Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. unveiled the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23, marking a new era of Samsung Galaxy’s ultimate premium phone experience. Samsung Galaxy's epic camera gives users more freedom to explore their creativity, like capturing truly cinematic Nightography videos with transformative AI. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy” unleashes premium experiences, including groundbreaking AI, future-ready mobile gaming feature and powerfully sustained game play with the world’s fastest mobile graphics. On the Galaxy S23 Ultra, an embedded S Pen that many long-time Samsung Galaxy users know and love offers more possibilities for productivity, notetaking, hobbies and more. All the Galaxy S23 series’ new standard-setting innovations are housed within a striking design that advances the company’s sustainability commitment with more components made using recycled materials than any other Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

We’re on a mission to redefine peak performance by bringing together powerful, lasting innovations and sustainability."

A Samsung Galaxy Camera with More Megapixels and Extensive Creative Controls, From Day to Night

Galaxy S23 Ultra makes it easier for any level of photographer to capture phenomenal content. It offers Samsung Galaxy’s most advanced camera system, tailored for nearly any lighting conditions and engineered to render incredible detail. Improved Nightography capabilities transform how the Galaxy S series optimizes photos and videos in a wide range of ambient conditions. Filming a favorite song at a concert, snapping a selfie at the aquarium, or grabbing a group shot of friends at dinner — users can get sharper images and videos. Visual noise that usually ruins low-light images is corrected by a new AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that enhances object details and color tone.

In a Samsung Galaxy-first, Galaxy S23 Ultra boasts a new 200MP Adaptive Pixel sensor that captures epic moments with incredible precision. It uses pixel binning to support multiple levels of high-resolution processing at once.5 And because selfie cameras are more important than ever to how we communicate today, the Galaxy S23 series introduces fast autofocus and our first Super HDR selfie camera, jumping from 30fps to 60fps, for noticeably better front-facing images and videos.

For users who want the ultimate creative control and customization, the Galaxy S23 series offers a suite of tools that differentiate any photography experience. The Expert RAW app,6 available exclusively on Samsung Galaxy, enables DSLR-style image shooting and editing in RAW and JPEG — no bulky camera equipment is required. Users can experiment with Multiple exposures photo art or capture a clear view of the Milky Way with Astrophoto settings, and now, after being downloaded on Galaxy S23, Expert RAW features can be accessed within Samsung’s native Camera app. Meanwhile, the new zoom capabilities on Galaxy Watch series’ Camera Controller app empower users to capture a perfectly framed shot right from their wrist.

Additional camera advancements include:

· Low-light or in situations that would normally create a blur, videos are stable with doubled optical image stabilizer (OIS) angles in all directions on Galaxy S23 Ultra.

· Recording videos feel more cinematic with enhanced 8K video at 30 frames per second with a wider angle.

· Advanced, object-based AI analyzes each detail in the frame, even down to minute facial features such as hair and eyes, to carefully reflect a person's dynamic characteristics.

· For an even more enhanced video experience, the new 360 Audio Recording feature on Galaxy Buds2 Pro creates multi-dimensional sound.


On Galaxy S23+ and Galaxy S23, the iconic Samsung Galaxy camera also gets an upgraded look. The contour housing has been removed, marking a new era of essential Galaxy design that makes the entire series stand out.

Premium Performance Makes Way for the Future of Mobile Gaming

For creators and gamers alike, the desire to push limits and constantly reimagine what’s possible requires technology that outpaces expectations. Together, Samsung and Qualcomm optimized the Samsung Galaxy experience with the brand new “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy”, the most powerful and efficient platform ever in a Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the fastest Snapdragon available today. Meanwhile, on the Galaxy S23 Ultra, a 5000mAh battery powers a larger camera than Galaxy S22 Ultra without increasing the device’s size.

A newly designed CPU micro architecture boosts the processing abilities of the Galaxy S23 series by about 30 percent compared to the Galaxy S22 series. Capturing stunning photos in low light requires trillions of calculations per second, so Samsung Galaxy’s highly efficient NPU architecture has been optimized by 49 percent to balance performance and power while using an AI algorithm to help users take epic photos and videos. 

One of the most significant improvements to the Galaxy S23 series is the optimized GPU, which is approximately 41 percent faster compared to Galaxy 22 series and designed especially for power users.

