Manila's First Ever 'ECOUTURE: Greener Design for a #BetterWorld'
I'm all about making this world a better place and it always energizes me when I get to promote efforts from people who make it happen.
One such organization is the Aboitiz Foundation, the CSR of the Aboitiz Group, one of the nation's biggest conglomerates and not too long ago they've had a big event held in Metro Manila's most fashionable mall, SM Aura to celebrate young Filipino ingenuity dubbed as Ecotoure which brings together the next who's who in the industry while utilizing materials from the different business groups.
Sustainability while making pieces high-end is the goal of reusing such materials into runway-worthy clothing and accessories. And these budding fashion students from the metro's biggest unis did more than that. They embody the very essence why we should do business, and that is to give back to the community and the world.
While we're too busy giving into too much consumerism, have we even asked ourselves when was the last time we recycled something? And I'm not even talking about going back to the one that got away but a thing bigger than ourselves. This is environmental protection and if we do our little parts every now and then, then we are contributing to the bigger efforts of living to fight another day.
We are giving the next generations a chance to live a better world, a mantra this organization lives by. And I am not just encouraging you to buy what you only need, but to give away what you don't. Or better yet rethink the way you use your possessions so they have more value to you or others and we all know that doesn't only apply to our wardrobe. Think bigger. And the life you save in the end might be yours one day.
