Why clean indoor air matters as kids return to face-to-face classes

Manila, Philippines – Face-to-face classes have finally resumed. As children begin to spend more time in school, more than ever, schools must be safe spaces where children can learn and play with friends.

Aside from requiring face masks and physical distancing, what can schools do to minimize the risk of students and staff getting sick? One answer is to ensure clean indoor air.

Why classrooms need clean air

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor air quality[1]. A global study by UNICEF estimates over 600,000 children under five years old passed away because of diseases linked to polluted air[2].

Due to the fact that people spend up to 90% of their time indoors[3], exposure to polluted air is still more likely to happen in indoor environments[4]. Viruses like the flu and COVID-19 can also spread through the air in crowded and poorly ventilated indoor spaces[5].

Strategies to improve indoor air quality

In April 2022, The Department of Education (DepEd) released revised operational guidelines for face-to-face classes. Among the provisions for classroom layout and structure were measures highlighting the importance of both clean air and proper ventilation.

For non-airconditioned spaces, windows and doors must be kept open to maximize airflow[6]. However, in air-conditioned rooms or in spaces where access to outside air isn’t feasible, air purifiers with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration systems must be used[7].  

HEPA filters work by forcing air through a fine mesh that traps pollutants such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and tobacco smoke[8]. Portable air purifiers that use HEPA filters as the primary mechanism of air cleaning are both easy to install and can be placed in different areas of a classroom and other indoor spaces.

Recent studies have shown that portable air purifiers may help to reduce exposure to respiratory viruses, including COVID-19 in poorly ventilated indoor environments[9]. As such, the use of portable air purifiers is recognized by several scientific societies and organizations as a protective measure in a multi-layered approach to help minimize the transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections[10].

Clean air at the push of a button

In Makati City, classes opened at 100% on-site capacity ahead of the DepEd mandate to fully implement face-to-face classes by November[11]. In preparation, the Makati City government equipped its public schools with measures in compliance with COVID-19 protocols set by the Department of Health.

These measures include thermal scanners at entry points, UV light filters, and air purifiers in every classroom – something the local government tested as early as the limited in-person class pilot runs held last year[12].

With the full implementation of face-to-face classes on the horizon, accessible and reliable filtration technology is a must to ensure children stay healthy as they continue to return to school and interact with the world once again.

To help keep indoor spaces such as classrooms and homes clean and protected at the push of a button, the Philips 800 Series Air Purifier quickly and effectively filters viruses, allergens, or pollutants in spaces up to 48 m². It uses multi-layer filtration technology present in all Philips Air Purification Solutions. The pre-filter catches dust and air, while the NanoProtect HEPA filter is designed to capture over 99% of particles as small as 0.003 microns, smaller than smallest known virus[13].

MILO® Philippines partners with moms in energizing kids back to school

MANILA, Philippines, 10 October 2022 – As the new school year begins and millions of kids are now eagerly getting ready to go back, excited to see their classmates and teachers again, breakfast champion MILO® Philippines is on a nationwide tour to remind moms and kids about the importance of needing nutritious, energetic start every day. This has been especially challenging for students have been forced to adapt to online learning just a couple of years ago.

As families start adjusting again for face-to-face classes this year, MILO® Champions are going across the country through the “Back to School, Back to Sports” program, visiting different barangays to help jumpstart their mornings with nutritious energy. In partnership with the LGUs, with the support of sports offices, volunteers from CSOs, and DepEd, each trip is designed for kids to learn more about different sports and teach them how to have an active lifestyle after being mostly at home for the past two years.

Trusted health experts have also tagged along to give moms free nutrition training and teach them how to prepare a nutritous breakfast for their kids so that they can stay energized when they go to school and when come back home.

”It is crucial that parents continue to make sure their children consume a balanced diet. A healthy breakfast gives kids the energy they need to fuel their daily activities and start the day off right. According to research, it can boost children’s cognitive abilities, such as their memory, alertness, focus, and problem-solving skills, and help them perform better in reading, math, and science tests,” said Ann Cayetano, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

Most recently, karateka and SEA Games gold medalist Jamie Lim guested in the South Luzon leg where she introduced basic karate movements to over a hundred kids. “Being active in sports at a young age taught me many life lessons that helped me excel in and outside the classroom like the value of girt or pagpupursige. It’s been such an amazing experience to be here with our next generation of Champions, helping kickstart their school year on an energetic note and showing the possibilities that sports can offer them as they go back to face-to-face classes,” said Lim.

Marathon runner Rio de la Cruz also joined to teach them the importance of doing regular physical activities. He also explained how staying energized and daily exercise can help them do better in school.

