How Do You Live Sustainably? | BabyFlo Cottonbuds Are Now Eco-Friendly

Saturday, March 18, 2023

Living sustainably can be a long topic of conversation, but to me, I just try what I can and in my own small ways. Aside from being a vegetarian for more than a decade now (reducing carbon footprints), I also support makeup and skincare brands that are proud to be cruelty-free. What are your steps in living a more sustainable life?

By the way, did you know that Babyflo is now eco-friendly from its materials down to the packaging? They are giving me more reasons to support their products. I hope more brands will follow. Sharing happenings during the product launch last week at the Happy Garden Cafe in Makati.

Babyflo, a trusted brand under Philusa Corporation, strengthens its commitment to giving the best care for our daily hygiene needs while caring for the environment with the recent launch of its new line of eco-friendly cotton buds.

Philusa has long been a key advocate for sustainability, with the primary vision of delivering greener alternatives for many of their iconic brands such as Babyflo and Cleene, where they have implemented biodegradable, recyclable, and other sustainable options for their products as well as campaigns calling for effective actions for the environment.

According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the Philippines is losing approximately 52,000 trees per day. Every year, 47,000 hectares of forest, an area roughly three times the size of Quezon City, is destroyed by logging, slash-and-burn farming, and land conversion. Recognizing the serious environmental issues the country is currently experiencing, Filipino consumers are becoming ‘reuse revolutionaries’, which means that they are more aware of the disastrous impacts of waste in our landfills and the environment. Hence, consumers are now keen on making a difference and ensuring that they are having a positive impact on the planet we live in.

One of the ways consumers can live a greener lifestyle is by looking at the products we use on a regular basis and switching to a more eco-friendly option. Babyflo is here to make living a sustainable lifestyle easier by giving us an earth friendly choice of cotton buds – Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-friendly, the first Earth-minded cotton buds in the market made of 100% pure cotton tips, unbleached paper stems that come from responsibly managed forests, and biodegradable packaging so families can make their personal care routine greener.

The Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-friendly, the first Earth-minded cotton buds in the market, is available in 200 and 400 boxes

These buds are made of 100% pure cotton tips, unbleached paper stems that come from responsibly managed forests, and biodegradable packaging 

“The journey toward our goal starts with a single step. Through this product, Babyflo aims to be every Filipino’s buddy towards an eco-friendlier lifestyle,” remarked Mr. Neogin Evangelista, Philusa Corporation President and General Manager. “Philusa being a homegrown Filipino brand, has always been at the forefront of taking small steps and sometimes even big leaps towards a greener Philippines.”    

Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-Friendly sources its paper from managed forests thereby ensuring that every tree that is used to make the product is replaced.

“One thing that prevents us from living a more sustainable lifestyle is the lack of eco-friendly options. Now that this product is out and available, we hope that it could encourage more people to choose a greener lifestyle and inspire them to be more mindful of their everyday choices,” said Jacquiline Pe, Brand Manager of Babyflo Cotton buds.

Aside from personal hygiene, Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-Friendly can be used for a variety of tasks, such as removal or application of cosmetic products, application of medicine on injuries / wounds, and removing smudged nail polish, to name a few. The unbleached paper stems are sturdy, and the 100% pure cotton tips are also durable, which makes them ideal for different uses.
