M Lhuillier encourages Cavite barangays to ‘dunk their junk’

·3 min read

WITH the increasingly global reach of Covid-19, everyone is facing new challenges that test the community's resolve. While governments enact quarantine orders and varying degrees of state emergencies, by staying at home, people generate more wastes than ever. 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 people 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 help communities through various programs and initiatives, M Lhuillier not only addresses the needs of the Filipino people but the environment as well.

Although proper disposal of trash is taught at an early age, as people grow up, doing proper segregation and disposal becomes a daunting chore. Now more than ever, with health and safety on the line, practicing proper waste management is essential not just for the environment but for everyone to help flatten the curve of the pandemic.

With this in mind, M Lhuillier thought of a creative way to encourage three 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 Brgy. Big in Tanza, Brgy. Sabang in Naic and Brgy. 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. Climate change has started to affect people’s lives. This is why M Lhuillier continues to create initiatives to help lessen the paper and plastic waste produced. After all, helping the environment will make anyone feel like an MVP. No matter what challenges 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 give hope to the future of the environment.
