With an increasing awareness of climate change and our role as individuals in it, more and more have been looking for ways to embrace a green and sustainable lifestyle. In fact, a Nielsen survey in 2015 revealed the millennial generation, which comprises a huge chunk of the population, is willing to pay extra for sustainable products.
Here in the country, a company caters to the need for sustainable and environmentally responsible building products.
“The green movement is catching on among Filipinos, but their options to live sustainably is rather limited. Many green solutions available in developed nations are not available in the country, so we established Philippine Geogreen to help Filipinos embrace a green lifestyle,” said Liza Morales-Crespo, chief executive officer of Philippine Geogreen.
The company celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.
Morales-Crespo added, “We are happy that in just 10 years, we have helped thousands of Filipinos bring sustainable solutions to their homes and business, which is a key step in helping save the environment.”
Philippine Geogreen, Inc is the authorized Philippine distributor for some of the best energy saving fixtures in the US, as well as many industrial innovations that promote environmental sustainability.
Its innovative offerings represent four pillars—water, wind, fire, and earth—allowing people to be part of the green movement, while also bringing down their energy costs and reducing their carbon footprint.
Geogreen’s Atmospheric Water Generator extracts water from humid ambient air, literally allowing to create water out of thin air. Water vapor in the air is condensed by cooling the air below its dew point, extracting water in the process. This device is designed to render the water potable with multiple stages of filtration, making it useful for home, commercial, and industrial use.
Surviving the high humidity and heat levels can be done sustainably with Haiku fans, a product especially designed with energy efficiency and aesthetics in mind. A small ceiling fan made with an award-winning motor and controls that deliver a silent operation, it generates a cooling effect that is 80 percent more efficient than conventional ceiling fan motors. Its airfoils and central motor housing blend together into a single, seamless organic form, beautifully wrapped in a sleek, modern package. The result is a great cooling effect and huge savings. All Haiku fans exceed ENERGY STAR registered requirements for ceiling fans from 2012-2018, making it the most energy-efficient ceiling fan in the country.
For those who want to properly utilize the natural light in their homes, the Solatube Daylighting System is a brilliant solution. The system is especially engineered to capture the sun’s rays and bring these into one’s home, creating brighter and more expansive rooms. The Solatube can be installed in as little as two hours and requires no structural changes to the building, making it a quick solution to light up the home or office, while driving down power costs at the same time.
Other breakthrough solutions introduced by the company are LumActiv, a paint coating that has the capacity to clean the air once it gets activated by light—either sunlight or electric light. Its technology also keeps building surfaces break down city smog and it makes the exterior glass cleaner for a long period of time so it reduces the need for repainting and maintenance.
When it comes to land, Geogreen offers their ground-breaking product, Shorelock, a technology that protects and restores coastlines without dredging or purchasing new sand.
