Here is our small effort for the environemt's welfare:

During the HRMD staff meeting last September 29, my officemate, Ms. Lyn, suggested we organize an environment-friendly Christmas season activity: a Parol making contest.Parol is a star-shape lantern widely used as decor during the yuletide season here in the Philippines.

Parol making contest is a common gimmick, but Ms. Lyn suggested a twist--- to use our respective department's recyclable/reusable materials in our parols. In this way we will be able to make the same old thing brand new (which is certified environment friendly), make a decor for the season and foster camaraderie among officemates.

This project will commence mid-November, but early as the past two weeks we are already collating possible decor materials.

The winning parol /department will be announced during the Christmas tree lighting on December 8. I'll then post updates.

This project is not a big leap for a cleaner environment, but we know that this small step is a constituent of a good cause.
