Quick and Easy Tips for a Sulit and Sustainable Holiday Season

Filipinos are known to celebrate the longest and grandest holiday season. More often than not, this comes at an economic and environmental expense, having to spend more on food and gifts – but it doesn’t always have to be like that. Having an affordable and sustainable celebration can be an option and a great way for families to bond together.

Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC Group) shares a few tips on how Filipinos can have a meaningful holiday season- the budget-friendly and eco-friendly way. APC Group General Manager of Corporate Planning and Public Relations Roann Co said, “We, at Ajinomoto, believe that there is no small contribution when it comes to caring for the environment. Through our tips below, we hope to empower Filipinos in giving the gift of sustainability this holiday season.” 

Here are some eco-friendly and meaningful ways to celebrate the holidays:

  • Recycled gift wraps and Do-It-Yourself gifts 


Using old magazines and newspapers as an alternative gift wrapper isn’t a new practice to Filipinos. But, it is definitely something that we should further encourage among our families and friends. Not only does it help the environment, it is also easy on the pocket too! 

Moreover, if you’re still wondering what gifts you should give, you can check some of the winning DIY projects during the online contest for Ilabas ang SustainAbilidad campaign such as the apron made from the wrappers of used Ajinomoto products and a DIY toy kitchen set for kids who want to learn to cook. You can also try re-inventing some of the projects to make it more creative and more heart-felt.

  • Solar-powered string lights

Christmas decorations are incomplete without bright lights at home and on the streets. Retire your vintage decors by using solar-powered lights which give you the same merry evenings with less electricity consumption and environmental impact. And since these solar-powered decors don’t add to your electricity bill, you may also consider maintaining this type of ambient lights on your garden and terraces. 

Beyond homes, Ajinomoto has also introduced solar energy to its Bulacan factory and it is projected to offset around 865 metric tons of carbon dioxide which is equivalent to reducing 2,352,456 miles in vehicle travel per year.

  • Prepare delicious, nutritious, and eco-friendly holiday meals

What makes Filipino holidays special is the variety of food options planned and prepared by home cooks. Bring out the flavor of your favorite handaan dishes like Pinoy spaghetti, lumpiang shanghai, adobo, kaldereta, and more with the new AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning 45g paper pack. The new packaging is made from a natural paper material that can be planted, grown, harvested, and then replanted which means you’re not only preparing delicious food for the family but also helping the environment.  Continue reading

Organique Acai Help Solve Psoriasis Problems

Wellness Wednesdays episode was again helpful to viewers who learned health related information, tips and remedies for a healthy lifestyle. In the latest episode, the topic was about psoriasis, its connection to our immune system and inflammatory responses. Doctor Sarah Balba-Cabodil, a dermatologist and recent guest speaker of Wellness Wednesdays episode shared information about psoriasis. According to her, “Psoriasis is a chronic skin infection that develops through a complex relationship between genetics and the environment”.  It can cause parts of our system to be hyperactive and anything that triggers the immune system can cause psoriasis to flare up even stress.

When our body is stressed, it releases an output of pro-inflammatory proteins and psoriasis is extremely reactive to this which results in the immune system’s hyperactivity, heightened inflammation and an increase of visually obvious psoriasis symptoms. If you have psoriatic disease, you are already more prone to anxiety and depression. This cycle affects your everyday life and your relationship with the world. That’s why you need to attack both stress and psoriasis because each makes the other worse—you must break the cycle at both ends. Continue reading
