Love Pantry of DENR-PENRO Marinduque
During the Monday convocation on February 27, 2023, DENR-PENRO Marinduque launched a "Love Pantry". The Love Pantry of Pre-Loved Items is a great initiative that promotes love for environment by encouraging the reuse and recycling of gently used items. Employees can shop at The Pantry for anything from bags, shoes, and formal clothing to swimsuits, silverware, kitchenware, women accessories, seedlings, etc. The goal of this pantry is to promote a sustainable lifestyle by sharing and redistributing no longer needed items from donors.
This activity is in line with the Zero Waste Lifestyle and 5S Day, both of which promotes sustainable living and reduce waste. Instead of throwing away gently used items, employees can donate them to the pantry, where they will be put to good use. Anyone who need those items can take them, and thus, everyone benefits. This kind of sharing is a way to build team spirit and bring employees together. PENRO employees can reduce waste, save money, and live a more meaningful life by donating and sharing slightly or unused items.
Overall, Love Pantry was a big success, and PENRO Marinduque would like to promote this event in order to demonstrate good practice and to influence others. It is an excellent example of how collective action can lead to positive behavioral change. This has also served as a model of kindness and compassion in the workplace. Not only that, but it has successfully raised employee awareness about the importance of upcycling and sustainability. This accomplishment is the result of everyone's cooperation and commitment. ###
