NESTEA Love the Beach: A Call to Chillax Responsibly
(Manila, Philippines, 15 March 2016) To officially kick off summer’s most anticipated event in Boracay, NESTEA raises the bar by giving back to the beach we love as it launches the NESTEA Love the Beach campaign on March 15 at the Palace Pool Club.
Now on its 19th year, NESTEA Love the Beach takes the lead in preserving Boracay’s shores through responsible tourism and various activities that keep the island clean.
To make the advocacy bigger and more sustainable this year, NESTEA is partnering with Boracay Foundation Inc. (BFI), a non-profit organization composed of over 150 members representing Boracay’s leading establishments, residents, and expatriates, which aims to bolster the island’s environmental, business, and social needs. Together with BFI and NESTEA brand ambassadors Jessy Mendiola, Tom Taus, Joyce Pring, Sam YG and Arisse De Santos, NESTEA is enjoining everyone to take part in coral rescue & replanting and shore & underwater cleanups.
“With the NESTEA Love the Beach campaign, NESTEA aims to encourage everyone to chillax responsibly—that is, to instill that sense of accountability and stewardship that is required of partygoers, tourists, locals, and consumers alike to keep Boracay one of the most beautiful and loved beaches in the world, while still setting the bar for fun, refreshing, and relaxing experiences.”, says Sherilla Bayona, Business Executive Manager for the Beverages Business Unit.
Everyone is given a chance to have fun with NESTEA ambassadors while giving back to the beach by signing up with the NESTEA Love the Beach squad of their choice assigned on each day of the three-part shore cleanup sessions. Interested volunteers can log on to www.nestealovethebeach.com.ph, powered by PLDT ALPHA Enterprise & SMART, to register and get more information.
Further championing its love for the beach, a portion of the proceeds from the NESTEA pitcher and merchandise selling will be donated to the Boracay Foundation Inc. to fund a beach cleaning machine that will help keep Boracay clean not only during summer but all year round.
