The Living Library - An Ethnic grocer

An educational zero-waste store that brings people back to the gifts and magic of plants. We value flowering awareness in the minds and bodies of this generation - for the generations to come.. and we value using our country’s natural resources to heal and empower our people.

To encourage sustainable living as an island, the library opts to source locally-only and encourages others to discover the biodiversity that is on their own island, while providing package-free bulk solutions to meet daily basic needs - from medicinal plants, whole foods, natural home cleaning to intuitive and native gardening.

More than a store, it is a project set towards establishing a permanent space for spreading mindfulness and awareness in our actions. 10% of proceeds will go to supporting other sustainability projects in the Philippines.
