Start Your 2021 for the Environment with SM Trash-to-Cash

Image
This New Year is the perfect time to turn the trash lying around your home into cash! The holiday season is the busiest time of the year for Filipinos. It is also a period wherein trash can accumulate easily as a result of various activities linked to the season’s celebrations. Knowing this, SM is encouraging Filipinos to observe responsible solid waste management as they welcome 2021 via the Trash-to-Cash recycling program. SM City Puerto Princesa calls for nearby communities to bring in their plastic bottles, scrap paper, cardboard, and cookware at the recycling market along Lacao Street, Bgy. San Miguel happening this January 8-9 from 10 AM to 2 PM. Trash-to-Cash is SM’s long-running environmental initiative aimed at educating the community to recycle, dispose of their trash properly, and earn in the process. Launched in 2007, the program is part of the company’s efforts in compliance with Republic Act No. 9003, also known as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Program.

Silent Film Festival now in SM Aura

Now on its 13th year, the International Silent Film Festival (ISSF) Manila happened last August 30 to September 1, 2019, at its new home at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City. ISSF is one of the most revered film festivals in Metro Manila as it is not only free, it features live performances of local and foreign bands of different genres as musical accompaniment.
One of the featured films is the classic by Kenji Mizoguchi, The Downfall of Osen (1935). It is about a servant girl who did everything to finance the education of a man he loves. The live musical score was served by Kaduma ni Karol, a band from Mindanao that fuses indigenous sounds with contemporary music.
Other films are Native Life in the Philippines (1913) with live music from Munimuni, Es Mi Hombre (He’s My Man) (1926) with music from Tarsius, L’Onestà del Peccato (The Wife He Neglected) (1918) with music from Stef&No and the Pocket Orchestra, Von Morgen Bis Mitternachts (From Morn to Midnight) (1920) with music from Anima Tierra and finally Kalif Storch (1924) with music from Tanya Markova.