In anticipation of the future of ultimate digital realism, Galaxy S23 Ultra comes ready to support real-time ray tracing as it comes to the mobile gaming mainstream. Users will be able to see noticeably more lifelike renderings of scenes, thanks to technology that simulates and tracks every ray of light. Plus, Samsung Galaxy’s vapor chamber, now bigger and on every Galaxy S23 series model, keeps your gaming marathon going.

All this power underpins Galaxy S23 Ultra’s expansive 6.8-inch20 edge display with a reduced curvature to create a larger and flatter surface area for the best visual experience on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Samsung Galaxy’s unique Enhanced comfort feature allows users to adjust color tones and contrast levels, lessening eye strain from screen time at night. Vision booster now adjusts at three levels of lighting instead of two to combat brightness and glare in daylight.


Designed with the Planet in Mind

The Galaxy S23 series raises the bar for premium technology that can enrich people’s lives and help contribute to a healthier planet. Since the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung Galaxy increases its use of recycled materials from six internal components in Galaxy S22 Ultra to 12 internal and external components in Galaxy S23 Ultra. Galaxy S23 series also has a wider variety of recycled materials than any other Galaxy smartphone, including pre-consumer recycled aluminum and glass and post-consumer recycled plastics sourced from discarded fishing nets, PET bottles and water barrels.

The new S series is the first to market Corning Gorilla® Glass Victus 2, offering durability for long-term use and consisting of an average of 22 percent pre-consumer recycled content25. Plus, every Galaxy S23 smartphone comes in a redesigned packaging box which applied paper made with 100 percent recycled paper.

With the Galaxy S23 series, Samsung Galaxy is doing more to minimize its impact on the environment without compromising quality and aesthetic. The Galaxy S23 series is UL ECOLOGO® certified, meaning that the product has been certified for reduced environmental impact.

For users who want to extend the life of their device, the Galaxy S23 series’ premium experience can be sustained through the years with four generations of OS upgrades and five years of security updates. To enhance its longevity, users can also leverage programs such as Samsung Care, a support service for accidental damages, repairs and more.

User-Friendly Security and Privacy Enable a Transparent Experience without Compromise

Secure and private experiences are the foundation of the Galaxy S23 series. Every smartphone comes with Samsung's end-to-end Samsung Knox protection, which has received more government and industry certifications than any other mobile device, platform, or solution on the market. The Security and Privacy Dashboard on Samsung Galaxy gives users full visibility over who has access to their data and how it’s being used. With just a glance, it’s easy to see if personal data is at risk and receive simple prompts to change settings for a more secure experience. Users can also decide exactly which applications and programs get access to their data and how it can be used.

For an added layer of security, Knox Vault, which was first introduced on the Galaxy S21 series, protects critical information on the Galaxy S23 series by isolating it from the rest of the device, including the OS, for added protection against vulnerabilities.

More Freedom and Flexibility for Connected Lifestyles

At the core of the Samsung Galaxy S series’ premium experience is the uncompromising innovation of Samsung Galaxy Ultra. But the power and creative capabilities of Samsung Galaxy Ultra don’t stop at smartphones. With the brand new, first-ever Galaxy Book3 Ultra, and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, users can now enjoy an ultimate Samsung Galaxy’s ecosystem.

Across every Galaxy S series model, connected experiences get added benefits. Samsung Multi Control29, which connects mouse and keyboard functionality between a Samsung Galaxy PC and tablet, now extends to Galaxy S23 Ultra, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 for the ultimate flexibility between devices. Plus, enhanced text usability makes it easy to copy and paste text, like URLs, from one device to another to pick up an activity on another device. On Galaxy S23 Ultra, Google Meet paired with Samsung Notes and the embedded S Pen now make video calls even more collaborative. With Google Meet live sharing, participants can simultaneously co-edit30 a document from each of their Android devices, rather than viewing a shared screen.31

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Vice President of the Philippines and Secretary of Education Sara Z. Duterte advocated for education reforms through unity and shared education goals as she was elected as SEAMEO council president for 2023 to 2025.

“The Philippines humbly accepts the challenge in leading its ASEAN counterparts in the post-pandemic recovery by pursuing much-needed reforms to our education system, ensuring that these fit within our priority, education agenda, outline, and the SEAMEO Strategic Plan 2021 to 2030,” VP-Sec. Duterte said in her speech.

“I am pleased to note that your unwavering unity in our shared cause for enhanced cooperation in education, science, and culture has strengthened and allowed us to rise above the difficulties we faced within our organizations and our respective institutions,” she added.

