SM rolls out E-Waste Collection Program

Every year, the world produces more electronic waste (e-waste) than the last due to advancements in technology that shorten the average life spans of gadgets and electronics. According to the Global E-waste Monitor 2020 report, the world generated about 53.6 million metric tons (Mt) of e-waste in 2019, a 21-percent jump from 44.4 Mt in 2014. It is projected to increase to 74.7 Mt. by 2030. What makes e-waste worse compared to most other types of waste is that, if not correctly disposed of, it can release dangerous chemicals like lead, mercury, and lithium, which are toxic to the environment, most especially to humans. Exposure to these chemicals can lead to life-threatening complications such as poisoning, immune system disorders, and even cancer, to name a few. Hence, it is essential to dispose of e-waste responsibly and in an organized manner. Not only will this help ensure human safety and health, but it will also help minimize the negative impact of its disposal on the environment.

SM Supermalls marks milestone with the first-ever virtual ‘SuperKids Day’

SM Supermalls and its kiddie shoppers across the country recently made history with the celebration of the first-ever virtual SM SuperKids Day that was held at SM Supermalls’ official Facebook page.

On its fourth year, SuperKids Day continued the tradition of highlighting everything that Filipino children love at SM – shopping, eating, playing, and having fun – but this time, they enjoyed their “SM moments” with their families at the comforts of their homes.

“It’s been seven months since we last saw your smiles, heard your laughter, and felt your happiness while spending your fun SM moments with us,” said Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls senior vice president for marketing. “We know that you miss your favorite SM malls. And please know that we miss you too. But your health and safety is and forever will be our priority. We really look forward to see your sweet smiles again, SuperKids.”  
The Zoom-inspired #SMSuperKidsDay2020 featured kids from different parts of the country and SM Little Stars achievers namely, Marcus Cabais, Aleynah Redillas, Chunsa Jung, and Nhikzy Calma. Live online viewers were treated to a feel-good musicale that depicted the lives of Pinoy kids while in quarantine and how their favorite SM malls delight them in different AweSM ways.

In partnership with Toy Kingdom, The SM Store, SM Kids, SM Accessories, SM Stationery, SM Snack Exchange, Baby Company, SM Markets, SM Shopmag, and SM Cyberzone, #SMSuperKidsDay2020 is part of the month-long Kids’ Month celebration of SM malls nationwide.
Along with the virtual event, the #AweSMLearning Online Workshops is currently ongoing until October 31 where they can enjoy dancing, singing, and digital art workshops at the comforts of their home. Completing Kids’ Month is the #FAMtasticHalloweenWithSM and a fun Tiktok Kiddie Challenge where all kiddie TikTokers can participate.
