26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image,
to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea,
the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth,
and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
- Genesis 1:26 NLT
We are by commanded by God the Father, Our creator, to be stewards of His creations. We are not just caretakers who will just look over it but we are called to be stewards and that means we are expected to manage them as well.
I am sure everyone already watched this video and I couldn’t watch ‘til the end without twitching my eyes. This is a good video if you want your kids to learn how to take care of the environment and start consciousness on what is really happening, however, this is also the video which I pray not to see or even my ‘future’ kids to see live. I must confess, I am one of those who would look for disposable utensils just because I was lazy on washing them but this video made me conscious to make a sound decision to make a choice to not use disposables ‘if given a chance’. This video is more than enough to wake me up and start doing something about it. This video on viral, made a lot of people, especially business savvy ones, to think about on how they could ride the wave of demand by producing the supply, however, this is something I am watchful for. Other countries and companies all over the world already started with the advocacy to Save the Sea Seas, Save the Sea Turtles, and even launch the advocacy of having the Last Straw; I am proud that the Philippines already started to adopt something that can really contribute to the environment and other creations. Ever since numerous stainless straws came out of the market and started to “sell”. Since I am not into joining any bandwagon, I do not want to be a customer of their products but as their co-advocate.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him. - Psalm 24:1 NLT
Honestly, I was looking for something that could help me start the advocacy with and Sip.ph is a startup brand which does not just carry stainless straws but also bamboo utensils.
I had to research and it is actually all over the web that bamboo utensils are more environmental-friendly than stainless ones! According to Sip.ph, studies have shown that reusables will almost always trump over disposables, simply because it creates a circular economy and whatever carbon footprint was emitted is distributed over the many times that you used it! On the short-term, It means that it would be one less plastic straw that could potentially end up in the belly of a precious sea creature, and potentially cause its death. On top of this, you will help forward the movement for a society that refuses single-use!
This is a Burrito Set. It is made of sustainably produced bamboo, this set contains several utensils all snuggled up in your canvas Sip Burrito wrap. Bring all your reusables in one convenient burrito!
The set includes the following items:
- 19 cm bamboo spoon
- 19 cm bamboo fork
- 19 cm bamboo knife
- 19 cm bamboo chopsticks
- Classic Straw (21.6 cm length, 6 mm diameter)
- Milk Tea Straw (21.6 cm length, 12 mm
- Milk Tea Brush
- Burrito Wrap (26 x 23 cm flat; 5 cm diameter rolled)
Surprisingly, their brand philosophy is plain and simple:
With the short temporality of human life, we as humans only borrow this world and as such should share in being stewards of creation, by taking care and preserving the Earth and being good to other people around us.Sip.ph
They also partnered with Save Philippine Seas and I was amazed by how they are serious about their advocacy. I would personally want to thank Sip.ph for this and it reminds me to make conscious decision to use this reusable cutlery rather than settling with disposables. I hope that this advocacy of saving the Earth and fellow creations would spread faster than the KPOP fever in the country and I pray that this won’t be a fad but a way of lifestyle.
Also, I love how they placed all the logos in piece included in the set!
PS: I think calling their set sleeve as ‘burrito’ is too witty not to
Come and join me in my advocacy in saving the Earth and fellow creations one burrito at a time. Let’s become the stewards in every way we can that would ultimately glorify our creator, God the Father!