The Education Secretary thanked and acknowledged the efforts made by the former president, H.E Chan Chun Sing of Singapore, that led to education reforms that helped learners worldwide cope with the effects of the pandemic.

“As we move forward to a new chapter of cooperation for the greater good of the ASEAN Region and our respective countries it is my hope that the gains we have achieved in the past years will enable a new way for a proactive and unprecedented region of developments in our priority areas,” VP-Sec. Sara stated.

As VP-Sec. Sara assumed her post as the head of the Council, she called for the efforts of the members to make impactful changes for their learners. She promoted the regional operation mechanism that will enable the ASEAN countries to work together by sharing and championing their best practices in their respective education systems.

Duterte also emphasized the importance of the discussions of the education ministers and how they can contribute to greater capacity for a brighter future for children.

“We will take advantage of our diversity and varied experiences to rethink our current practices to innovate and make policies, plans, and frameworks that will further strengthen our existing education systems. I look forward to productive discussions with you throughout this presidency as we work towards our shared education goals in harmony and solidarity,” the concurrent Education Chief and SEAMEO Council President noted.

Duterte also acknowledged SEAMEO as one of the most proactive partners of DepEd in support of teachers, researchers, and learners.

“Together, let us pursue our mission to achieve equitable, quality, and inclusive education through effective collaboration and leadership. Together, let us work for the brighter future of our children, our respective nations, and the whole of ASEAN,” she said.

DepEd, DPWH renew partnership in building basic education facilities

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

The Department of Education (DepEd) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) renewed their partnership in strengthening the School Building Program (SBP) to address the nationwide classroom gaps.

During the 2023 National Planning Conference: School Building Program (NPC-SBP), DepEd Undersecretary for School Infrastructure and Facilities Epimaco V. Densing III and DPWH Assistant Secretary for Regional Operations Antonio V. Molano Jr., represented their agencies in renewing the partnership in the implementation of the School Building Program under the Basic Education Facilities Fund of the department.

Vice President and Secretary of Education Sara Z. Duterte, in her Basic Education Report 2023, mentioned that the lack of school infrastructure and resources remains one of the biggest challenges the basic education sector faces.

In response to this, VP-Sec. Duterte launched the MATATAG Agenda which includes the establishment of the School Infrastructure and Facilities strand, headed by Undersecretary Epimaco V. Densing III, entirely devoted to addressing long-standing issues on education facilities and infrastructure.

“Together, let us work harder to build more schools and classrooms for our Filipino children and youth so they can learn, develop, and realize their full potential,” VP-Sec. Duterte said.

Meanwhile, some significant roles and responsibilities in the partnership include DPWH processing the necessary permits and clearances, ensuring the construction of complete buildings, and assigning a DPWH Project Engineer to confirm the findings of DepEd.

On the other hand, DepEd, through its Division Engineer, shall assist DPWH in the needed documents for application, approval, and issuance of permits, monitor project implementation, particularly in the critical stages of construction, and inform the DPWH Project Engineer of observed defaults in the construction.

Furthermore, the agreement has likewise noted the reporting arrangements and task force mobilization of both Program Management Offices (PMOs) at the Regional Offices and quality assurance teams.

In addition, the direct release of funds to the DPWH Central Office for the construction and repair of school buildings will be based on the approved list and Sub-Allotment Releasing Order (SARO) issued by the Department of Budget and Management.

“Kaya kailangan po namin kayo sa pakikipaglaban na ito. Malinaw na malinaw po ang importansiya ng pakikiisa ng bawat isa sa atin,” Usec. Densing said.

Spearheaded by the Office of the Undersecretary for School Infrastructure and Facilities - EFD, the four-day NPC-SBP, hosted by DepEd Olongapo City Division, DepEd Region III (Central Luzon), aims to establish concrete directions for the overall short, medium, and long-term planning of the SBP.

Art at the National Science Complex

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

“People don’t usually think of scientists as artists, but much of what we do is shaped and informed by art—and vice versa,” said University of the Philippines - Diliman College of Science (UPD-CS) Dean Giovanni Tapang, touching on the various art activities taking place this February across the National Science Complex.

Every year, by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 683 of 1991, National Arts Month (NAM) is held to fete artistic excellence and pay tribute to the uniqueness and diversity of Filipino heritage and culture. The UPD-CS joined the celebration this year with a slew of activities aimed at students, faculty, and the general public to inspire appreciation of the intersections of science and art.

