What if people of different backgrounds could come together for a fun and laid-back day with a mindful exchange of goods and ideas?

 

That is MUNI's aim with MUNI Market Day, happening on June 1,  9 a.m., at The Grove by Rockwell at C5, Pasig.

 

MUNI Market Day aims to educate consumers on ways to shop, eat, and live more mindfully, and give them an opportunity to get to know the makers and the stories behind local and/or eco-friendlier products through a one-day fair integrating workshops and conversations on upcycled crafting, healthy eating and cause-driven business.

 

As a cause-oriented community of entrepreneurs, writers, designers, artists, educators, and advocates, whose thrust it is to share ideas on mindful living, the idea of MUNI is that one way by which we can live mindfully is by practicing conscious consumption-being more aware of the impact of our buying behavior. By choosing products that are locally made or eco-friendly, we choose to put our pesos on products/businesses that share our values of maximizing impact in our community while minimizing impact on the planet.

 

This will be a whole day of learning and networking with the MUNI community, and finding ways to give back in your own way.

 

Slots are limited. Pre-registration for specific activities is required. See more activity details and register here.
