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.

BayaniJUAN: Cebu Pacific provides airlift support for COVID-19 response efforts


Over the past several years, the need for humanitarian aid has dramatically increased on the back of major natural disasters, conflict or biohazards such as the spread of the Novel Coronavirus. Aviation plays a critical role in the fast and reliable movement of humanitarian assistance such as food and medical supplies, especially when time is of the essence.

Amidst travel restrictions that came with the imposition of Community Quarantine across Luzon and many other provinces across the Philippines, Cebu Pacific (CEB) has continued to operate all-cargo flights to ensure that food, medicines and vital supplies are transported from one island to another across the archipelago. Throughout the quarantine period, Cebu Pacific has been in constant coordination with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) and other government agencies for cargo transport—especially those that are intended for humanitarian aid.
So far, CEB has operated over 40 cargo flights between Manila, Cebu, General Santos, Cagayan de Oro, Tacloban, Iloilo, and Davao using its fleet of Airbus jets and ATR turbo-prop aircraft. It is the only carrier in the Philippines with a dedicated ATR Freighter, capable of carrying as much as seven tons of cargo in one uplift.

CEB’s cargo services include airlift support for local governments, humanitarian and aid organizations as well as other entities who are sending much-needed Personal Protective Equipment and medical supplies to help health workers and front liners in the provinces. To date, CEB has provided airlift support for humanitarian aid sent through Vice President Leni Robredo’s Angat Buhay Program, the Department of Health, the Philippine Red Cross, the Philippine Army and the TOWNS Foundation, among others.