“In a way, science is all about finding patterns in the world. Art enables us to discover, understand, and hopefully even utilize such symmetries. But conversely, and perhaps more importantly, art also helps us bring science to the public by making our discoveries more relatable and engaging,” Tapang explained.

Celebrations at the National Science Complex took off even before NAM started, with the Institute of Biology (IB) celebrating its 37th anniversary last January 30 and 31 under the theme, “Isang Pagpupugay: Pagbubuklod ng Sining at Agham.”

The anniversary celebration jumpstarted a February-long exhibit at the IB Auditorium featuring paintings by the Institute’s students, faculty, and family. A wide complement of talent is on display, from detailed anatomical drawings to whimsical slices of life. Also on display are intricate sketches of the Philippines’ many species of Rafflesia flowers. With over a dozen endemic species, the country is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots for this striking flower, which can sometimes grow as large as a bedside table. The exhibit will be open to the public until February 28.

With NAM well underway, the Institute went on to organize a science communication workshop for the College’s researchers, faculty, and staff. Taking a page from theater and stage acting, the facilitators from training group PlayMD explored storytelling and improvisation techniques to help scientists connect better with the public.

The UPD-CS will be capping the NAM celebrations with a free public webinar entitled, “Intersections: How scientists use art to explore the world” on February 24. It will feature a variety of scientists involved in the arts, with topics including watercolor painting and plant morphology through the eyes and hands of a scientist-painter; musings on the inner lives of starfish from a marine biologist; chemistry and colors in the context of local textiles and fabrics; and the synergies of art, science, and innovation.

Vice President and Secretary of Education Sara Z. Duterte calls for unity and urgency in addressing learning gaps and education equality in her message during the opening of the Southeast Asian Education Ministers for the 52nd SEAMEO Council Conference (SEAMEC).

“We need to act now. We cannot afford to waste more time. As education leaders, we cannot allow a single child to miss out on the opportunity and benefits of learning and the wonders of being able to use it positively,” VP Secretary Sara Z. Duterte said before the SEAMEC delegations in attendance.

“As education leaders, we have a huge responsibility. The decisions we make today will determine the quality of life in our countries and the entire ASEAN Region, and the ripple effect in these decisions can reverberate for generations to come,” she added.

The Education Chief made the call for all ASEAN leaders to embrace ‘bayanihan’, urging the members of the council to address the pressing issues of equitable access to education and the post recovery from the pandemic.

She also presented the MATATAG Agenda of the Department, highlighting the commitment of the agency to improve the quality of basic education in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, outgoing SEAMEO council president, H.E Mr. Chan Chun Sing from Singapore presented the innovative ways the ASEAN countries coped with the pandemic and how the lessons it brought shaped the landscape of their education.

Carrying the theme: Transformation through Learning Exchange: Building Resilient Systems as a Region, the three-day conference will discuss the transformation of education as demanded by the challenges faced by the sector, stemming from the damages brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Part of the mission of the conference is to highlight the need for resiliency in many countries and their education systems. SEAMEC is one of the platforms where education champions are given the opportunity to discuss and share their best practices for strengthening their education systems.

Additionally, the conference will witness the election of VP Secretary Sara Duterte as the council president from 2023 to 2025.

Learn The Art of Meme-Making with Meme Maker Tool

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Memes are all over the internet these days. Whether you’re scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, or Reddit, you’ll probably come across some of these funny pictures at one point or another. They have become so popular that they have even entered the mainstream culture as a whole.

Memes are a great way to make fun of something, share an opinion, or just have some fun. They can be used for all kinds of purposes and they’re perfect for expressing how you feel about something. However, creating a good meme can be difficult. You need to know how to use your camera well, have access to editing software, and have the right ideas in mind before you start making one.

The popularity of memes has led to the creation of many meme-making tools, which are designed to help you create your own memes. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at one such tool called Meme Maker Tool.

You Can Become A Meme Master With This Meme Maker Tool!

Meme Maker Tool is a free tool that allows you to create memes straight from your browser. There’s no need for any downloads or extensions—all you need is an internet connection and a few minutes of your time. The tool allows you to choose from a variety of templates, customize them with text and images, then share them with your friends through social media or email. You can also download the image files if you want to use them offline.

If you’ve ever wanted to create your own memes but didn’t know how, now is the time. You don’t need any special skills —just a little bit of time and creativity.

The Rise of Memes.

