Garnier launches Green Beauty in the Philippines

  • The L’Oreal Group is advancing on its 2030 sustainability commitments with an end-to-end approach to sustainability that aims to reduce environmental impact in beauty retail.
  • Garnier leads the sustainability movement in the beauty sector as the first beauty brand to launch sustainable e-commerce packaging in the Philippines

Philippines, 23 October 2020 – Under the L’Oréal Group’s global sustainability targets geared towards fighting climate change, sustainable water management, respecting biodiversity and the preservation of natural resources, Garnier launches Green Beauty – an end-to-end approach to sustainability in beauty retail aimed at reducing its environmental impact at every stage of the value chain – from education, purchasing and recycling. 

“The past few months has been a very exciting journey for us at L’Oréal, as we accelerated our transformation to creating a more sustainable world for beauty, with a focus on environmental stewardship and social empowerment. Green Beauty is our springboard to get our partners, and most especially our consumers, involved in this important cause. We believe that through collective action, we can meet our bold ambitions faster, and give our consumers the information to make more sustainable choices,” said Supriya Singh, Country Managing Director of L’Oréal Philippines.

 Garnier is driving the wheel for L’Oréal’s sustainability endeavours, ensuring products contain more than 90% natural origin ingredients, certified organic product ranges, and vegan formulas. The green beauty brand will be championing sustainable eCommerce through Green Parcel, Green Spaces and Sachet Recycling with in-store retail partners and will continue to push for the empowerment of consumers through Green Education. 

Addressing eCommerce Packaging Waste with Green Parcel 

In partnership with Shopee, Sain Bags and Econest, Garnier is the first beauty brand to launch sustainable e-commerce packaging made of honeycomb, cassava starch and other biodegradable materials. Each purchase made from the official Garnier store on Shopee will be specially packed using eco-friendly sources and materials to reduce their overall packaging footprint. 

As an alternative to bubble wraps, Garnier has partnered with EcoNest Philippines for the use of the Geami honeycomb protective packaging solution. The patented 3D die cut paper is made from FSC certified virgin kraft paper with an interleaf tissue that provides excellent surface protection to prevent possible damages and abrasion when wrapping and handling parcels. The recycling rate of paper at 85.6% greatly outweighs the recycling rate of plastics at 42%. Not only will it take the honeycomb material 2-6 weeks to biodegrade in nature, but this eco-friendly alternative is also fully renewable which makes it one of the most sustainable solutions available in the market.

In partnership with SainBags, the packaging will be made from cassava that are made from cassava starch and other materials from renewable resources. It is biodegradable and compostable, leaving no toxic residues and causing no damage to our oceans, waterways, land and is harmless to animals and plants. It can safely return to nature in the form of H2O and CO2, and in turn feeds our agriculture, making it part of a truly sustainable lifecycle. It does not contain a trace of plastic, therefore, do not contribute to the micro-plastics problem and takes around 90 days to compost in soil or a body of water, as opposed to hundreds of years for a regular PE bag.  

“Our constant search for innovation and reinvention of consumer experience fuels us at Garnier to lead the change in creating a sustainable world of beauty. By assessing how we work and the key areas of our value chain where we can find more sustainable alternatives, we can create a positive impact on the environment and give our consumers a better and more holistic beauty experience,” shared Isabel Falco, Marketing Director of Garnier and L’Oréal Paris Philippines.

“We are deeply honored and excited to partner with the L’Oreal Group on this transformative journey. This is our first partnership with a brand to help further their goals on sustainability. We hope that their global thrust will kickstart a new culture of sustainability in beauty retail and e-tail that will inspire real change across industries. Shopee will provide our utmost support to make this Green Beauty campaign meaningful and successful. With the delivery of every Green Parcel, we also hope to inspire consumers in The Philippines to start thinking about how they can play a role in sustainability, and collectively raise awareness on this important issue,” said Ruoshan Tao, Head of Marketing of Shopee Philippines.

The growth of eCommerce has transcended consumer and industry market expectations during the first few months of lockdown in the Philippines and continues to grow in popularity. Digital consumerism has become a precedent, and with the demand for more accountability across industries, Garnier takes great responsibility in providing consumers with sustainable choices, in hopes to inspire others to act with them. 

Sustainable In-Store Experience and Recycling Initiatives 

Garnier aims to extend the sustainability experience to its retail partners and shoppers. The brand deploys hundreds of in-store modules such as product hangers and side bins every year to reduce plastic waste. With the Green Spaces initiative, Garnier has taken a sustainable approach in producing different merchandising materials and point-of-sales collaterals by using recycled and recyclable materials. These materials are found in more than 230 stores nationwide. 

