THE NAKED LINE

A highlight of LUSH’s collection for Holiday 2017 is the Naked line that features its “bare-all” packaging approach, in which 80% of the seasonal range are offered in solid form without the use of plastic bottles or any packaging; thus, also called the naked alternative. Zero Waste christmas (6)Not using expensive packaging gives big savings that LUSH can invest into more team members and training. Products from the Naked line like body butters are formulated with little to no water and are therefore often innately self-preserving. This line aims to be a support for a better planet, too!Zero Waste christmas (13)Zero Waste christmas (4)LUSH Holiday 2017 Launch Post (14)

Sweep the Santa Baby lip scrub over your lips for a kissable pout as it’s packed with murumuru and illipe butter and accompanied by coconut and jojoba oils. You can also have this in lip tint.

 KNOT WRAPS FOR PRESENTS

The wraps are made from recycled plastic bottles and organic cotton, and each of the reusable fabric comes in different sizes—great for wrapping all sorts of presents.

WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner

By | Foodie, Green | No Comments

 Congratulations to the WWF Team @wwfphilippines   Gigi Montinola , Joel Palma and Vince Perez and the rest of the Philippine team. It’s now up to all of us to implement and follow their lead for a sustainable future  #sustainablefoodsustainablefuture#wwfphilippines #h2hgreen #h2hgivingbackth_hearts_22thumbnail.jpg

The changing climate and the uncontrolled and wasteful consumption have resulted in concerns on how to continue feeding the planet today and in the future.

This is why the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, with the mission of “Transforming Lives,” has gathered food connoisseurs and environmental advocates to support Sustainable Food Sustainable Future, a benefit dinner created to educate Filipinos on the importance of sustainable consumption and supporting our local farmers and fishermen by eating local.

Proceeds of the Sustainable Food, Sustainable Future dinner will go to WWF-Philippines’ campaigns and efforts to secure food sources of the future, aid the livelihood of local farmers and fishermen, and promote eco-friendly means of food production and consumption.

Sustainable food consumption and production involves looking at how resources are used in growing food and taking into account their impact on the environment and the community. This not only results in environmental benefits but also social and economic support such as increased competitiveness of local products, increased employment, and consequently reduced poverty. For consumers, it can mean fresher food with less chemicals and improved health.

WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (16)
WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (27) WWF is one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organizations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in over 100 countries. WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the Earth’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world’s biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

WWF-Philippines has been successfully implementing various conservation projects to help protect some of the most biologically-significant ecosystems in Asia since its establishment as the 26th national organization of the WWF network in 1997.

Hand line fishing initiatives provide an avenue to supply selectively-caught yellow fin tuna to market actors, environmentally conscious consumers and give local fisher folk a source of livelihood.

WWF President and CEO Joel Palma shared how food consumption affects not only the environment but the welfare and livelihood of the people and communities who work on food production, like farmers and fisher folk.

We would like to emphasize that the footprint of the produce not only contributes to climate change and threaten our planet’s future but can also negatively affect the future of those who grow or produce our food. We want to make sure resources are protected and sustained so that they can continue to be the source of livelihood for generations to come.”Joel Palma WWF sustainable benefit dinner WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (33) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (32) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (31) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (30) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (29) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (28) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (36) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (35) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (1) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (2) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (21) WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (8)WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (11)WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (43)WWF Sustainable Food Sustainable Future Benefit Dinner (22) Meanwhile, Chef Nicco Santos of Hey Handsome talked about how he partnered up with local fishermen and farmers who inspired his restaurant’s menu.  “One of the biggest reasons why I shifted my cooking style is because of sustainability. For me, personally, I find it more meaningful and more fulfilling if I know who’s growing the ingredients. Aside from it tasting better because it’s direct from the source, it’s fresher,”Santos stated.

“Aside from us feeling better about ourselves, it’s more fulfilling that it’s not about us. It’s always about someone else’s lives that we’re helping out. It’s fulfilling when you find that your truest purpose is to really help someone else to make a difference.”

“I think apart from just cooking for people as a profession, chefs of today really need to advocate the science of sustainability and using ingredients that help keep the planet sustainable and the environment clean because in the end, whatever we do is dependent on the produce,” quipped Chef Maragarita Forés emphasizing on the role of chefs and restaurateurs in the campaign to help the environment.

