Earth Day 2013 @SM was mainly celebrated at SM Megamall Event Center. Aside from this, all SM Supermalls nationwide also celebrated Earth Day 2013 @SM and one of them is the SM CITY CALAMBA.
Last April 22, 2013, SM City Calamba celebrated Earth Day, in partnership with the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO), with the theme, “Earth Day Everyday, Everywhere, for Everybody.” The program started at 10AM at the mall’s Entrance One, where Ms. Odessa Galicia, Mall Manager, gave her welcome remarks, while Ms. Loida S. Humarang, CENRO Officer, presented how organic products help preserve our environment.
The event primarily showcased water hyacinth and coconut shell products at its ECO FAIR. Water hyacinth exhibitors, Remdavies Enterprises, presented bags, slippers and baskets among others and even gave a demonstration on how some of them were made, while coconut shell exhibitors, SA’TIN Crafts, bragged their lamps, candle holders, lambanog bottles and more! Actually, Ms. Remia V. Adedoja, President of the Laguna Water Hyacinth Handicraft Producers’ Association, and Mr. Alex G. Batoon, President for Region IV-A’s Designer’s Association.were present during the Eco Fair.
In addition, Chef Von Byron M. Ebron, SM City Calamba’s My City, My SM, My Cuisine Grand Champion and owner of Mi Bonitos Restaurant, prepared his very own organic menu of Mixed Greens with Fried Dilis in Kalamansi Honey Vinegre and Vietnamese Spring Rolls and guests were all praises to his “masterpiece”.
Now, this is another way for SM to show how it is environmentally friendly, through this Earth Day celebration at all SM Supermalls nationwide.
