We want to make air travel easy, affordable and accessible for everyJuan,” said Charo Logarta-Lagamon, Cebu Pacific Air corporate communications director, as she congratulated the finalists at the Juan For Fun (JFF) Awarding event on July 24, 2017 held at the Mallorca Sunken Outdoor Club, Ibiza, BGC.

Beko PH urges Filipinos to go green when doing their laundry

The call to conserve water and energy has never been more imperative than today. With the effects of global warming and climate change now more pronounced than ever before, there is a need to be mindful of the way we spend our resources. This not only extends to the way we use our water resources but also the way we consume electricity.

Be wise energy users.

As part of Beko’s green initiatives, Beko Philippines encourages Filipinos to become wise energy users by contemplating on their laundry routine. Beko understands that doing the laundry also requires a significant amount of electricity.

According to the Department of Energy (DOE), the household sector is the second major user of electricity. In fact, laundry accounts 29 percent of other household electricity usage based on the latest available Household Energy Consumption Survey (HECS) by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

“Beko believes that we must take into account how much energy is consumed even on our laundry. As we envision a greener laundry routine, the company has been initiating outstanding contributions toward the protection of the environment through energy efficiency and innovating eco-friendly washing machines,” said Dyeun Zapanta, Beko Philippines Sales and Marketing Head.

Beko suggests that households follow regular laundry days and avoid running the washing machine for only a few pieces of items.

Invest on energy-efficient washing machines.

Beko Philippines underlines that by taking steps to reduce energy consumption, one could contribute to a cleaner and greener world. For instance, investing on energy-efficient washers and dryers significantly cuts your electric bills.

Recently, the Manila Electric Company (Meralco) tested the energy efficiency of certain Beko washing machines in line with its Orange Tags campaign. The Meralco Orange Tags are easy-to-understand labels that indicate estimated energy consumption in kilowatt-hours (kWh) and estimated cost per hour to inform consumers on how much electricity a household product consumes.

Meralco tested some Beko’s washing machines in three trials. Items tested ranged from front loaders, top loaders and dryers in different sizes and capacities. The said survey revealed that the washing machines are all energy efficient. The results of the test are as follows:

Beko Top Load Fully Automatic Washing Machine

Meralco estimated that the average cost per wash of Beko’s three top-loads amounts to only a peso per hour of washing cycle.

Specifically, for a 7-kg capacity washing machine, every wash amounts to only PhP0.96 per hour of washing with 0.09 energy consumption and 94 watts for power usage.

Meanwhile, for 9-kg capacity top load, Meralco calculated that the cost per wash cycle amounts to PhP1.14 for almost an hour of washing with 0.11 energy consumption and 97 watts. On the other hand, for 12kg top load, they assessed that the cost per wash amounts to PhP1.37 again for almost an hour with 0.13 energy consumption and 109 watts.

Beko Frontload Fully Automatic Washing Machine

For a 7-kg and 9-kg capacity, the estimated cost per wash both costs 9 pesos per almost four hours of washing with 0.88 and 0.84 energy consumption, respectively.

On the other hand, for 10.5-kg frontload, they measured that every wash costs 15 pesos for a full load, full cycle with duration of nearly four hours with 1.47 energy consumption and 380 watts for power usage.

Beko Dryers 

For Beko’s 7-kg dryer, the estimated cost per drying cycle amounts to six pesos per half an hour with 0.63 energy consumption and 1,217 watts.

“Our products are meant to not only improve how people live but also improve how we impact our environment. “Choosing an energy efficient washing machine can do more for the environment and at the same time, reduce the cost of their water and electricity bills. That is why we are bringing the efficiency of our washing machines as the Official Partner of the Everyday to help Filipino consumer save energy,” added Zapanta.

Beko Ph on its second year

Beko Philippines continues to innovate products that can make a difference in the lives of Filipinos. With their strong emphasis and commitment toward raising awareness on energy consumption and innovating energy-efficient washing machines, they encourage Filipinos to take part towards preserving their environment by taking into consideration their energy consumption.

Strengthening its local presence as it approaches its third year in the Philippines, leading European home appliance brand Beko further penetrates the Filipino market. Since 2015, Beko Philippines already doubled its distribution in the country. The company has also tripled its sales through its enhanced and domineering product line that continuously meets the need of the Filipino market.

The deadline for submission of nomination forms is on August 15, 2017.

Exemplary Filipino families may be nominated based on: relevance and impact of their advocacy in addressing the community’s pressing needs, long-term sustainability, magnitude of the advocacy’s contribution to the community, family members’ degree of involvement and participation, and ability to surpass challenges and special circumstances.

Five outstanding Filipino families will be recognized as grand winners of the Jollibee Family Values Award. Each family will receive a P300,000 cash prize, a trophy designed by renowned sculptor Michael Cacnio, and P10,000 worth of Jollibee gift certificates.

WATTPAD Season Ender Presents: Just the Strings

After a brief hiatus, former PBB sweethearts Cora Waddell and Luis Hontiveros will team up, once again, for the season ender of WATTPAD PRESENTS entitled, Just The Strings.

Based on the Wattpad novel by Beeyoch, this is the second book of the author’s “Just” series that has captured millions of Wattpad readers and is, in fact, the most-awaited TV adaptation this year. 

Just The Strings is the story of Imo (Cora Wadell), a quintessential “emo” girl whose life evolves around books and underground music. 

Her so-called miniscule world becomes large in all proportions when she accidentally rode on the wrong car, thinking it was her UBER ride, which is being driven by the school heartthrob and basketball star, Saint (Luis Hontiveros). This chance meet-up leads to a blossoming romance despite Imo’s eternal infatuation with her childhood best friend Parker, who is played by Starstruck finalist, James Teng. Imo is also ruptured by the fact that both Saint and Parker are linked with other girls but in some such way, also baited by Imo’s kindness and whimsical character. 


Whose string will Imo be attached with? Who is “the one”? Her long-time best friend Parker or Saint, who gave her worth and romance? Or will there be . . . just the strings? This episode will surely bring a lot of kilig for everyone, both young and old.

Also starring Chris Leonardo, Jefferlyn Serrano, Ruth Lopez-Dee and Sophia Reyes. Written by Mark Ghosn and Fyodor Macanda, under Firestarters Productions, INC. and directed by award-winning director Isabel Quesada. Catch WATTPAD Presents Just The Strings #JTSonTV5 on Saturday, 9PM on TV5.
