Saving our natural resources, protecting our surroundings and environment, climate change, global warming, decreased rainfall, increased temperature; constant humidity, change in the arrival of seasons are just few concerns that we are all facing right now. It maybe overwhelming for each individual to help prevent all those concerns but with our own little ways of doing what is better for the nature, can be a big impact if we start it within ourselves.

Last August, Cebu Pacific together with the DOT, they launched the Juan Effect Sustainable Tourism Program. Cebu Pacific started a movement to help safe mother earth by shifting to recyclable, eco-friendly utensils for all flights which started last October 1, 2018.

This project aims to engage travelers and local stakeholders to mitigate the impact of tourist arrivals on the environment. Juan Effect aims to encourage responsible travel among passengers, and empower everyone to change at least one everyday habit. On a local level, Juan Effect will collaborate with island stakeholders to concerted action for the conservation of the environment.

As a start of this project, Cebu Pacific replaced non-recyclable plastic spoons, forks, stirrers and cups with sustainable alternatives on all its domestic and international flights starting last October 1, 2018.

The Juan Effect is a sustainable tourism program of Cebu Pacific Air, the leading airline in the Philippines.

It has three components:

1. We advocate for each person to make simple pledges to help preserve the beauty of the Philippines' most popular island destinations.

2. We work with local stakeholders of select Philippine island destinations to achieve solid waste management targets, to pave the way for a more sustainable tourism industry.

3. We implement even more environment-friendly processes in the airline, and invest accordingly. Learn more

We hope that together, we can create Juan big effect on the future of our Philippine islands.

Juan Effect is a multi-sectoral advocacy in partnership with the Philippine Department of Tourism (PDOT), and supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

So, by changing 1 everyday habit like bringing your own reusable water bottle to work or wherever you go will at least lessen the use of disposable plastic bottle being thrown after use. Or by simply throwing your trash properly will be a big impact with your community and the environment. Also by bringing your own eco bag when you go shopping is such a big help to save our mother earth.

Mga higala (friends), were you able to catch the exciting cooking session of Celebrity Chef Donita Rose in Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro last August 30, 2018?

With Regional Festivals rounding up in the country this coming months, Chef Donita Rose, along with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, started touring Cagayan de Oro to celebrate the Higalaay Festival last August.

Chef Donita shared her own twist on the famous Higalaay dish of Sinuglaw, composed of sinugba (grilled pork) and kinilaw. The dish was made more flavorful and healthier with the use of Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, which is Chef Donita’s most recommended kitchen staple as it’s packed with good fats such as Omega 3 and 6 that are great for the heart. It also has Vitamin A that helps improve eyesight and has the lowest saturated or bad fats among all kinds of cooking oil which makes it a healthier option. Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil also has a high smoking point making it the most ideal cooking oil for frying and deep frying.

“Going around the Philippines during these wonderful festivals and sharing my twist on the local recipes is always such a fun and fulfilling experience for me. It’s truly an honor to be part of what Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil has been doing in providing healthier and affordable food choices in local communities and helping spread the heart-healthy goodness of home cooking,” said Chef Donita.

Additionally, it was a fun-filled treat to Cagayan de Oro’s local moms and foodies who also got a chance to sample Chef Donita’s own rendition of Sinuglaw during her live cooking demo at Centrio Mall last August 30, 2018. Local Supermarket samplings were also done in Robinson’s and Shopwise Supermarkets in Cagayan De Oro.

“We are thrilled to bring Chef Donita and Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil to our local festival activations,” said Fly Ace Corporation Group Product Manager for Edible Oils, Zen Prudentino. “We want to continue educating Filipinos nationwide about the importance of using heart-healthy cooking oil in everyday cooking. We don’t need to sacrifice the taste and flavor of our meals; it’s definitely possible to always prepare healthy and delicious meals with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil,” she added.

Festival menus are usually oily but with Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, we can now eat guilt-free knowing that our food choices promote heart-healthy and may help with disease prevention. With the country’s consistent No. 1 and most trusted cooking canola oil brand, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil provides a healthy and affordable option in cooking our favorite festival dishes.

Chef Donita, together with GMA and Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil, is excited to prepare healthy dishes during her next Festival Tour in Vigan City’s Raniag Festival in October and for the Aklanons during the highly anticipated Ati-Atihan Festival in January.
