>Reusable Bags @ Rustans

>Go green with reusable bags

Went to Rustans Makati to buy some groceries and saw this campagne on reusable bags. Just imagine how much we can save with this bag instead of using plastics the next time we buy our groceries. Btw if you have a fresh card (rewards card of Rustans) you get twice the points when you use this card. Hehehe! I don’t have the card but I just wanna help. I’m encouraging you guys to consider this and help our environment… anyway what’s Php99?

>It’s time to be Green!

Electronic Jeepney!

Green is definitely in!

I just joined an organization that helps protect the environment… and yes you got it right it’s GREENPEACE. I’ve always wanted to do something that would make an impact even in my own little way. Starting today I will be using my blog and multiply to post information about the organization and it’s activities and maybe get the message across.

Here’s something that might be of interest to you guys…

An Electric Jeepney coasts along Bacolod City, 50 minutes by plane south of Manila 13 July 2007. Bacolod is the capital of Negros Occidental, the first province in the Philippines to embrace a 100% renewable energy target. The Electric Jeepneys, which are meant to be powered by renewable energy sources, were launched today by GRIPP (Green Renewable Independent Power Producer) and Greenpeace during the visit of Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to the city. GRIPP and Greenpeace called on the national government to support the large-scale replication of the project and to facilitate the massive uptake of renewable energy alternatives in the country.

Aside from Bacolod another city where this initiative is taking place is Makati City. Makati hope to get a better rating when it comes to the quality of air in the area from Fair to Good.
