Yesterday at ELJ Building in Quezon City, environmental advocate Gina Lopez welcomed bloggers to a merienda cena to promote G Stuff. Ms. Lopez put up the store to help the communities improve their living conditions while preserving the environment.
G Stuff is a special line of products that are natural, clean and healthy. It was created out of the desire to provide communities with opportunities to market excellent local products which may be used as main ingredients and raw materials for the production for premium products produced under the G stuff brand. G Stuff sources its ingredients from communities that adhere to sustainable farming practices. It envisions to eradicate poverty while protecting the natural environment.
Ms. Lopez said G stands for many things not only for Gina. G stands for good, as G Stuff's line says, "It’s good for you. It’s good for the country. It’s good for the community. It’s good for everything" because G Stuff is deeply engraved with the principles of Bantay Kalikasan’s Green Initiative – a movement that works with various sectors to create and promote ecotourism sites all over the country at the same time to provide sustainable livelihood to communities through the use of abundant natural resources. The G Stuff products’ main ingredients come from nature. Virgin Coconut Oil from Brooke’s Point Palawan, pili nuts from Bicol and essential oils from Cagayan de Oro and Butuan are just some of the many examples.
G Stuff products include massage oils, chocolate truffles, salad dressings and gluten-free tarts moringa varieties of facial soap and fluid, night cream, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body scrub. Premium recipes by top chefs in the country are also being offered in the store. These are Chef Myrna Segismundo’s carabao cheese with pili nut and cherry tomato marmalade; Chef Gilbert Pangilinan’s red onion & Palawan and wafu dressings and; Chef Him Uy’s pili trail mix. There will be upcoming recipes from Sandy Daza, Glenda Barretto, Jessie Sincioco and Robby Goco. All the recipes are guaranteed free of chemicals, preservatives, white sugar and white flour.
Green Initiative’s 2014 Summer Destinations are also set to be launched. These are the ecotourism areas of Palawan, Sibuyan Island in Romblon and areas in Bicol. Ironically, the impoverished communities are situated in the picturesque sceneries in the Philippines. Upon surveying the economic and tourism possibilities, Bantay Kalikasan has developed ecotourism destinations in the areas of Palawan, Sibuyan Island in Romblon and areas in Bicol. Tourists and travelers are sure to enjoy travel packages, activities and accommodation that are guaranteed to be safe, comfortable and yet, can bring the explorer in them.
The combined funds from G Stuff and Green Initiative’s summer destinations will be utilized to further cultivate more ecotourism sites and to organize trainings on manufacture and production for communities.
