Doing One’s Fair Share

Globe launched the My Fair Share eco-bag in 2012 which supported the livelihood of women communities who produced them. The eco-bags, made from recycled and bio-degradable materials, promoted conscientious consumerism among Globe employees, subscribers, and stakeholders. “My Fair Share eco-bags not only supported fair trade and enriched the lives of marginalized communities, but it also reinforced the advocacy of caring for our environment by using less plastic,” shared Rob I. Nazal, Globe Head for Corporate Social Responsibility.

This year, Globe collaborated with Team Manila Graphic Design Studio on three new My Fair Share eco-bag designs for 2013. Produced by partner Gifts & Graces’ beneficiary communities, the eco-bags supports more communities this year: Kaibhan Women’s Association, Pamana Pag-asa Boni Producers Cooperative and Caritas Manila.

These are the very same MY FAIR SHARE ECO-BAGS I gave away to lucky participants who joined my recently held “No Impact Week” challenge. Remember?

Well, if you weren’t able to get a bag during my challenge, you can still purchase your very own “My Fair Share Eco-Bag”.

The bags are available for only P120 each at all Globe business centers nationwide starting April 20.

“The My Fair Share program advocates caring for the environment but it also transforms the way Globe gives back—not only by aiding partners and beneficiary communities with capital, funds for capacity and skills development and ICT tools—but also by empowering them with livelihood opportunities,” explained Nazal.