Chef Eric Weidmann (Sage), Chef Nicco Santos (Hey Handsome), Chef Chele Gonzalez (Gallery Vask), Chef Patrick Go (Black Sheep), Chef Sunshine Puey (Gourmandise), Chef Miko Aspiras (The Workshop), Chef Josh Boutwood (The Test Kitchen) and, Asia’s Best Female Chef of 2016 Margarita Forés (Grace Park), came together to show diners how local produce can result in flavorful creations that can help communities and the environment.

Four glorious pass around canapés paired kicked off the cocktails while the five-course dinner was started off with Weidmann’s Northern Guimaras Strait Blue Crab with Smoked Tanigue Tartare. This was followed by Santos’ Northern Guimaras Strait Blue Crab and Lemongrass Salad on Coconut-fermented Santol Crab Cracker, Gonzalez’and Go’s Yellowfin Tuna Belly with Szechuan and Adlai, Etag, Seaweed and Shiitake Congee, and Forés’and Boutwood’s Aleli’s Pork Loin, Headcheese, Sweet Potato, Humba Pineapple Glaze and Guava Gel, which is an homage to Daila Farm’s Aleli Crespo who sposored the night’s black pigs. The delectable dinner was perfectly capped off by Puey’s and Aspiras’ 64% Davao Dark Chocolate and Over-ripened Mangoes with Auro providing the chocolates used. Wines that complemented the courses were courtesy of one of the event co-presenters, Bacchus.

Makati Shangri-La Manila, another co-presenter, has showed its all-out support for this WWF-Philippines fundraiser as it very much aligned with the Shangri-La group’s “Rooted in Nature” philosophy and corporate social responsibility for a sustainable future in the Philippines, which is a manifestation of the group’s commitment to promoting greater traceability and transparency of food sources by working with local and sustainable providers. By 2020, the group’s goal is to serve 75 per cent more sustainably sourced food on their menus and through the “Rooted in Nature” dining experience, guests are enjoined in embracing and celebrating the benefits that sustainable food brings.

A sustainability forum, which will be moderated by CNN-Philippines’s Mitzi Borromeo, will also be held on August 12, 9:00 am to 11:00 am, in one of Central Square’s theatres to shed light on the current status of our planet in relation to sustainable travel and ecotourism. Panelists include Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet and Mayor Josephine Alcantara-Cruz of Donsol, among others.

As the Chairperson of WWF-Philippines National Youth Council, Alexa Cancio highlights the importance of sustainable living.  “Young people, having access to various information particularly through social media, are aware of the different social and environmental issues taking place all over the world. We believe that many of these issues can be addressed on the individual level by improving the way we live, which is why our council of eight members felt sustainable living would be the most appropriate message to push not just with young people, but with the Philippine society in general.”

She adds, “Right now, there isn’t any common online platform to find all the sustainable travel options in the Philippines, which is why it is timely to organize a travel fair like Green Wanderer that will house various sustainable options for the people.”

Another active green traveller and WWF-Philippines National Youth Council member, Nikki Huang believes that along with transport, accommodations have the biggest impact on our ecological footprint when traveling.Green Wanderer (19)

“The most interesting feature of the Green Wanderer travel fair is that it is green. Travel fairs are common, but WWF wanted to put a twist on this one. It’s as much a testament to sustainability and conservation efforts in the Philippines as it is a fun tourism experience. Travel takes on a whole other level of significance when done in a way that not only reduces harm, but is beneficial to the environment and local people and animals, and this is something that all of the organizations represented at this fair stand for,” shares Nikki.

According to WWF-Philippines President and CEO Joel Palma, travel and tourism contribute around 9 percent of the world’s total GDP. One out of 11 jobs are related to tourism and travel.

He notes, “The benefits from the travel industry are so vast a scale that we cannot afford this industry to fail. With climate change and wasteful consumption issues over our planet’s ability to produce, green travel is a must to save our environment. This should be a concerted effort from both the traveler and the travel industry to ensure that we leave a living planet for future generations to enjoy and benefit from.”

SSI Group, Inc. President Anton Huang says, “It’s a privilege to be able to partner with WWF on this truly unique event. Travel has become a big part of all of our lives. Whether you’re a budget traveler or a luxury traveler, there’s always room for more awareness when it comes to how our travels impact our planet. Creating Green Wanderer is our way of practicing this advocacy here in our own backyard, and presenting Filipino travelers with options and ideas.”
