Add These Two Eco Stores To Your Go-To Green Shops List

Get your essentials at Eco Switch Shop and Balay Qubo!

It’s a daily, conscious choice when you live the green lifestyle. Good thing there are practical options today, and the metro (and the world wide web!) is never outstocked of eco-friendly everyday essentials. Suddenly, joining the green movement is easier, faster, and more convenient, too—a better push to encourage individuals to embrace this way of life.

To equip us in being a green warrior, we scour physical and online shops for the best eco finds. And in our search for products to patronize, we found two stores where you can get the basics for your home. Slide into Eco Switch Shop’s DMs for zero-waste cleaning tools, or drop by Balay Qubo’s store for a complete grocery shopping experience. Read on!

Eco Switch Shop

Do you find yourself in awe of the beautifully lined coconut trees that grow abundantly in Southern Luzon? You’ll be more amazed by Eco Switch Shop’s zero-waste project involving the tree of life. The classic local bunot has found its sibling counterparts with coco coir bristles as their primary product. The shop carries bottle brushes, dish non-sponges, infinity scrubbers, toilet brushes, and scourers. Raw materials are sourced in Quezon Province and made in Batangas, supporting local makers while minimizing plastic pollution through a sustainable alternative, too! Everything is plastic-free, compostable, and sustainable. The best part? The stuff is durable and can last you a long time, too!

Balay Qubo

Online shop The Bamboo Company’s flagship store, Balay Qubo, is your (eco)friendly neighborhood place for all things green. Do your weekend groceries here and find items for the home, personal hygiene, travel, and even plants! They call themselves, “The Local Home of Goods that do Good,” and for a reason—once you browse through local brands they house inside the store, everything is in line with their goal of sustainability, zero-waste, and vegan living. You’ll love their bamboo and coconut product lines (our picks: the soap dispenser, the Bambrew, and kitchen utensils), but take delight in other offerings like cleaning suds, home scents, and healthy food options!

Find Balay Qubo at 721 JP Rizal St., Lamuan, Marikina City or shop their goods at
