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.

As the City Health issues Dengue alert Get P10K Dengue Insurance for only P300 at The SM Store

The City Health Office (CHO) recently reminded the public about the possible increase in Dengue cases during the present wet season.

And just in case, it is better to be practical and insured. For only P300, you could already secure a lump sum cash of P10,000 if you get diagnosed with Dengue, either outpatient or hospitalized.

This MediCash Dengue Insurance by Pioneer is available at the SM Store Customer Service, valid after 15 days of waiting period up to one (1) year.

Once insured, you still get P10,000 on top of your HMO and PhilHealth benefits to take care of other expenses. Receipts or hospital bills are not required.

Regular price of MediCash Dengue Insurance is P350 for customers without SM Advantage Card (SMAC) and P320 for SMAC holders. You can get this for P300 if you buy more than one policy, for you and for at least one of your loved ones with ages 14 days old up to 70 years old.
