Flip-flops brand Banana Peel raises awareness to save Earth

The recent visit of Nobel Peace Prize winner and former US vice president Al Gore has raised awareness once again about the need to protect the environment and the costly consequences of climate change. Fortunately, many companies are going green and adapting best practices, among them flip-flops brand Banana Peel that strongly supports causes that revolve around the protection of planet Earth.  The Philippines’ first flip-flops concept store likewise believes in connecting deeply with its consumers, and these twin commitments have inspired the brand to create products made from environment friendly and safe materials. As every Banana Peel believer knows, each and every pair is made with non-toxic paint and non-hazardous compounds.

To demonstrate its advocacy of raising awareness about the need to save the planet, Banana Peel is launching its Earth Hour Collection of flip-flops that glow in the dark to encourage people to switch off and be mindful of the fight to save planet earth not only during Earth Hour 2016 but even beyond.  

Banana Peel's Earth Hour Collection features eco-friendly designs 
Banana Peel knows the value of educating shoppers about climate change, and this advocacy drives the brand’s commitment to develop well-thought out designs for its eco-friendly sandals and flip-flops. After all, sustainable development is a core value of the company, and the brand perseveres in its efforts to protect Earth through several joint venture projects with leading conservation group World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Philippines). 

To further communicate the Earth Hour movement, it has put up a billboard along Guadalupe, while major stores also feature a unique window display that encompasses the Switch Off, Choose Earth campaign.

Every pair purchased from Banana Peel’s World Wide Fund for Nature collections also help the company and WWF-Philippines to deploy solar lamps to light up the sitios of Monreal in Masbate. The main goal is to help provide the community with clean, sustainable sources of electricity replacing the costly and hazardous use of kerosene.

In 2014 and 2015, the brand released collections that focused on marine life preservation and forest and wildlife conservation. For sure, Banana Peel will be unflagging in its commitment to bolster and inspire more generations to become responsible stewards of our home that we know as planet Earth.
