Green Fashion Revolution is a Wealth on Waste program under BetterWorld’s Waste Management focus area. This year’s GFR cycle used a total of 200 kilos of wastes gathered from the different Aboitiz business units. By staging the GFR on September 26, Aboitiz joined the Global Day of Action on Climate Change to help combat environmental degradation through proper waste management.
Sponsored by the Aboitiz Foundation, GFR encourages people to practice the 3Rs – reduce, reuse, and recycle.
