With the lack of bazaars and live events this holiday season, small local businesses are banding together through online platforms.
Karizza Engracia, co-founder of Mimi Clothing MNL
In 2018, twin sisters Karinna and Karizza Engracia started Mimi Clothing MNL by designing clothes made out of recycled fabrics. Faced with the operational and ethical challenges of promoting fashion during a pandemic, they teamed up with other brands to push sustainable lifestyle as a whole this December.
They curated the Evergreen Holiday Bundles to suit the different women in our lives, from sisters to "plantitas." Other participating brands include Sunnysix Active, Satori Revolution, Bare Essentials Manila, La Sangria Manila, Wall Knots, and Remake by Mimi.
In this episode, ethical entrepreneurs Karizza Engracia, Riah Lopez, and Janine Chiong teach us what "sustainable business" truly means.
