Globe employees led by CSR Project Head Victor Chan (left),  HR Sr. Specialists Dulce Almine (center) and Arleen Limqueco (right)donate used tarpaulins and unclaimed employee uniforms to Pamana Pag-Asa cooperative represented by Editha Arimano, Supervisor for the sewing line (2nd to left) and Sulficia Delgado, Quality Controller (2nd from right).  The materials will be used to make bags and bag linings.


As part of its enterprise development program and environmental campaign, Globe Telecom donated 2,000 old tarpaulins and about 2,000 unclaimed employee uniforms to a women's cooperative in Mandaluyong City. The tarpaulins and uniforms will be converted into shopping bags and bag linings, then sold commercially by the cooperative.

Pamana Pag-asa is a 15-member community enterprise founded in 2008 which transforms recycled tarpaulins, canvas, nylon, katya and other materials into useful items. Pamana Pag-asa was also a recipient of the Globe Bridging Communities (Globe BridgeCom) livelihood grant which helps sustain and expand the enterprises of community beneficiaries so that they can ultimately achieve economic self sufficiency.

With the donation, the company’s old tarpaulins and unclaimed uniforms will not go to waste but will instead be used to help augment the earnings of Pamana Pag-asa members, and at the same time, contribute to Globe's solid waste management efforts.

“Globe BridgeCom encourages community enterprises to use renewable, sustainable and organic materials and apply environmentally-responsible practices in production.  This way, we can continue to act as the change agent for society as well as create sustainable solutions to change the lives of the Filipinos,” said Jeffrey Tarayao, Head of Globe CSR.
