Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

MANILA brand ECHO-store sus­tain­able life­style re­cently opened in up­scale Maria Luisa Road in Cebu City, along a new devel­op­ment called Streetscape.

The rich en­clave wel­comed the new nat­u­ral and or­ganic so­cial en­ter­prise, where the who’s who of Cebu gath­ered. They came to eat Spinach tor­tillas, or­ganic arugula with mush­rooms and even ba­nana heart burg­ers.

Jo­hann and Meyan Young, new par­ents to a four-month-old baby, and en­trepreneurs for some­time now de­cided to bring the green and nat­u­ral con­cept to Cebu’s hot mar­ket. “I had no doubts Cebu would catch on with the green trend,” Jo­hann says.

Jo­hann con­cocts the ready-to-eat food and freshly-made pasta sauces ac­cord­ing to ECHO­s­tore’s stan­dards.

“We have moth­ers like me who look for prod­ucts safe for ba­bies,” de­clares Meyan. “I have per­son­ally cho­sen the lines we now carry so moth­ers can have an eas­ier time choos­ing prod­ucts for our ba­bies, “she con­tin­ues. ECHO­s­tore car­ries many ar­ti­sanal brands which are SLS-free and chem­i­cal-free.

For the men and women who love cof­fee they also brought in the ad­vo­cacy house brands like Women and Cof­fee, sourced from women-led farm­ing com­mu­ni­ties from as far as Benguet and Sulu. They also carry ECHO­s­tore’s Hon­est herbs herbal teas from or­ganic farms in Palawan.

“We are so happy we chose to open ECHO­s­tore’s li­censed store in Cebu,” says Meyan. “Our lives re­volve around our lit­tle baby whose needs – from safe nat­u­ral food to safe nat­u­ral prod­ucts – we now carry” she con­tin­ues.

“It’s our mid­dle ground” says Jo­hann the car­ni­vore. “I used to eat only meats and Meyan used to be just veg­e­tar­ian,” he says. “Now we eat what we serve at ECHOcafe, and we have found a mid­dle ground with nat­u­ral or­ganic choices for sal­ads, pasta and even ‘silogs’,” Jo­hann proud­lyy says.y
