GO GREEN REVO: HOPING FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE


NCCC Supermarket will be having a one-day event strengthening its recent campaign on single-use plastics to encourage more consumers to adapt zero waste lifestyle in their own simple ways.

“Own simple ways like choosing reusable items in daily routines and skipping single-use plastics lalo na sa pagpack ng mga pinamili natin. It is in our own simple ways that we can help in protecting our planet earth,” NCCC Supermerket Marketing Manager Janna Mutalib said.

The event is inspired from the retail company's campaign called Go Green Campaign which promotes sustainable and environment-friendly grocery shopping to its customers. It was launched in December 2018 with the opening of the Green Lane Counter which is now open across 28 branches.

The Green Lane Counter is a special counter for shoppers who opt to have their items packed with eco-friendly and re-useable bags. They can either purchase it at the counter or bring one along with them.

The event shall begin with Go Green Run, the first plastic-free fun run in Davao City.

“Dito natin makikita na posible pala talaga na magkaroon ng zero waste lifestyle,” Mutalib said.

There will be three categories for the fun run – 3 kilometer run for kids ages eight to twelve years old, 5 kilometer and 10 kilometer run for open category age 13 and above. Parents who wants to run with their kids can join the 3 kilometer run. Prizes run up to fifty thousand pesos. Kapamilya Host and Fitness Enthusiast Gretchen Ho will also be present to join the run.

A Zumba Fest will follow right after the fun run with Dance Instructor Regine Tolentino. All throughout the day, series of activities promoting wellness and eco-friendly habits are all lined up.

“It is a one-day event that will not only encourage us to be environment conscious but to maintain a well and healthy lifestyle as well,” Mutalib added.

Go Green Revo 2019 will be on July 28, 2019 at NCCC Mall VP from 6 am to 6 pm.
