Refill Revolution Brings Low-priced Goods To Fernandinos Anew [ Wednesday, 13th of March 2019 | 1 week ago ]
Fernandinos were able to avail on January 8, 2019 some low-priced but quality goods as “Refill Revolution” was staged anew in the City of San Fernando.
A brainchild of the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), Refill Revolution encourages the community in bringing their own containers in availing different products—at discounted prices from various partner suppliers.
For this edition, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) spearheaded the event in Barangay Sto. Rosario.
Event partner, Hahsy Industries, offered fabric conditioner and dishwashing liquid, while Nutri-Asia, Inc., together with Classic Brand Distributorship, Inc., made available their brands like “Datu Puti” vinegar and soy sauce.
CENR Officer Regina Rodriguez said that the city is glad for the continuous participation of their partners and wished to organize more Refill Revolutions in the coming months.
“Natutuwa tayo sa walang sawang pagsuporta ng ating partner suppliers sa aktibidad na ito. We are targeting to stage this again on Pyestang Fernandino in May na may mas malaking bilang ng partners at mga kalahok,” said Rodriguez.
This was seconded by Hahsy Industries’ Heman Syki, who said, “we are always willing to partner in all the events of the city like this, especially if it’s beneficial to the consumers and the suppliers, as well.”
Mayor Edwin “EdSa” Santiago was also one of the lucky Fernandinos who have availed of the products. He said that this was CSF’s way of protecting the environment and providing the community cheap but quality goods.
“Ang Refill Revolution, naka-akma yan sa pangangalaga sa kalikasan. Instead na pakalat-kalat ang ating containers, we use them para dito. Isa rin ito sa paraan ng pagbaba ng ating commodities dahil mas pinamura ang bilihin,”
Santiago said. Refill Revolution is part of the 18th Cityhood Anniversary celebration of San Fernando, following its first two editions in June and December of 2018.
