Summit Water New Packaging to Save 1.5M Tons in CO2

350 ml and 500 ml bottle caps to have less plastic

 Summit Natural Drinking Water, in its continuing effort to inspire Filipinos to thirst for more, has reached for a new goal – to lower its carbon footprint. In a simple but effective packaging change, Summit 500 ml and 350 ml bottles now sport a more streamlined cap that saves almost 500,000 tons of manufactured PET a year.

This is equivalent to the amount of carbon absorbed by 3.7 million trees, or removing over 100,000 cars from the road for one year. The initiative is part of Summit Water’s latest campaign – Thirst for More, by defying limits, stepping out of comfort zones, and going beyond the norm. By being conscious of the environment, Summit Water has upped its game, encouraging Filipinos to do the same.

Says Abe Cipriano, AVP for Marketing, Non-Alcoholic Beverages at Asia Brewery, “Thirst for more is about pushing your boundaries and finding new ways to one-up yourself. For Summit Natural Drinking Water, this small change has a great positive effect on the environment, and ultimately, on all of us. We encourage everyone to start with small steps to achieve even bigger goals.”

The Secret to Taking The Plunge? Confidence!

Living the life you’ve always dreamed of begins with confidence. If you feel that it’s the one thing you’re missing, here are a few steps that will help you gain self-assurance.

Know your strengths and weaknesses. Confidence comes from knowing who you are, which means being able to determine both your strengths and weaknesses. By being in touch with both, you can make better life choices. This is also a good gauge on things you need to improve on and work hard at, helping you create a better version of yourself which you can be proud of.

Expect your success. Pessimism is not just draining: it also undermines your performance. Expecting the worst possible outcome can dampen your spirits and make you more worrisome rather than hopeful. Choosing to think that the outcome will be positive and successful helps in building your confidence.

Take risks. Ironically, taking risks helps develop us into becoming better people. There’s no confidence found in doing the same things over and over again. We develop who we are by doing things that we don’t naturally do. By overcoming things that used to scare us, we develop a stronger sense of self, something needed in becoming more confident.

Confidence also comes from having a strong support system, like your friends and family. A longtime partner of risk-takers everywhere who like taking the plunge is Nestea in a Bottle.

When Your Second Time Seems Like the First Time...

This week, my body's new resident enters his/her 10th week and is doing good in making me feel sleepy all day and sleepy all night which leaves the house and the work late on due. I actually have a valid reason to just lay there and read a book.
This is not my first time but I could vouch now that every pregnancy sure is uniquely special. I think it's easier and harder for the second time. Easier because you kinda have a clue of what's to expect and harder because before it's the baby inside, the house and the work. Now it's the baby inside, the house, the work, and the toddler, who can't stop himself from running around. Ha! Twists like these makes me smile and cringe at the same time, I am loving this roller coaster ride of life called motherhood!
To make this expansion of our nuclear family extra extra special, I'll end up this post with a little giveaway.
I will be giving away one spiral Belle de Jour Power Planner 2015 which includes a Perks of a Bella booklet, a BDJ Lifestyle card and stickers inside. I've been a BDJ bella for a couple of years now and it did help me organize my chaotic lifestyle being a freelance work-at-home mom without any helper.