Working towards incremental change in recycling habits and reducing waste, Garnier is working hand in hand with Mercury Drug and Plastic Flamingo for a sachet collection drive. Customers are encouraged to return used sachets by dropping it in Garnier stations in Mercury Drug branches in Metro Manila. Collected sachets will be recycled to build emergency houses in partnership with Plastic Flamingo 

Educating Consumers to make informed Choices with Green Education 

Committed to engaging customers, suppliers and partners in the Group’s transformation process, Garnier has taken the lead by partnering with Edukasyon PH, the largest EdTech platform for the Filipino youth, in developing modules focused on the education of sustainability, co-created for the Green Education Program. Through integrating concrete sustainability practices, Garnier aims provide a better understanding of sustainability and empower consumers to make more informed choices.

“Green Education marks the beginning of efforts to empower people with important knowledge and practices on sustainability. We will take on greater responsibility, engage our entire ecosystem and demonstrate that companies can be part of the solution to the pressing challenges the world is facing. We are looking forward to seeing more partnerships come into fruition in the next few months and be able to contribute to creating a sustainable and beautiful world for everyone,” Singh shared.

 

About L’Oréal’s sustainability commitments: we are not starting from scratch

Very early on, L’Oréal became aware of the need to respond to environmental challenges. As an industrial company, it decided that tackling the environmental impact of its plants and distribution centers was the most obvious first step, and a necessary one, to begin its transformation process. This first phase is nearly completed. 

  • Since 2005, the Group has reduced the CO2 emissions of its plants and distribution centers by 78% in absolute terms, exceeding its initial target of 60% by 2020, while production volume increased by 37% over the same period. 
  • At the end of 2019, L’Oréal had 35 carbon neutral sites (meaning they use 100% renewable energy), including 14 factories.

In 2013, L’Oréal decided to address the core of its activity: the development of beauty products, its global sustainability programme Sharing Beauty With All, announcing tangible sustainability goals towards 2020. At its core laid an innovative tool known as SPOT (for Sustainable Product Optimization Tool), made to assess and improve the environmental and social performance of products across all brands. Sustainability is now fully integrated into the design process of the Group’s new products, from the earliest stages. 

  • 85% of products created or renovated in 2019 had an improved environmental and social profile. 
  • By end of 2019, L’Oréal has helped 90,635 people from disadvantaged communities find employment through the solidarity purchasing and inclusion programs.
  • L’Oréal is the only company in the world to have achieved an “A” score in all three CDP rankings – climate protection, water management, forest preservation – for 4 years in a row.

Champions of Change: Colgate’s #SmileStrong Campaign Calls for Optimists to Take Action

In the face of natural disasters, violent conflict, poverty, and a number of deep-seated societal issues, the common Filipino’s “resilience” has constantly been held up as a shining character trait. However, a growing number of people are seeing “The Filipino Resilience” as a glorified coping mechanism, seemingly resigned to just powering through adversities with a mindset to live just to survive each day.

Optimism in Action: Giving people a reason to smile about the future

Colgate aims to reinstate the optimistic spirit behind Filipino smiles, but in such a way that galvanizes them into progressive action. Optimism in Action means people making an effort to enact positive change, tackling challenges and issues head on with a strong smile, fully believing in the bright future they aim to create. 

Everyday many people are putting their optimism in action, mostly flying under the social media radar until now: Colgate’s #SmileStrong campaign highlights and celebrates the remarkable efforts and achievements of such people, while encouraging the optimist in everyone to take action with a bright smile and win the hearts of others in the process.

#SmileStrong spotlights three exceptional individuals, or Muses, whose Optimism in Action sparked positive change among their respective communities and social spheres. Arizza Nocum, Candy Pangilinan and Brina Maxino share the same bright smile, born out of their own individual hardships and the strength they mustered to achieve what convention told them they couldn’t.

Muses of positive change

Arizza Nocum is a peace advocate, leader, and entrepreneur who co-founded KRIS, a non-profit organization promoting peace through education. Operating as libraries/educational centers for disadvantaged youth in conflict-ridden areas, KRIS is the manifestation of Arizza’s hopeful vision that people of different faiths can better understand each other through shared learning. 

Actress Candy Pangilinan is a single mom to 16-year old Quentin, who has ADHD. Candy admits to her difficult experience in raising a child with special needs, but finds that experience as rewarding as any other parent would. She wrote a book, “Mommy Dear: Our Special Love”, which details her journey on overcoming her fears and dealing with her son’s condition, and continues to challenge the stigma of being a single parent using whatever platform she can.

Brina Maxino has Down Syndrome, yet went above and beyond what was expected of her, she is now an Assistant Teacher at PEAN Integrated School and Special Olympics Global Youth Ambassador for Asia-Pacific. Brina credits her bright and positive attitude to her parents, who fully believed in her abilities and shaped her convictions that her disability was not a barrier to living a normal life.

Enacting #SmileStrong initiatives through media events and activities

Colgate champions these three muses who smile through uphill battles, who challenge the status quo with a positive outlook and shape the future with their confidence.

Colgate’s #SmileStrong campaign seeks to demonstrate the inspirational power of these remarkable individuals through a series of short videos. These videos highlight how each muse’s optimism can be transformative, their smiles powered by the belief and the drive to effect meaningful change. 

