“EARTH Network for a Sustainable Lifestyle”


Books on earth tales, organic plants, solar dryer, pico hydro, wireless bulletin board, LED bulbs, electric vehicle, and selected food supplements. What do they have in common?  


They are eco-products--products that are kind to the environment. They are produced, consumed or used, and disposed of in an environmentally sound and sustainable manner. Many of them may not be completely eco-friendly yet. But they are now growing in quality and quantity.  


The demand for eco-products is going up for many reasons. One is the increasing awareness of the disastrous impact of global warming, which arises mainly from the emission of greenhouse gases. As a result, more people are now practicing sustainable lifestyle that reduces emissions to the atmosphere.  


But the major motivation is economics. Many eco-products can save money for consumers. For example, the latest electric bulbs in the market, LED bulbs, can reduce the consumption of electricity while avoiding the problem of disposing of used incandescent bulbs with toxic mercury.  


In order to help develop the young market for eco-products in the Philippines, EARTH Institute Asia, Inc. has developed its latest program, EARTH Network for a Sustainable Lifestyle. a network of producers, sellers, and consumers of eco-products.
