|Binhi Mindful sustainable market|
Lately in Puerto Princesa, they have teamed up with Rurungan Sunday Market at their compound off Abanico road. They also had a sustainable market every first Sunday of each month.
Rurungan sa Tubod Foundation formed in 1999 as a livelihood project for local community weavers to continue the traditional way of making pineapple fiber cloth. They weave the cloth called tepiña on-premise on native wooden looms to make beautiful fine shawls and other clothing items. The founder, Czarina Lim, raised her children among them, and now that they are grown up, have taken the concept of a sustainable crafts a few steps further by bringing all types of local and sustainable products to their compound, along with the besutifully woven Rurungan tepiña cloth wares.

With a lot of space on the compound, it looks like they decided to collaborate with Binhi Mindful market sustainable vendors. Now it seems the two siblings, Rosal and Pablo Lim, can concentrate on running their own enterprises while Binhi Mindful Market folks gather up the vendors which they are very good at and were doing anyway at other spaces. It is very nice to see people working for the same goals to help the planet, cooperate and not compete. I hope more people find out about it and switch to sustainable and local products and produce as much as they can.
It is a very relaxing space situated beneath the tall trees.