“The physical benefits of being active and the valuable lessons it teaches goes a long way in helping our kids show grit, or to be pagpupursige. As a young student athlete, drinking MILO after my early morning training sessions helped give me the nutritious energy I needed to fulfill my academic and athletic responsbilities. Now, as a parent, I’m proud to work again with MILO® in giving my fellow moms and dads the tools they need to continue their kid’s Champion journey during the new school year,” said Coach Rio.

Committed to guiding kids on their Champion journey, MILO® Philippines also continues to recognize the important role that both moms and dads will forever play in ensuring kids success in and beyond the classroom. Integral in that effort are partnerships with experts in nutrition who can equip parents with the tools and information they need to continue keeping their kids energized at school and when they go back home.

“Together with our partners, we are excited to welcome kids back to school and re-introduce them to sports. For some, it’s been years since they’ve had a chance to go outside and engage in physical activites. Through this program, we hope to help kids start living an active lifestyle because, when paired with the nutritious energy of MILO, it adds to their holistic development,” said Sam Ching, Assistant Brand Manager, MILO® Philippines.

Be on the look out as your barangay could be the next stop in the MILO® Philippines “Back To School, Back To Sports” takover. Visit the official MILO® Philippines website to know more about MILO® sports programs and stay updated with all the latest news and announcements.

Manila, Philippines (February 2022) — Francis Libiran has released a new perfume line designed with esteemed perfume creator, Oscar Mejia III. Dusk and Dawn, the two variants in the Francis Libiran perfume collection will be available in limited stocks starting this February. 

Libiran said that he has always been interested in extending his expertise in the lifestyle area. He had been researching on the country’s best perfume connoisseurs and creators and it just so happened that he met Oscar Mejia III in an artisan trade fair and reached out to him for a collaborative project! Mejia agreed, and the rest is history. 

Libiran and Mejia came up with the Dusk and Dawn collection, which is composed of aromatic products to set the tone of our home ambiance, as well as a perfume line! 

Dusk is an ode to grace and romance through refreshing notes of bamboo and white tea and velvety hints of chamomile and rose that’s wrapped in musk and amber. 

Dawn celebrates hope through the radiant notes of pomelo and olive with a lingering hint of sampaguita and patchouli. 

Libiran and Mejia expanded these two invigorating scents into four products: perfume candles, reed diffusers, and antibacterial room and linen sprays. All scented products are packaged with care instructions for optimal results. 

Libiran said that these products play a part in one’s well-being and improve focus and overall mood. 

The Dusk and Dawn collection will be made exclusively available online via their website and in all Francis Libiran stores and ateliers.

HEPA Filtration System against viruses in place at The Manila Hotel

As The Manila Hotel’s famed Café Ilang-Ilang and the romantic Champagne Room reopened on January 28 and February 2, 2022, respectively. The hotel chose to suspend dining operations and do general maintenance when the holiday festivities died down to ensure food quality and guest safety, as well as do spot-checks on its facilities.

The Manila Hotel’s Grand Lobby, one of the biggest areas where guests gather, is the intended location of one of the biggest units of the air purifying filtration system to ensure guest and staff safety.

Café Ilang-Ilang is still one of the best eat-all-you can restaurants in the country where diners can indulge in a wide range of food selections for lunch and dinner daily. This brings together Italian, Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and even certified Halal dishes under one roof for an indulgent eat-all-you-can feast featuring crowd favorites like the US Beef Rib Roast; items from the Churrasco station; seafood like prawns and crabs; a glorious spread of different sushi and sashimi; Filipino favorites like Lechon with truffle rice; an array of desserts including bibingka, puto bumbong, and halo-halo; and many more.

Meanwhile, Manila’s premier destination for exquisite fine dining serves up lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Saturday, with choices from la carte items and special multi-course degustation menus—conceived by the hotel’s Executive Chef to showcase what this dining outlet is all about. Think generous servings of Black Angus TenderloinUS Prime Beef Rib, the Chilean Sea Bass, or the satisfying Seafood Medley; there are also choices of starters; and for dessert, don’t miss out on the indulgent sweet delight—its signature Baked Alaska. The most romantic room in the country marks the return of its fine dining just in time for Valentine month.

#YouAreSafeHere will always be a commitment

As the hotel continues to accept staycation guests, social events in various function rooms, and with dining outlets reopening, it will be much safer for guests to visit and dine in the outlets as the historic hotel takes a technology-driven solution to create a safer environment for guests by installing several innovative High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) UV-Care Clean air purifying filtration system units in different high-traffic areas.

The HEPA filtration system units are installed in various parts of the hotel to ensure guest and staff safety.

