Unilever and Shell improve toilet sanitation for the comfort of Holy Week travelers

It turns out that having a clean and sanitized bathrooms is a privilege and the price for the privilege in the malls and other public places here in Philippines ranges from 5 to 10 peso just to use bathrooms.if you’re traveling for more than a couple of hours you’re going to need to use a toilet.You can find two basic varieties. Squatters that are level with the floor, and which sit maybe fifteen to twenty centimeters off the floor and it’s no laughing matter.

Press Release:

The summer season heralds the start of an annual tradition among thousands of Filipino families – traveling to the provinces in observance of Holy Week. In preparation for this, Unilever Philippines, through leading toilet cleaner brand Domex, has partnered with Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation to provide motorists and travelers heading north and south of Luzon access to clean, hygienic toilets for their comfort during the yearly exodus.

Image

Leading the clean-up is Unilever Philippines Marketing Director for Home Care Jay Go and Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Vice President for Retail Anthony Lawrence Yam. North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Shell stations will experience Domex clean-ups beginning April 10.

“This coming Holy Week, when you gas up at Shell and take a break, you can expect smarter products and quality service at our stations,” says Yam.

“Everyone deserves a good toilet break during the long Holy Week journeys. With our cleanup drive, we at Unilever and our friends at Shell would like to assure the public of sanitized comfort rooms as they rest and recharge for their trip,” says Go.

Traveling during peak seasons introduces heightened risks of acquiring diseases, and some of the possible sources are poorly sanitized public restrooms that travelers may use along the way. Gas stations along major roads become the necessary stop-over points for commuters and private motorists, resulting in the crowded and busy use of comfort rooms and other facilities.

The cleanup drive is part of the 1 Million Clean Toilets program, an advocacy of Unilever through Domex to empower and inspire Filipinos to properly clean their own toilets with the right product in an effort to reduce incidences of disease that are related to lack of proper toilet sanitation. The program is set to culminate in November with the World Toilet Day celebrations.

With this, Unilever Philippines is providing six (6) months worth of Domex products for proper toilet sanitation of selected Shell gas stations.In support of the 1 Million Clean Toilets advocacy, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation submits their corporate pledge for clean toilets and continue to execute proper toilet sanitation throughout the year.

Everyone is encouraged to join the 1 Million Clean Toilets campaign by pledging for clean toilets. Simply visit the Facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/DomexPhilippines), like the page and click the “Pledge Here” button below the cover photo. For every pledge received, Unilever Philippines donates P5 to UNICEF’s Sanitation program which helps thousands of people get improved access to basic sanitation.

Breeze launched the Sige Sabado: which calls on moms to dedicate Saturdays to their kids

I was so happy to get an invite to attend: The Breeze Sige Sabado,an event for moms and their kids on how to spend their Saturday meaningful and memorable together.It was the very 1st time i get to bring my son who is 5 years old in this event which they also set up an activities perfect for kids to make them busy this summer.It was very memorable for me as a mom because i get to spend being with him and also being with other moms who also shares their experiences with their kids and with that,a big Thank you to Unilever and Stratworks for putting up an event like this:) – Michelle

Breeze urges moms to join the Sige Sabado movement and say Yes to Learning!

Mommies play the important role of being their children’s first and foremost teacher. They have the power to ensure their children grow up to be well rounded and happy kids. However, moms, by nature, have the tendency to be over protective of their children especially with regards to being messy.They often associate getting dirty and stained with something negative such as being irresponsible as well as hard work for them in terms of cleaning. This is the kind of mindset that Breeze, one of the country’s leading detergent brands, would want moms to change.Since Breeze strongly believes that life’s lessons are best learned through experience, the brand strongly encourages moms to adopt the Sige sa Mantsa philosophy which is all about allowing their kids to be kids and explore and learn positive values even at the expense of getting dirty and stained.

Saturdays are for the family

To further forward the advocacy of child learning and development, Breeze launched the Sige Sabado Movement which calls on moms to dedicate Saturdays to their kids. Sige Sabado hopes to encourage moms to spend their Saturdays creating lasting memories with their children by doing fun bonding activities together.Even if this means often getting dirty and stained, it’s okay since Sige Moms know that what matters most are the values learned, memories created and fun enjoyed in the process. Because of its strong stain removal power,Breeze is mom’s number one partner in encouraging active play and experiential learning since mom doesn’t need to worry about the mess this often brings.

“Kids learn best when they’re having fun with their moms,” said Unilever Home Care Marketing Director Mr. Jay Go, during the Sige Sabado Movement launch held at Arts in the City in Bonifacio Global City. “Through the Sige Sabado Movement, we hope to cultivate a stronger, more loving relationship between moms and their kids. After all, no matter how busy life gets, we should always make time for the ones who matter most. If this also leads to stains, it’s okay. Dirts and stains are temporary, memories and lessons are permanent. Sige sa mantsa! Sige sa learning!”

Circle of Sige Moms

As a highlight of the event, celebrity moms Barbie Almalbis-Honasan, Christine Bersola-Babao, Dimples Romana, Gladys Reyes, Nikki Valdez and Carmina Villaroel- Legaspiwere introduced as part of the Sige Mom Circle, a group of empowered moms united in their commitment to take charge of their kids’ learning and memories.

10156046_862689703756415_291080712_n

“Sharing in our vision of spending weekend time with their kids, our Sige Mom Circle will encourage other moms to participate in their children’s learning and spread the advocacy byactively sharing their everyday experiences with other moms,” said Go.

Growing the Sige Sabado habit

To make their Saturdays even more exciting, Breeze introduced the Sige Sabado Playbox to the Circle of Sige Moms, media moms, guest moms and their kids. The playbox is filled with materials and instructions for making harlequin masks, dinosaur egg bath soaps, choco art, raise a monggo plant, animal balloon paper mache, popsicle stick pen holder and DIY slime.

1660882_862685140423538_318682292_n

In a recent survey conducted by Breeze, they found out that Moms want to do activities with their kids but often run out of ideas. One hundred percent said that they wish they had activity ideas they can do with their kids. Through the playbox, Breeze aims to help moms by providing them with weekly fun activities through the playbox. Sige Sabado How To sheets will be available on Facebook and Breeze websites for moms and kids to download and create their own DIY projects. They can also capture and share their bonding and activity moments through the Sige Sabado Facebook App where weekly winners will receive a Breeze giftpack and the Sige Sabado Playbox while grand prize winners will win a trip to Legoland Malaysia Resort.

Breeze also seeks to help educate moms on why developing the Sige Sabado habit is so important for their child’s over all well being. Teacher Nurai, a Doctor of Family Life and Child Development from Guru Firmshared important insights and tips on raising smart and active kids, as well as the benefits of the Sige Style of parenting.

During the event, resident teacher and Ateneo de Manila University professor Wittam Bautista also spearheaded an activity where the moms and their kids designed aprons for their Sige Sabado activities. The kids were also treated to creative activities like cupcake decorating and canvas painting.

Join the Sige Mom Circle and take charge of your kids’ important learning and memories. Be a part of the Sige Sabado Movement now and visit www.breeze.com.ph for more Sige Guru tips.