Memes are extremely popular online today, especially among younger users. The word “meme” was first coined by Richard Dawkins in his 1976 book, “The Selfish Gene.” He defined it as a cultural idea or behavior that spreads from person to person within a society. Over time, different definitions have emerged but most agree that memes consist of a piece of content (usually an image) with some form of humorous intent.

In the early days of online culture, memes were mostly used to express ideas and opinions in a humorous way. But today, memes have become more than just funny images or videos. They are also used as tools for social commentary or political activism. And they can even be used as a means of promoting products or services.

And now, the rise of memes has made them a part of marketing campaigns. In fact, brands today are using memes to engage consumers in a more personal way and expand their reach on social media.

Memes have become such a powerful marketing tool that some companies even hire meme creators to create custom content for their campaigns. And this trend is likely to continue in the years ahead. As memes become even more popular and widely used, there will be an increased need for professional meme makers.
How to make a meme?

It’s not hard to make a meme. If you have access to a computer, then all you need is an idea for a meme and some free time. You can also find plenty of resources online such as video editor tool that will help you create your own memes quickly and easily.

The first step in making a meme is to come up with an idea. You can use a current event, trend or news story as the basis for your meme. Or you can create a completely original idea that’s based on something that happened to you or something that your friends said recently.

Once you have an idea, it’s time to start creating your meme. You can do this by using a meme maker tool or by editing an image that you find online.

The next step is to add text and/or an image to your meme. You should choose a font that’s easy to read and matches the style of your meme. And if you are using an image, make sure that it fits well with your idea, as well as being appropriate for Facebook (no nudity or profanity). Once you have created a few different versions of your meme, it’s time to post them on your social media accounts.

Why Make a Meme?

Memes are a great way to get your message across. They are often funny or witty, making them popular with other people who see your posts. Memes also help you stand out from the crowd on social media. If everyone else is posting links and photos, then you can use memes to make your page more interesting.

Memes are also a great way to build your brand online. If people see a funny image of you on their newsfeed and then click through to your website, you’re more likely to get new followers or customers. You can also add great music using a music video maker to make it more fun and entertaining.

Memes are also a good way to engage with your audience. You can create a meme that makes fun of something in the news or on social media, which will get people talking about it and sharing your page.

Finally, memes are just fun. They can cheer you up when you’re having a bad day, and they’re a great way to entertain your audience.

How to Use a Meme Maker?

There are several different types of meme makers online. Some are simple to use, while others have more complex features.

The process of using a meme maker will depend upon what type of meme maker tool or software you will be using. Some meme makers are very easy to use, requiring only the input of text and images. Other meme-making tools will require you to upload your own photo or video before you can use them in your meme.

The most important thing to consider when using a meme maker is whether or not you want to create your own memes from scratch, or if you would prefer to use a pre-made template. If you’re brand new to the concept of memes and how they work, then it may be best for you to start with one of these pre-made templates.

These templates are made by experienced meme makers, and they will contain all of the elements that you need in order to create a funny or effective meme. The best part about using pre-made templates is that they will make it much easier for you to learn how to use a meme maker. You won’t have to worry about learning how everything works from scratch because there will be instructions available for you in each template itself.

On the other hand, if you are an expert in using a meme maker and you know how to make a meme, then you can use blank templates. The blank templates are made for people who have experience with making memes and who want to create their own unique content.

Where Can I Find A Free Online Meme Maker Tool?

There are many different online tools that allow you to create memes. Some of these tools are free while others require you to pay a small fee in order to use them. If you’re just starting out with meme-making, then it’s probably best for you to start with one of the free options because they will give you an idea of what it takes to make a good meme.

Another way to find a free online meme maker tool is on the websites of popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. These are the two most popular sites where memes are shared, so it makes sense that they would have their own tools to help users create them.

If you’re looking for a more advanced tool that allows you to create memes with ease, then it might be worth your while to pay for one of the paid options. These are usually more comprehensive and provide users with plenty of features that can help them create better memes.

Final Takeaway:

A meme is a term used to describe one image with humorous text written on it and made to go viral. A meme maker tool is the kind of online service that enables you to make memes and edit images.

Meme designing is fun but designing it using words will be very difficult and hard to create. Because there will be a lot of words that you need to re-arrange and increase the intonation of your words. Luckily, online tools like meme maker are here to help you in this regard.

