5 Ways to be Eco-friendly this ‘Back-to-school’ Season

Untitled-3 copy

When kids anticipate the fun of back-to-school shopping, it always makes it a bit lighter and easier to bid goodbye to the summer season. Thankfully, though, today’s school supplies have come a long way. You can actually find ones that are colorful and stylish yet non-toxic. Yes, it’s music to our ears.

Here’s some tips to make going back to school easy and cool for both your kid and the planet.

ECO-FRIENDLY LUNCH BAGS – There are countless ways to be eco-friendly in packing lunch and using plastic sandwich bags are a big no-no today. The better option is to pack their snacks or lunch in reusable food and drink containers which can be used throughout the school year. If paper bags must be used, look for bags that are made from recycled paper.

DAILY EXERCISE – Walking to school or riding a bicycle is a great way to get exercise before class.  It will help to sharpen a student’s focus in class and will add exercise to their daily routine as well.  If you drive your children to school but bussing is available, consider putting them on the bus instead.  It reduces your carbon footprint and allows them to socialize while en route with their friends.

DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE BRAND NEW?– Who wouldn’t want some new things on the first day of school? It’s great to show up on the first day with some smashing brand new outfit, but beyond day one, should you need everything to be brand new? There are a growing number of used clothing retailers that can insert a certain element of “eco-chic” to your child’s wardrobe and are way more affordable.

ECO BAGS – It was believed then that extra packaging was a sign of quality and prestige but would it hurt if, at least, we minimize the amount of non-recyclable items we send to the landfill? Nowadays, there are many eco-bags available when you shop for your children’s school supplies.

BE A LEADER – We must never forget that a child learns from their teachers and especially from their parents. Through leading them to live a healthy lifestyle, the earlier they learn and implement the eco-friendly habits into their lives. Making personal choices that embrace a green and sustainable lifestyle will provide examples for your children to learn and emulate from.

Planning to travel to Cagayan de Oro? Check in into the only eco-friendly serviced residences in Mindanao for your short-term and long-term accommodation requirements.

PAF-TOG 10, CLENRO Highlight Importance of Mangroves, Italpinas Joins Ocean Month Celebration

paf3

Last Saturday, May 9, the Philippine Air Force-Tactical Operations Group 10, together with several groups in the city, led the mangrove planting activity in Zone 8, Bulua, CdO. Italpinas and other green advocates come together as they planted 5000 mangrove seedlings around the shoreline. PAF-TOG 10 partnered with several groups namely SPOW EOD-K9, 8th ARCEN, 71st AFRG, CRSAFP, 4ID, PA, 10th FAB, ACDI-CDO, FABSLAI, AFPMBAI, JCI Kagayhaan, DepEd, REACT, KAMAU 4H-Opol, CLENRO, and Bulua Barangay Council.

With the theme, “Stand Up Save the Reefs”, the Ocean Month Celebration paves the way to highlight the importance of mangroves in the city.

“This is part of rehabilitating our very own Iponan River. Through planting mangroves around its vicinity, we can secure food for our farmers and fisher folks. Mangroves are our aquatic life’s nursery. We are not just saving the ocean, we are saving lives,” Edwin Dael, CLENRO-OIC, said.

paf4

On October 11, 2014 and February 7, 2015, Italpinas joined CLENRO and PAF-TOG 10 in the same activity at the coastal area in Bonbon, CdO. It was supported by schools, green advocates and some residents in the said barangay.

“To be part of a sustainable development and joining the city’s thrust to promote environmental advocacies is not just rewarding but also a testimony that Cagayan de Oro’s progress still goes hand in hand with nature. The mangrove planting activity was fun and fulfilling at the same time. Waking up early for a satisfying reason is truly worth it,” Gisselle Mantilla, ITPI Admin Officer, said.

Developed by Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-development Corporation (ITPI), Primavera Residences has been actively promoting green advocacies in the city and has won numerous local and international awards for its eco-friendly architecture. Featuring the best principles of passive cooling technology: shadow and sunlight control, wind cooling and shape performance, the project has been cited as one of Asia’s top 10 clean energy projects because of its capacity to help residents save as much as 32% on overall energy consumption.

Daniel Alcazar and Aldwin Ranario, Primavera’s sales associates said that their experience was way beyond all worldly things could give, it is more to saving what’s left and planting more to save the environment.

