3 effortless ways to practice ‘Sustainable Sundays’ at Ayala Malls Central Bloc

·2 min read

EVERY person is responsible for the environment, but it should not feel like the weight of the world is on one's shoulders because reducing, reusing and recycling is as easy as 1-2-3. There's just a need to be more conscious, consistent and collective in efforts to save the planet.

Ayala Malls Central Bloc shares three effortless ways one can limit his carbon footprint:

Reducing Harmful Gases through Mode of Transportation

Smoke and harmful gases are produced by vehicles every day. Riding a bike or walking to one’s destination are great options to practice and are healthier alternatives too. Ditching a car trip saves electricity, heat and air conditioning. In biking to Ayala Malls Central Bloc, there's free bicycle parking at The Rack situated at the corner of West Geonzon and Padriga Streets, beside Metrobank.

Using Reusable Grocery Bags

With the Philippines ranked as the third biggest polluter in the world after China and Indonesia, initiatives are being taken to reduce plastic consumption. To be a part of the solution, one can happily hand a reusable bag at the cashiers when checking out groceries instead of asking for a plastic or paper bag. It's best to carry out groceries that will only be put out when they reach home. Using reusable grocery bags has many benefits, but most of all, it's the act of not contributing to plastic bag pollution and the effects of plastic on the environment.

Supporting Recycling Movements

Many establishments and organizations lead recycling campaigns by encouraging people to donate recyclable items, hosting seminars on how to do it at home and many more. Joining these not only helps one learn but also inspires others to do so. While individual efforts in reducing one's carbon footprint are significant, so does collective action and power.

Every Sunday, Ayala Malls Central Bloc has a Recyclables Drop Off station located at the Corte Garden near Vanille, in partnership with agencies and upcycling organizations. PET bottles proceed to Cenro, plastic sachets to Green Antz and other kinds of plastics are given to Brgy. Apas.

For every kilo of plastic donated, a coupon entitling a special gift can be claimed from the concierge. One can drop off clean and dry plastic containers and bottles, and be one in the movement of protecting the environment by not refusing to reuse.

Ayala Malls Central Bloc is the hip and happening bloc where the balance of work and play thrives. The five-level mall is located in the bustling 27-hectare IT Park. It is a project of Central Block Developers Inc., a subsidiary of Ayala Land Inc.
