Reimagining Local Fashion at MUNI Market 2017

No Comments

#MUNIonThis: According to the documentary True Cost, the fashion industry is the world’s second-largest polluter — right behind the oil industry, and 25% of chemicals produced worldwide are used for textiles, and the industry is often noted as the 2nd largest polluter of clean water – after agriculture,” according to the Danish Fashion Institute.

Furthermore, according to the EPA, with much credit to fast fashion brands, Americans discard roughly 13 million tons of textiles a year, with only 15% of that reclaimed for recycling. This means that more than 11 million tons of textiles are dumped into landfills across the country each year. Once those textiles are in landfills, they decompose and release methane. Moreover, dyes and other chemicals can leach into the soil, contaminating surface and groundwater, further harming human and wildlife. (more…)

Learning Events at MUNI Market 2017 on April 8-9

No Comments

Ever since the first MUNI Market in 2014, and even when the idea for the event first came to mind in 2012, it was always the goal to be an enriching experience to learn and network with a diverse, multi-disciplinary community, united by a collective goal to creatively and pro-actively work towards building a healthier, more inclusive, more sustainable world.

For MUNI Market 2017, we’ve worked especially hard to round up a esteemed lineup of speakers and panelists, representing various sectors, industries, and generations, for a series of MUNI Meetups and workshops to spark conversation and action on the following topics:

  • Reimagining Local Fashion (April 8, 11:00AM-12:30PM)
  • Communicating Your Cause (April 8, 1:30-3:00PM)
  • Beating Manila Traffic (April 8, 4:00-5:30PM)
  • Feeding the Food Revolution (April 9, 1:00-2:30PM)
  • Responsible Travel (April 9, 3:30-5:00PM)

Finding & Sharing Your Authentic Story: August 2016 Meetup Recap

No Comments

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking back.”
– Steve Jobs

Oftentimes, our stories aren’t so clear to us from the get-go, until we go out there and actually start doing stuff. It’s then that we can really see what patterns unfolded in our lives, what monumental shifts happened, how we changed and grew, and what new chapters we now want to write moving forward.


It’s all about creating connection. It allows us to better understand our own journey, while helping others join our journey too.

Realizing your story also helps you solidify your own purpose and motivation while simultaneously drawing in the right kind of people who will support you in your endeavor, whether as your team, collaborators, or customers.

But how do we really find this story that we wish to share? What is the best way to tell it? And how do we get the right people to listen and be moved to action? This is what we wanted to dive into at the MUNI Meetup on Storytelling last August 3, 2016.
