Learning Events at MUNI Market 2017 on April 8-9

No Comments

fEver 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)
  • Zero Waste Living (April 9, 6:00-7:30PM)

#HowIFly Beyond Single-Serve Tourism: Environmentally and Culturally Mindful Travel

No Comments

“Everywhere I travel, tiny life. Single-serving sugar, single-serving cream, single pat of butter. The microwave Cordon Bleu hobby kit. Shampoo-conditioner combos, sample-packaged mouthwash, tiny bars of soap. The people I meet on each flight? They’re single-serving friends,” said the Narrator in cult movie Fight Club.

When we travel many of us tend to think single-mindedly about the sights we ought to go to, the things we ought to see, eat or do, the social media posts we ought to make, but oftentimes, this socially developed travel habit takes away from us appreciating a place as it is, and experiencing things as they come.

The beauty of travel lies in serendipity of chance encounters, having more meaningful interactions with those we meet, and developing deeper solidarity with locals to retain what is good and beautiful in their land, sea and culture. (more…)

Cultivating Habits for Mindful Living at MUNI Market 2016

No Comments

#MUNIonThis: Have you ever wanted to make more positive changes in your life but just didn’t know where to start, didn’t have compelling enough reasons to commit to change (yet), or didn’t know who to ask?

Depending on where we are in our lives, or what our priorities may be, the pursuit of a more mindful life may begin in one area, whether in your diet, your style, or other otherwise unnoticed habits in our lifestyle.

Whatever your initial reasons are for exploring more mindful lifestyle choices, we’ve made sure that there’s something for everyone to see and discover at the MUNI Market to prove that these changes are beneficial, admirable, and relatively easy, especially when armed with the right information.

What To Expect From MUNI Market 2016 on May 21 at Nuvali

No Comments

When we first started the MUNI Market, our goal was to keep growing the community, and continue bringing our message of mindful living to more people around the metro, the country, and the world. And so, this coming May 21, we’re conducting a happy experiment with the first ever MUNI Market in Nuvali!

We are bringing our existing community of conscious, purpose-driven merchants and supporters to a new and vibrant location in the south of the metro, while also discovering and welcoming new folks from the south into our community as well.


Now on its 5th run, the only MUNI Market in 2016 will be popping up at Solenad 3 in Nuvali with our merry band of mindful merchants selling healthy, local and eco-friendly products from food, home to fashion items, some educational workshops and demos, and some musician friends setting the vibe for a fun and relaxed atmosphere, true to MUNI Market fashion.