“While a lot of Filipinos may just smile their troubles away, there are those who silently do what they can, with the circumstances they are dealt with, to make their lives, and lives of other people better. And they do all of these with a smile!” says Ari Mandelbaum, Marketing Director of Colgate- Palmolive Philippines. ”[The muses] live the spirit of Optimism in Action every day, each with their own unique stories and struggles, but manage to rise above their challenges to serve as inspiration to society in their own ways.” 

Join Colgate in realizing our inner optimist’s potential for constructive change, so we can all #SmileStrong and share in the joy of those victories, big or small.

Chen said, “OPPO uses technology to empower people to capture the beauty around them and to unleash their imagination of the future; thereby helping everyone get the best out of life. Accordingly, we decide to set forth the 3+N+X technology development strategy for OPPO’s long-term development.”

The “3” refers to the three underlying technologies, namely hardware, software and services technologies, which help OPPO to bring an integrated smart life to users worldwide. “N”, represents a number of OPPO’s essential capabilities, including AI, security and privacy, multimedia, and interconnectivity. Lastly, “X”, refers to the leading-edge and differentiated technologies and strategic resources such as the flash charge technology that foster innovation and greatly improve user experience.

 “It’s important to build technical capabilities, but it’s even more important to innovatively integrate them. OPPO believes we should bring the benefits to users, and leave all the complexity to us,” said Levin Liu, OPPO Vice President and Head of OPPO Research Institute, in his keynote speech.

The concept handset features OPPO’s three proprietary technologies, including the Roll Motor powertrain, 2-in-1 Plate, and self-developed Warp Track high-strength screen laminate. They lead to a continuously variable OLED display that measures as small as 6.7 inches and as large as 7.4 inches, which allows users to adjust the size of the display based on actual needs. 

OPPO AR Glass 2021 fully manifests the “leap” in OPPO’s exploration of the digital world. Adopting the brand-new split design, OPPO AR Glass 2021 is compact and ultra-light; the device is nearly 75% lighter than its predecessor. As for the core components, OPPO AR Glass 2021 is built with the Birdbath optical solution, enhancing the immersive experience. 

Also, OPPO AR Glass 2021 features diverse sensors, including stereo fisheye camera, one ToF sensor, and one RGB camera. They can not only support a number of natural interactions, including interactions via smartphone, gesture-based interactions, and spatial localization, but also complete the three-dimensional spatial localization calculation within milliseconds, achieving precise localization and offering users real and natural experience of spatial interaction in the AR world through constant update and feedback of real-time position of the user within the space. 

The CybeReal AR application powered by real-time, spatial calculation technology enables high-precision localization and scene recognition, and is supported by OPPO’s three core technologies, including accurately reconstructing the world to the centimeters, real-time high-precision localization, and OPPO Cloud, enriching user’s perception and understanding of the real world. 

OPPO INNO DAY has been successfully held in two consecutive years. Tony Chen stressed at the conference that OPPO hopes to create a world of kindness through virtuous innovation. Inspired by Technology for Mankind, Kindness for the World, OPPO integrates technological innovation with a human touch in order to give users value by offering personalized technology that is appropriate and relevant. Going forward, OPPO will continue to collaborate with partners, illuminating the future of humane technology.

Huawei Watch Fit

Honestly since July, I’ve lost my workout mojo and yeah, I gained weight. I was comforted by others saying “Uso yan ngayon kaysa mawalan ng panlasa”. In english, gaining weight is a trend now. It’s better to gain weight than losing your sense of taste. But hey! It’s okay, if you feel that way and you acknowledge it. You’re not the alone one. Start again, get that mojo back and fix your diet.

Just in time, it might be a sign to get physically active when Huawei released their latest fitness watch. This innovative fit watch from Huawei would be personally be my favorite at the moment and easy to operate – The Huawei Watch Fit.

In terms of size, it’s perfect for me and goes well with a minimal look. Not too flashy. The screen is rectangular, compared to others that are usually square shape.The Huawei watch fit comes in 3 colors: mint, cantaloupe and graphite.

I’ve attest to the 10 day battery life, it’s true and definitely long lasting. Speaking of battery, let’s talk about it’s charger – it’s a magnetic cradle type. Btw, when you avail the box you won’t get an adapter with the charger plus the quick start guide.

What makes this watch extra special, the 12 animated fitness courses- You choose your workout mode for example fat burning. Then there appears your virtual trainer and new gym buddy. (Workout > fitness course > choose workout). Then it also have 96 workout modes. Still full health monitoring, built GPS, SP02 and the 5ATM water resistance.

Yes, you can swim using this watch but not deep diving. Personally, I haven’t attempted it yet since our pool in our condo is still close. Hopefully soon.

You can avail the Huawei Watch Fit for PHP 4, 499 at the Huawei Store Philippines – https://consumer.huawei.com/ph/wearables/watch-fit/