The UV Care Air Purifier with Humidifier with 8-Stage Filtration System is proven to kill 99.97% SARS-CoV2* and is a timely response to the surge of the COVID-19 Delta and Omicron variants in the country (*tested by MRI Global USA, according to UV-Care website). According to its manufacturers, the more advanced, medical-grade H14 HEPA filter has VIRUX® patented technology with a built-in activated carbon and photocatalyst filters that, along with UV LED lamp, is proven to effectively eliminate bacteria, germs, viruses, and pathogens. Their product information also states that these air filtration units are efficient in capturing and removing airborne particulates such as PM 2.5 and other allergens, dust, mold, and pollution from the air, and provides Ultraviolet-C sanitization to disinfect the air and kill germs. When used along with the best practices recommended by the IATF, DOH and DOT, it could be an effective indoor protection for both guests and staff.

The Manila Hotel welcomes dining and staycation guests with further assurance that “YOU ARE SAFE HERE”—because it isn’t just a tagline for us, but a commitment we uphold. For air quality, the hotel also installed heavy-duty York Solution Mobile HEPA Air-Handling Units in wider areas like the Grand Lobby. Aside from dining options, staycation and leisure stays are now at guest-friendly rates from only P6,000 nett. For more information on room and restaurant rates and reservations, guests may call the trunkline 85270011 or 09989501912. They can also book rooms by emailing resvn@themanilahotel.com, and make dining reservations via restaurantrsvn@themanilahotel.com

Live Safe with Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol

I am truly hopeful that we can all get back to our pre-pandemic lifestyles sooner! But then, the selfish act of “Poblacion Girl” hits us reaaally hard.

The slowly re-opening of establishments and allowing kids to go out was put into hold as Metro Manila was raised to Alert Level 3. As we respond to Omicron Threat, health experts continue to remind everyone to not let their guards down.

With this new COVID variant, everyone must continue to be vigilant through following established health protocols and getting vaccinated so we can all continue to live safe and stop the surge.

That’s why when we do essential errands such as buying groceries, exercising outdoors, or simply going outside, disinfecting your hands and any surface you interact with goes a long way to ensure living safely for you and your family.

One way to prevent the spread of the virus is by always carrying a trusted rubbing alcohol brand that contains at least 70% alcohol solution whenever you go outdoors.

As I tried out Defensil Alcohol, it becomes my trusted brand as I can clearly tell that it is of high quality and more effective.

Defensil 70% Solution Isopropyl Alcohol, the alcohol recommended by the Philippine Society for Microbiology (PSM), can kill 99.9% of common germs and bacteria starts to kill them on contact so that you can safely do the activities you love wherever you are. Defensil also provides up to 12 hours of protection upon constant use so that you are protected and do activities with ease.

Skin dryness from too frequent sanitizing will also not be a worry as Defensil has moisturizing properties and is hypoallergenic, giving you one less thing to worry about when going indoors.

“We are 100% behind the government in their efforts to prevent further spread of the virus. Defensil encourages everyone to remain vigilant now more than ever and do our part in this fight towards eventually resuming our normal way of life by adhering to social Distancing and sanitation protocols, especially when doing essential errands outdoors,” shared Nikko Cruz, Brand Manager of Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol.

For more information on how to stay protected, you may visit the Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol’s Facebook page at facebook.com/defensil.philippines.

Let’s All Stay Protected!

5 Things Anne Does At Home (That You Can Do, Too!)

If you’re from the Philippines and watch TV or use the internet, then you’ll most likely know who Anne Curtis is. She’s one of the country’s biggest stars and has maintained a successful career from her teens to adulthood. Yes, she’s beautiful, but she’s also funny, kind, and talented. It’s no wonder people can’t get enough of her even after more than a decade in the spotlight!

However, just like everyone else who had to adjust to working from home, a big celebrity like Anne Curtis also experienced being confined to the four corners of her house (whether in the Philippines or in the land down under). Check out 6 activities that fill her day that you can try, too.

Pet love

Anyone who has a pet knows that hours can go by just by watching your little furry friends run around the house. With her adorable cat, Pixie, who Anne playfully refers to as the female version of Garfield, we can only imagine the hours that pass when they have their play time. You too can take a breather from work by hanging out with your own lovely pet.

Exercise never stops

Anne is known to be a fitness enthusiast. Even before the lockdown, she would join marathons here and abroad. Being at home hasn’t stopped her from filling her days with fitness activities. She even took it a step further and launched her own line of active wear! This is your sign to pick up those dumbbells, jump rope, or yoga mat, and kickstart (or restart) your fitness journey today.

