Eco-friendly bazaar shopping tip

Since bazaars are everywhere, let us not forget to be a responsible and environment-conscious individual. Most sellers/booths in bazaars use plastic bags when you shop, you can’t blame them because that’s the cheapest packaging they can come up with. The initiative to say NO TO PLASTIC should come to us, shoppers. I’m sure we all have lots of ecobags piled up in our homes, bring one when going to bazaars and just dump your items as you shop.

I brought my Healthy Options ecobag at the 10th World Bazaar Festival:

Bazaar season is here

When BER months enter the scene, most entrepreneurs are getting all excited because it’s the bazaar season once again. Its the time of the year when people are on a shopping and spending roll so that means more income for bazaaristas. I, for one, is an avid fan of bazaars, especially the World Bazaar Festival at the World Trade Center. It’s a big week-long bazaar with plenty of concessionaires, bazaar-goers flock to this bazaar every year to shop for gifts and personal items. Aside from the unique merchandise offered at bazaars, what I also consider when going to a bazaar is the organization, safety and crowd control inside the area. Things can get chaotic in there especially during weekends so some barricades were put up by the bazaar organizers to ensure the safety of shoppers and concessionaires.

Product spotlight: AnyLock Sealing Device

AnyLock Sealing device

One great find at my recent trip to the 8th World Bazaar Festival is the AnyLock Sealing Device, a fresh new product from Korea. At first glance, you think it can’t do anything because it’s just a plain colorful plastic rod. But this plain looking plastic rod is every housekeeper’s friend. AnyLock is a patented freshness sealing device that locks and seals any plastic bag. This can be used for open bags of chips to preserve its crunch, to seal freshness of vegetables in the fridge, to store leftovers and can also be used when packing your things when traveling. It’s airtight, watertight and odourless.

comes in different colors and sizes

The sealing device comes in a variety of sizes and colors fit for different plastic bags and pouches.
