Christmas is fast approaching! Are your gifts ready?
We usually cram our preparations especially in giving gifts – and it’s always a headache. Lucky for us, this year we have Lunhaw Bazaar which displays local eco products, artworks and crafts of local artists.
We can never go wrong here since our gifts will be environment-friendly and we get to support our local entrepreneurs and artists!
To give you an idea of what you can buy there, here are some the local businesses and artists participating in the bazaar. You better prepare your list of “to-buy” before going there right? 😉
Jagna Women’s Association
Cute plushies sewed by a women’s association of a fishing community in Jagna, Bohol will be displayed. These crafts are usually marine animals and are used to promote marine conservation. Take a look at these cool manta rays! Doesn’t this remind you of Moana’s grandma? 😀
Templos Handcrafted Soaps is based in Tagbilaran City which creates all-natural, eco-friendly, vegan, travel-safe and chemical-free skincare and haircare products. Aside from soaps, they have shampoo bars, hair oil and variety of lotions. I have been using their products for more than a year now. 😊
Plastic Free Bohol organization is joining the fun too. Most probably they will display merchandise that will help you live a plastic-free lifestyle. Looking forward to visiting their booth!
The Boholana Essentials is based in Tagbilaran City and creates eco-products to also help you to a plastic-free lifestyle. Their products range from shampoo bars, soaps, water bottles, bamboo toothbrushes and others. Definitely worth a visit! (Just to clarify, this is not my brand. 😅)
There will be an exhibit of artworks and artists will also sell some of their arts and crafts like stickers, prints and others.