Mommy-baby time

Anne is such a proud mama when it comes to her cute daughter, Dahlia. Who can blame her? Anne shares how she bonds with her little one at home to the delight of Dahlia’s growing number of adoring fans. If you are a new mom, too, or if you have young nephews and nieces, savor their early years and spend time watching them learn about the world around them.

Time to be the boss

Did we mention how talented Anne is? She and her sister-in-law, Solenn, just launched their own clothing line for kids while at home. From the conceptualization to their photoshoot, Anne managed to make it all happen without having to leave her house. If you feel your calling is to be the CEO of your own business, then all your extra time at home might be the thing you need to make that dream happen!

Salontastic at home

Anne is used to having a glam team around her or having a professional salon just one appointment away, but due to safety restrictions, that isn’t always the case today. But for Anne, being away from a physical salon doesn’t mean staying away from salon-level hair treatments, too. That’s because she has her go-to hair secret that gives her salon-level smooth and healthy hair right at home – Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner!

The best part is that you too can experience the same Salontastic benefits that come with every bottle of Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner for only ₱6! Take your pick from the three variants to best suit your hair needs. If you want to fight hair fall, it’s time strengthen hair from breakage* with Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Biotin Strength Conditioner. If you want smoother, more manageable hair* for less hassle with your locks at home, then pick Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Keratin Smooth Conditioner. Or if like Anne, you want to repair your hair from the inside-out, then Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Collagen Repair Conditioner is the one for you.

*with system use versus non-conditioning shampoo

Check out Anne’s newest Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner video on YouTube to see how easy (and affordable!) it is to achieve Salontastic hair right at home! All variants of Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner are available at the P&G official stores on Lazada and Shopee.

Manila, Philippines – This rainy season, our skin is extra vulnerable to triggers and irritations. Even babies are no exception to different skin conditions like Eczema.

Choose better and eat better with COOP Fresh’s all-natural and organic selection

(MANILA, Philippines) – Over the past year, there has been a stronger preference for everything healthy and, naturally, it has led us to rethink our standards of what is good for us. Health is wealth and it can be achieved in even the smallest ways, like the food we eat. Recognizing this uptrend for healthier and cleaner options, online specialty grocer COOP Grocer has introduced its own line of all-natural and organic products: ranging from meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and ready-made food. Aptly called COOP Fresh, each item guarantees your food is non-GMO certified and was made with no growth hormones, preservatives, antibiotics, or pesticides. Additionally, all products are locally farmed from prime agricultural sites in Cavite, Laguna, Ilocos Norte, and Palawan—and its produce is freshly harvested every week using only natural fertilizers.

By working directly with local farmers, COOP Grocer effectively eliminates the middleman. This allows the company to offer competitive pricing for its customers and easier access to all-natural and organic items. When you shop the COOP Fresh catalogue, customers are assured of nothing but pure healthy goodness.

“We promote the use of affordable fresh produce for your everyday meals instead of going for highly processed or instant food. We have local produce at really affordable prices as we go straight to the source, but we also offer all-natural options if you’re more conscious of what you eat,” said Meileen Chang, COOP Grocer’s Brand Manager.

Offering 100% organic or 100% all-natural selections, COOP Fresh sets a premium standard for all health-conscious shoppers who can now save time from scrutinizing the ingredients lists and nutrition charts. Certified organic products guarantee that the animals used were only given hormone- and GMO-free feed and raised in an open range, sustainable environment. Natural, on the other hand, means that products were made with only all-natural ingredients and contain no preservatives, artificial colors, and flavors. Specific to its meat and seafood, all-natural assures that no MSG, additives, chemicals, or extenders of any kind were added in the preparation process.

“Organic and natural products are used by farmers who practice good agricultural standards. When we eat meat filled with hormones or vegetables sprayed with pesticides, it eventually takes a toll on our bodies, leaving us more prone to sickness and diseases. That is why COOP Fresh is a welcome change for customers of COOP Grocer who have started to embrace a healthier way of eating,” added Chang.

Moreover, through the COOP Grocer website and app, the company eliminates the common obstacles of convenience and accessibility that health-conscious individuals face. Simply browse its wide selection of products, choose what you want, and click the checkout button at the end in one fluid and harmonious step – all from the palm of your hand.

With just a few swipes and clicks: you can enjoy a twist to your breakfast with all-natural cheese hotdogs, add some zest to your pork and chicken with organic pineapple slices, healthfully snack on hamburgers made with organic ground beef served with side of an all-natural cherry tomato salad, and top off every meal with a refreshing fruit smoothie made with natural cold-pressed frozen coconut milk.