Mars Petcare launches ‘Fur The Best’ SWAP consumer recycling program in the Philippines

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Mars Petcare partners with Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX) as part of its global efforts to increase the circularity of packaging waste

Mars Petcare recently announced a packaging recycling initiative in the Philippines as part of its global efforts to create a circular economy for plastic packaging where it doesn’t become waste. The collaboration with Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX) and retailer Pet Express is called “Fur The Best”, which is an extension of the “SWAP Recycling” initiative from Thailand that will enable the collection and recycling of mixed post-consumer flexible plastic packaging waste into useful products. It’s one of the many sustainability initiatives that Mars Petcare is running to give pet parents the opportunity to recycle their plastic packaging.

At Mars, we take our responsibility for sustainable packaging seriously, so we’re working globally toward 100 percent recyclable, reusable or compostable plastic packaging and reducing our use of virgin plastic by 25%. To reach our goal, we’ll need not only recyclable materials, but we also need collection and recycling infrastructure in place and the right consumer behavior to make it happen.

According to the 2021 Who Cares, Who Does report by Kantar Philippines, 75% of Filipinos actively seek out brands that offer ways to reduce their impact on the environment. In the Philippines, the passage of the Extended Producer Responsibility (RA 11898) law has heightened attention on solid waste management, particularly of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods post-consumer waste.

Petcare commits to a sustainable business–Johny Racoma, General Manager of Mars Philippines, highlighted how Mars Petcare takes a sustainable approach in dealing with the plastic pet-food bags. He was joined by Ian Miguel Garcia, Business Development Manager of PCX, who demonstrated the step-by-step process of how to swap empty pet-food packages. All recycled materials will be handed to PCX, the recycling arm of the program where the materials will be recycled and upcycled.

Ngo also shared the recycling drop-off points are available in 15 of the participating Pet Express locations in in Metro Manila. Customers can redeem the Php 100 discount until May 31, 2023.

Johnny Racoma, General Manager for Mars Petcare in the Philippines, highlighted that Mars Petcare aims to meet consumer desire for more sustainable packaging options. He said, “Consumers continue to be concerned not just about the content of what their pets eat but also about reducing their environmental impact.”

Packaging plays many vital roles: protecting ingredients, preserving freshness, conveying nutrition and health information, and differentiating brands. However, it also poses real challenges. This means it can end up in landfills, as litter, or even find its way into the environment.

As a leader in manufacturing, Mars Petcare believes it is important to work to address environmental challenges and create a more sustainable future. “As more Filipino shoppers are willing to shift to sustainable practices, this presents us an opportunity to invest in eco-friendly practices and take the lead in meeting consumer needs while reducing waste and increasing circularity,” stated Racoma.

To implement its collection for the recycling program, Mars Petcare is partnering with Pet Express and Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX). Through this partnership, pet parents can collect and surrender clean and empty packaging of any number of PEDIGREE, IAMS OR WHISKAS Dry food and any petfood flexible plastic packaging in any of the following sizes: 1kg, 3kg, and 8kg.

Recycling drop-off points are available in 15 of the participating Pet Express locations in International Toyworld Inc. stores in Metro Manila, such as Megamall, Mall of Asia, SM Fairview

Pet Express North Edsa, Bonifacio Global City, SM Masinag, SM Cubao, SM Makati, Festival Mall, Pet Express Dasmarinas, Pet Express Hyper Makati, Grand Central Caloocan, Pet Express Molino, Pet Express Madison Alabang, and Pet Express Estancia.

All collected materials will be handed to PCX, the recycling facilitator of the “Fur The Best” program. The materials will be recycled into useful products such as benches that will be donated to pet shelters in the Greater Manila area.

“PCX has always advocated the need for both upstream and downstream solutions to the plastic pollution crisis. Mars’ “Fur The Best” campaign is an important step to ensuring that brands are attempting specific recovery which builds a more circular economy “, said Nanette Medved-Po who founded PCX.

Participating pet parents should scan the QR code to register and answer the survey and will receive a Php 100 coupon per transaction, once daily, regardless of the quantity given. With the Php 100 coupon, pet parents can use it on the same day of swapping as a discount when the customers purchase ANY Mars Pet Nutrition Products for their fur babies. Customers can redeem the Php 100 discount until May 31, 2023.

“Our chances of achieving a sustainable future will be determined by how we protect our planet. As a result, sustainability activities will always be a component of our global efforts. We want to see significant development in the Philippines, where customers can join our ‘Fur The Best’ program,” Racoma added.

“Fur the love” of our dear pets and the environment, head to the nearest Pet Express in your area to SWAP empty packaging of pet foods and EARN P100 discount vouchers!
