SHIFT TO GREEN LIVING
We all live in a watershed. Whether we like it or not, our lifestyle choices affect nature and the communities we live in, both now and in the long run.
Here are the many ways we can be more environment-friendly. Give one a try and take those small steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle:
Buy local, go organic!
Buy fruits, vegetables and other organic products from local farmers who continue with indigenous, chemical-free farming amidst the tough market competition with big businesses. They are available Thursdays and Fridays at Rizal Park! You can also contact them directly for orders.
Check the list of organic farmers here.
Spend more time outdoors
Bring your loved ones to any of Davao’s public parks, study under a tree, teach a child to ride a bike, or take your friends to bird watching in Shrine Hills. Try to skip the malls, the fast food chains and all the wasteful plastic packaging in these places. Prepare your own food and enjoy a picnic in the green spaces of our city.

Aim for zero waste!
Start small, go for low (instead of all-out zero) waste! Be conscious of the waste you produce. Properly dispose or recycle your waste products. Buy in bulk if you can. Skip the plastics and buy reusable and environment-friendly products. If you can’t avoid those single-use plastics due to budget constraints, hand them over for upcycling to our Lunhaw Awardees who create new use for waste products that would most likely end up in our sanitary landfill.
