Avon Pushes for Planet-kind Beauty | PR Post | MarkMyName

 When Avon said it is doing beauty differently, they meant it in every step of their process.

Challenging the industry in the Philippines for 44 years and globally for over 135 years, Avon is on an ambitious journey for long-term sustainability. The global beauty brand is perfecting every formula with cruelty-free technology, shifting to recyclable packaging, and advocating for community welfare by putting the environment first.

As part of Natura &Co, Avon adheres to a 2030 Commitment to Life that aims to achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2030. And in its efforts toward sustainability, the global beauty brand announced Its first solar-powered facility.

Avon, in collaboration with Spectrum, a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), inaugurated the solar rooftop project in its manufacturing plant in Calamba Laguna last April 22, in celebration of Earth Day.

Since its completion, the solar installation has generated more than 250,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy, helping the beauty company lower its carbon footprint by 160 tonnes. It is expected to generate almost 841,100 kWh clean energy on its full year of operations, nearly quadrupling the carbon footprint reduced to 599 tonnes or equivalent to 329,315 trees planted.

"Taking care of our planet is also similar to taking care of the people because the people will be the ones who will benefit when we take care of our planet. We want to highlight that this is the first solar project of Avon, not just in the Philippines, but internationally," says Tirso Antonio B. Pereja, Avon Products Mfg., Inc. Head of Operations, during the inaugural ceremony.

With its installation of solar panels, Avon joins the roster of international and local companies that engaged Meralco and Spectrum as part of their sustainability journey.

Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings Power Up Blowout | PR Post

Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings unveils a new trio of promos to further encourage Pinoys to start saving money

To urge more Filipinos to save up for their future, Cebuana Lhuillier, one of the country’s top m institutions, is offering three exciting promos for its new and existing micro savings clients that will run until July 31, 2022.

Clients who will open a new micro savings account may purchase their 24k card at half the price for only PHP75. Along with this, they will also automatically earn an entry to Cebuana Lhuillier’s Lucky Savings e-raffle promo, where they can win up to PHP50,000. The raffle is also open to existing clients who will upgrade their micro savings account Quick cards to Cebuana Lhuillier 24k debit cards. On top of these offers, Cebuana Lhuillier micro savings account holders can also enjoy free money transfer services to any of its over 3,000 branches nationwide.

“Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings provided ordinary Filipinos with the opportunity to save for their future, and has proved to be essential to many of our kababayans during the intense lockdown periods at the height of the pandemic. Now that we are in the process of rebuilding, I encourage our Ka-Cebuanas to start saving once again. Truly, the mark of a financially-included Filipino is one that can be assured of a nest egg—no matter how small—that they can use for the rainy days,” Cebuana Lhuillier president & CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

Since its launch in 2019, Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings has made a difference in the lives of its clients, by making it easy for majority of Filipinos to save money without the usual pain points in opening a bank account. A product of Cebuana Lhuillier Bank and made available nationwide by cash agent Cebuana Lhuillier, Micro Savings enabled clients to open a bank account with just fifty pesos and one valid ID.

Three years after its launch, Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings has gained close to 6 million account holders, and has served as a valuable resource for Filipinos who relied on the money they have saved in order to survive at the height of the pandemic.

However, despite the growth in number of savings account holders, majority of Filipinos remain unbanked. In fact in 2020, only 25% of households had any form of savings, most of which are from high-and-middle-income groups.
