Resorts World Manila (RWM), the country’s premier one-stop, nonstop lifestyle destination, continues to go green by following through on its environmentally-responsible initiatives this 2015.
Staying true to the company’s Earth Day pledge back in April 2013, RWM started the year by conducting its regular monthly recycling day activity last January 27. The company-wide initiative produced 1.8 tons of recyclable materials including cartons, used papers, aluminum cans, and plastic bottles.
Last year, RWM was able to collect 21 tons of recyclable materials as well as boxes of clothes and linen, in addition to the 14 tons gathered during its initial six-month run in 2013. All the collected materials are donated to Buddhist organization Tzu Chi Foundation Philippines and are made into clothing, thermal blankets, and other useful items for disaster relief operations around the country.
This ongoing project is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility program ‘Live and Love Green’. The initiative allows RWM to pursue various activities aimed actively to promoting environmental sustainability.
“Through our ‘Live and Love Green’ program, we continuously seek and implement innovative ways to keep our commitment as an environmentally-responsible integrated resort development,” said Owen Cammayo, RWM’s Director for Corporate Communications. “We hope to sustain the momentum from last year and contribute even more to this advocacy (in 2015) to help preserve and rehabilitate our mother earth.”
