Our mother and I went to Healthy Options yesterday. It used to sell mostly vitamin supplements, gradually branching out into healthier, well, options for food, beauty products, personal hygiene, etc. The prices are much, much higher than anything from regular supermarkets, but the occasional visit there won’t hurt. I even got myself some free-range chicken broth.
What really pleased me though was the presence of reusable bags. The sign on top of the shelves holding the bags promised that, unlike other stores, there’s no need to claim any extra points or make special purchases just to be able to use the bags, so that really makes it easier for people to use them. The bags cost P50 (presently $1.06) each.
