Based on what we see on the news and social media, we all know that our planet is not getting better. Thus, as much as we can, we should be mindful of the carbon footprints that we leave on Earth, and we can start by choosing products that support sustainability.

We know that going zero-waste is not an overnight journey. But in case you've fully committed yourself to taking care of our only home, here are six local shops where you that can help you get started on your sustainable lifestyle.

1. Finn

If you're looking for Instagram-worthy, flatlay-ready sustainable products, @finnthelabel is the way to go. They sell feminine bars, all-natural and cruelty-free lipsticks, homemade candles, and more lifestyle essentials. They have a resuable packaging that you can utilize as an everyday bag. Plus, you can use your empty containers to get refills instead of buying brand new ones.

Who would have known that caring for the environment can be this fun and stylish? It's never too late to look after our Mother Earth if we start now. Buying from small enterprises with a cause is a small step to a bigger and better future.
