M Lhuillier Encourages Cavite Barangays to Dunk Their Junk.June 7, 2021
And with the fear that the virus could be anywhere unseen, more and more businesses have turned back to using single-use plastic. Indeed, it has been a lifesaver in the fight against CoVid-19 by helping to curb transmission, however, if we are not careful, improper disposal of wastes during this pandemic could lead to an ever-larger environmental crisis in the future. This 2021, M Lhuillier Financial Services Inc. forges on with its commitment to being the Tulay ng PaMLyang Pilipino. With a mission to helping communities through various programs and initiatives, M Lhuillier not only addresses the needs of the Filipino people but the environment that we live in. Although we are taught to properly dispose of our trash at an early age, as we grow up, doing proper segregation and disposal becomes a daunting chore. Now more than ever, with our health and safety on the line, practicing proper waste management is essential not just for the environment but for us to help flatten the curve of the pandemic.
With this in mind, M Lhuillier thought of a creative way to encourage three (3) barangays in Cavite by coming up with the “Dunk Your Junk” project to make disposing of used plastic bottles more fun for everyone. The group donated customized, basketball-inspired garbage bins to Barangay Big in Tanza, Barangay Sabang in Naic, and Barangay Burol II in Dasmariñas. Other exclusive M Lhuillier giveaways were also given much to the delight of the barangay officials who were present during the official turnover. Not only will this project teach the local community how to manage their waste responsibly and keep their surroundings clean, but the collected plastic bottles can also be sold to junk shops, thus generating income that will fund the future projects of the barangay.
The Earth is changing, and the environment is suffering. We are living in an era where climate change has started to affect our lives. This is why M Lhuillier continues to create initiatives to help lessen the paper and plastic waste that we produce. After all, helping the environment will make anyone feel like an MVP. No matter what challenges our communities face, M Lhuillier will always be of service to the Filipino people not just through convenient and reliable financial services, but through projects that change lives and gives hope to the future of our environment.
