As we celebrate World Environment Day this June, SM Lanang Premier encourages everyone to take action for a green and sustainable Mother Earth.
One of the ways which by which you can do your share for the environment is by recycling junk items rather than simply throwing them away. This action allows materials to be used again and reduces carbon footprint. If you are finding it hard to do your own recycling project at home, take part in recycling initiatives organized within the community.
SM Lanang Premier conducts such a project called “Trash to Cash” every first Friday and Saturday of the month. Anchored on the concept of a recycling market, Trash to Cash lets you trade or sell your trash to scrap buyers and convert it into cash. It is being held at all SM Supermalls nationwide and is an eco-friendly initiative of SM Cares – the flagship CRS program of SM Supermalls – in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Philippine Business for the Environment.
You can bring your junk to SM Lanang Premier’s Trash to Cash Recycling Market this June 7-8, Friday-Saturday, from 9am-5pm, at Open Parking D (beside The SM Store) and have them exchanged for useful items and cash with scrap buyers Anna Morales and Abel Arguelles.
Items you can trade in include scrap paper and cardboard and used lead batteries. Meanwhile, aluminum and tin cans, plastic bottles and scraps, metals, and junk electrical appliances, specially TVs and computer monitors can be converted into cash. Trash to Cash also acts as a drop-off point for polystyrene, styrofoam, and junk cellphones and cellphone batteries.
Scrap paper, cardboard and other junk items can be brought to the Trash to Cash Recycling Market held every first Friday and Saturday monthly at SM Lanang Premier.
Get involved in Trash to Cash and help save the environment! For more information, contact (082) 285-0943. (SM Lanang Premier)
