is familiar with yet, but in a nutshell, it’s when people are mindful of the impact of their consumption on the planet and their surrounding community. Whoa. Sounds heavy? Let me break it down for you so you can clearly see the benefits and why it makes sense to live by.
First of all, it starts with people re-evaluating what is truly essential in their lives, and what is needless clutter. It makes consumers reconsider: Do I really need this in my life? Can I purchase this second-hand? If I need to buy something brand new, whom does it help, how sustainable is the production of the product, and how do I dispose of it when I’m done with it?
When we ask ourselves these questions before we consume, it allows us to live our lives more simply, do more with less, save money and minimize our carbon footprint! Conscious consumers then find themselves supporting more organic produce, and local / independent businesses and visiting more garage sales, flea markets or second-hand shops.
MUNI POP-UP SHOP EVENT
It is with this idea that we decided to put together Muni Pop-Up Shop, an event that gathers together a few creative individuals selling pre-loved items, and brands / companies offering locally-made / eco-friendly gift options for the more conscious consumer, while building our community of Cultural Creatives. In other words, Muni Pop-Up Shop allows us to shop for unique stuff with minimal guilt, while making new friends!
Muni Pop-Up Shop will be held on December 8, 2012, 11am-6pm at Moonleaf Tea Shop, Maginhawa Street, Teacher’s Village, Quezon City.
See you there! : )
