Community Development And Social Involvement
RLove is committed to preserve the environment and to take action to minimize RLC's environmental footprint. In line with this, Robinsons Malls General Trias and Las Pinas partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for the Solid Waste Management Project. A solid waste management scheme was implemented to turn residual plastics into useable items such as garbage bins, chairs, and tables. Applying the circular economy model for sustainable waste management, the project diverts generated wastes that would have leaked to nature and brings them back to circularity, thereby reducing trash. RLove plans to roll this out in every Robinsons mall to further contribute to the fulfillment of its environmental sustainability goals. To further promote a circular economy, Robinsons Forum organized the Caritas Donation Drive where lost and found items may be donated. The assortment of clothes, books, toys, bags, and umbrellas gathered through the project will be used to fund the various programs of Caritas Manila for the poor. RLC also hosted Locally Sourced in 32 malls nationwide to promote sustainable businesses. Executed in partnership with the Department of Agriculture, the series of exhibits showcased products from local entrepreneurs who integrate environment-friendly practices in their business operations to minimize carbon footprint.
