A small business owner went viral after sharing on TikTok her experience with high-profile celebrity Nadine Lustre, in which the actress messaged her to inquire about purchasing one of her products.
According to Danica Gonzaga, owner of eco-friendly small business ‘A to Zero Waste’, Lustre found her shop through Lauren, James Reid’s sister, who spoke highly of their kitchen tools. The actress then asked how to purchase Danica’s products.

Gonzaga expressed her amazement at how Lustre, one of the country’s most sought-after celebrities, helps small businesses by actually purchasing from them and promoting them on social media. Danica said she wanted to give the products to the actress for free, but Nadine was hesitant to accept the offer because she wanted to support the business.
@allaboutdanica❤️ Hi Ms. @nadinelustre ☀️ #fyp #ecofriendly #smallshop #businessowner #foryou #nadinelustre #supportsmall♬ original sound – Danica Catalig-Gonzaga
When Lustre received the products from Gonzaga, she posted it to her Instagram story to promote ‘A to Zero Waste’.
There really was no need for Lustre to post and tag the shop on her Instagram page, but she did so anyway–which led to the business getting a lot of support and page follows from her fans.
Avid fans of Nadine Lustre made a thread on Twitter, calling on Filipino influencers to support small businesses by buying from them instead of asking for free products.

She dm’ed the shop to buy the products, but the owner offered her the items for free.
Look at how this bub responded and continuously supported the shop after 🥺

Jusko! Mahiya naman yung ibang Pinoy “influencers” kay Nadine Lustre! Saw a tiktok by a small business owner sharing her story that Nadine reached out and asked HOW TO PURCHASE. Didnt ask for free stuff. She even pushed na purchase talaga coz owner wanted to give it for free.
