TPB brings environmental initiative to Laguna and Rizal

TPB employees doing their share in preserving key tourist destinations

Aside from promoting local tourism and raising awareness on its sustainable aspects, the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines, the marketing and promotions arm of the Department of Tourism (DOT), aims to lead by example as it takes part in protecting scenic tourist destinations of the Philippines through Fun Goes Green, its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program. Recently implemented in Laguna and Rizal, the program encourages TPB volunteers and local tourism stakeholders to do their part in preserving the natural beauty of the said destinations

As a budding tourist destination in Southern Luzon, more and more people, locals and foreigners alike, flock to Rizal and Laguna because of their rich heritage and beautiful sites. With this, the CSR is in line with TPB’s message that the environment shouldn’t bear the expense of the joy of travelling.

In partnership with the Haribon Foundation, TPB volunteers went on a two-day immersion with different activities to help protect the natural sites of Laguna and Rizal.

The first destination was Buhay Punlaan Native Tree Nursery in Lumban, Laguna where participants learned about the importance of the propagation stage of forest restoration through activities that included the collection of wildings from mother trees, soil potting and bagging, as well as seedling and seed transplantation. “It is very important to focus on the native trees because these are the species that are most adapted to the Philippine rainforest ecosystem. And that is what we want to promote across the nurseries that we established alongside our community partners,” said Joseph Riel A. Senga, partnerships officer of The Haribon Foundation.

The TPB also headed to the Japanese Garden in Caliraya, Laguna and Mount Batolusongin Barangay San Andres where employees had a trekking and tree planting activity with provincial securities and the Barangay San Andres Samahan Ng Mga Magsasaka.

“We have planted around 1,250 native seedlings here in Barangay San Andres. These seedlings, once they grow to become trees, will provide shelter to the animals living in this area. Also, this will help in giving cleaner air. This project is really important because it shows how nature and humans are interconnected. When we help the environment, it also provides us with what we need,” said Nova Regalario, Conservation Specialist at Haribon Foundation.

TPB’s visit to Laguna and Rizal is the 3rd leg of its CSR program in 2019. Earlier this year, they also implemented CSR activities in Tarlac and Ilocos Norte. Similar activities were also conducted in Iloilo, Bicol, Batanes, Banaue, Laguna, and Surigao del Sur last year.

VP, Project Development and Marketing; Catherine Ilagan, Filinvest Alabang, Inc. president and COO; Winnifredo Lim,  Filinvest Land, Inc. SVP, chief technical planning officer; Eliseo Aurellado, Metro Stonerich vice chairman & COO; and Fernando Villanueva, International Trading Corp. manager

Filinvest has taken another step in responding to demands of co-living spaces with The Crib – a three-tower development along Corporate Woods Avenue that offers affordable yet comfortable and secure residence for students and employees, particularly those studying and working within the vicinity of Filinvest City.

The first to rise is The Crib’s Tower A, an 11-storey building that offers a fun, hip alternative to old-style dormitories with full amenities to support and complement the busy, active lifestyles of millennials. It is designed for people who are just starting to live independently and looking for a second home that is customizable to suit their preferences, but without sacrificing their personal enjoyment and needs.

Ideal for those who want to explore their unique styles and express their creativity and independence in fun ways, The Crib features common areas with free Wi-Fi such as a peaceful study area, a lounge area that has a pantry area where people can gather and collaborate creatively, while each unit is airconditioned and fully furnished with built in closets, comfortable beds and storage spaces for each tenant. They will also feel safe and secure with their own RFID personal keycards, 24-hour security service and CCTV installed in strategic areas.

“The Crib was developed in response to the increasing demand for decent yet affordable long-term accommodations that offer hotel-like amenities, and near schools or workplaces of individuals whose primary residences are far,” says Filinvest Alabang Inc. president Catherine Ilagan. “More importantly, they will have more time to enjoy what truly matters in their journey as young adults.”

Strategically located at Bloc 10 beside Far Eastern University within the live, work, play community of Filinvest City, The Crib allows its tenants to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle. It is also right beside The Crib Mall and is a walk away from Asian Hospital, transport hubs, as well as lifestyle, dining and entertainment centers such as the Festival Mall and WestGate. Easy access to green, open spaces that are ideal for recreational and fitness activities also promote wellness and a sense of community.

Ensuring that The Crib lives up to its name as a world class development, Filinvest has tapped top global consultants and partners who have collaborated with some of their iconic developments, including H1 Architecure and Designs, Metro Stonerich as the general contractor, and International Trading Corporation. 

The Crib, with its fresh, one-of-a-kind living concept, is definitely a welcome development in the fast-growing and changing the urban landscape of Metro South.
