Shakey’s Saves the Planet One Step at a Time


Shakey’s Saves the Planet One Step at a Time

In its mission to provide a positive impact to the community, Shakey’s has partnered with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to promote the #AyokoNgPlastik Movement.

Very recently, a total of 131 volunteers from Shakey’s and WWF headed over to Las Pinas-Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA) for a Coastal Clean-up.

LPPCHEA is a nature reserve of mangroves, ponds, lagoons and a mixed beach forest, and it homes 41 migratory bird species from China, Japan and Siberia. But because it is beside Manila Bay, the islands in LPPCHEA have been a catch basin for trash from the surrounding bodies of water especially during the rainy season.

Taking part in the activity was Shakey’s President and CEO, Vicente L. Gregorio, who reminded everyone that “you have a mission to the community and you are always empowered to help clean and conserve the environment.” The team was able to collect 214 sacks or 1,515 kilos of waste items from the shores of Freedom Island, with plastics on top of the list.

More than just a casual dining restaurant, Shakey’s is committed to engaging in environmental causes that will help improve quality of life. In line with its “Love The Planet Like You Love Our Pizza” campaign, the organization’s goal is to be plastic neutral by 2020.

Shakey’s is taking big steps in raising awareness on the effects of plastic pollution, especially in the oceans. Reducing the consumption of single-use plastics is one of the initiatives that the organization is working on as it encourages everyone to “quit the sip.” Kicking the habit of using straws not only saves life in the oceans, because the reduced waste also benefits lives on land.

With eyes to the future, Shakey’s hopes that it will be more than just a store that provides great times and great memories. With its steps in helping the environment, Shakey’s also looks at sharing with the community a great planet.