“During the storm surge, these mangroves helped lessen the damage. Together, we can collectively get resources and could help rebuild the city. Let’s all stand up and save our reefs,” Dael concluded.

Italpinas CEO speaks at FIABCI Asia Pacific Regional Secretariat Summit

 

fiabc-2

Italpinas CEO and executive chairman Arch. Romolo V. Nati was chosen to speak at the 19th Fédération Internationale des Administrateurs de Biens Conseils Immobiliers (FIABCI) Asia Pacific Regional Secretariat Summit held recently at the Marriott Hotel Manila last April 17, 2015.

With the theme “Cities of the Future: Asia Pacific”, FIABCI-Philippines brought together international and prominent speakers in a program filled with timely information pertaining to global real estate.

Speaking before members of the FIABCI community across Asia, Nati talked about the importance of sustainable design in the midst of climate change and the problems plaguing many homeowners in the Philippines. In the real estate industry today, energy efficiency efforts are now becoming an essential component in property developments.

“With both a housing deficit and a power shortage problem prevalent in the country, it just makes sense that the future of design is in sustainability. We need buildings that not only look good, but also function well to help alleviate those two problems. This is why green design is important,” stated Nati.

Nati also explained one of the biggest misconceptions people have about eco-friendly structures being expensive. “A lot of people don’t realize that green, sustainable design can be done without the staggering costs. We at ITPI practice what is called passive green design, meaning rather than use expensive equipment to make a structure green, we incorporate design elements to help, say, lower the cost of energy,” he explained. “This way we can make the units affordable for the middle class,” he added.

Primavera Residences, ITPI’s flagship development, is a primary example for sustainable development. The 10-storey mid-rise twin tower is a winner of the 2014 Asia Pacific Property Award for Best Mixed-Use Development in the Philippines. Located in Pueblo de Oro Township in CdO, Primavera Residences is modeled after an anthill with a hollow column in the middle of each tower allowing air to enter and circulate, creating a chimney effect that helps cool down the building, lowering air conditioning and electricity costs.

“Power is one of the key issues in Mindanao, so it just made sense, especially in that area, to have energy-saving features. This can be seen as a benchmark for energy-efficiency. If we can do it in Cagayan de Oro, we can do it for the rest of the country,” Arch. Nati emphasized.

Primavera Residences’ Tower 1 has been completed while its Tower 2 is 90% complete.

South China Morning Post features ITPI Executives

SCMP2

In the spotlight of today’s issue of South China Morning Post (SCMP) is a feature story on Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation (ITPI) and the company’s passion for sustainable developments in second-tier cities and regions in the Philippines.

Discovery Reports, together with SCMP, reports on ITPI’s efforts in offering investors a strategic inroad to the unrecognized yet hyper-prospective secondary places in the Philippines.

“We engage ourselves in secondary cities because we have seen that the big opportunities are now outside Metro Manila,” says Romolo Nati, ITPI’s chairman and architect. “There are more than 7,000 islands in this country, and hundreds of thriving cities that need sustainable mixed-use development.”

ITPI is an Italian-Filipino company that designs and develops sustainable property developments nationwide and Primavera Residences, its flagship development in Cagayan de Oro, recently won in the 2014 Asia Pacific Property Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Fusing Italian design and Filipino culture, ITPI creates high performance properties while protecting the natural environment. Taking inspiration from nature and cultural and social conditions, and integrating this into architectural design, the company brings an unprecedented philosophy to Philippine real estate.

Jolliville seeks new opportunities to develop and transform nation

“Environmentally friendly living must not be made expensive,” says Jojo Leviste, ITPI’s president. “If a building is designed to perform, then natural elements at its location can deliver results that would otherwise consume energy such as simultaneous cooling, lighting and ventilation.” The company’s first project, the Primavera Residences in Cagayan de Oro, attests to this.

Primavera Residences reduces energy consumption and living costs with solar panels, strategic channeling of natural airflow, and shading features that are designed according to the sun’s paths at the building’s precise latitude. Targeting the country’s rising middle class, most of the development’s units cost less than US$100,000.

ITPI is aiming to expand in Northern Luzon, Batangas, and the Visayas. The company is also working on its initial public offering (IPO) in a bid to attract foreign investor interested in the Philippines. “We want to be recognized for staying true to our values and to the passion the moved us from the very beginning,” Nati says. “We are proof that a company can do good while still being profitable,” he continued.
