Herbalife Nutrition and National Parks Development Committee Plant “Seedling” Bike Racks in Luneta Park

Herbalife Nutrition and National Parks Development Committee Plant “Seedling” Bike Racks in Luneta Park

Herbalife Nutrition, in collaboration  with the National Parks Development Committee (NPDC), unveiled on April 2, 2022 bike racks in Luneta Park. The installation of Herbalife Nutrition-branded bike racks in various locations around the park represents a further step taken by the Company to encourage sustainable mobility and a healthy active lifestyle among Filipinos. 

“We have noticed that the Philippines is starting to develop a cycling culture as a result of the challenges in mobility caused by the pandemic. More Filipinos have started cycling not just for recreation, but for traveling to work, the grocery and other destinations. As a global nutrition company that advocates a healthy active lifestyle supported by good nutrition, we are glad to see our fellow Filipinos becoming more physically active. Environmental sustainability is part of Herbalife Nutrition’s commitment to supporting a better, healthier World, and is embedded in both our day-to-day activities and our long-term business strategy.~Allan Domingo, General Manager of Herbalife Nutrition Philippines

Domingo noted that not only would cycling bring health benefits to people, but also contribute to  a healthier environment.

Luneta Park, also known as Rizal Park, is one of the largest urban parks in Asia, covering 58 hectares. Located in the capital city of Manila, it is one of the country’s major tourist attractions, visited by local and foreign tourists alike.

The bike racks in Rizal Park were constructed based on a design by Eggshell Worldwide Communications, Inc., the creative agency behind the bike rack art installations that were also launched in Manila last year.

Called “Seedlings”, the bike racks serve as a reminder that nature also needs time and care to reach their optimal state.

The Philippines is one of the countries in  Asia Pacific with strong private sector participation in driving sustainability programs. Herbalife Nutrition seeks to partner with more private companies and local government units to establish more cycling  infrastructure in key cities across the country.

DepEd, DOH, and USAID kicked off the BIDA Kid National Campaign

As a mother of 2 kids whose into online class since the pandemic started more than 2 years ago, I am one of those parents who are excited for the students to get back in school and have their face to face studies. The fear of the virus is still there but proper education and social relationship of my kids had suffered since then. DepEd, DOH, and USAID kicked off the BIDA Kid national campaign at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall to encourage learners, teachers, and education stakeholders to keep practicing COVID-19 health and safety guidelines in schools and public spaces. 

“One of our utmost priorities is the safety of our learners amid the risk of COVID-19.  The BIDA Kid campaign is another whole-of-government initiative to encourage everyone to keep our children protected while we progressively reintroduce classroom-based learning.” ~Leonor Magtolis Briones, Education Secretary

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III and USAID Philippines Mission Director Ryan Washburn joined Secretary Briones to unveil the official music video and key visual of the campaign, which highlights the 3Bs: Bakuna (Vaccination), Bayanihan (Solidarity), and BIDA behaviors—Best friend natin ang masks, Ingatan at hugasan ang kamay, Dumistansya upang makaiwas sa sakit, Airflow ay panatilihin (Wear masks, observe handwashing and social distancing to avoid getting sick, and maintain room airflow). 

Secretary Duque  highlighted to the education stakeholders to continue observing safety measures such as the importance of 3Bs in schools and at home despite the improving COVID-19 situation in the country.

“A safe school environment is crucial for our children’s development both academically and emotionally.  This is only possible if we continue to champion COVID-19 vaccination in our communities and commit to practicing the minimum public health standards everywhere and at all times.” ~Francisco Duque III, Health Secretary

Mission Director Washburn said he was grateful for the strong partnership between USAID and the national government as a whole-of-society approach ensures that physical classes can be conducted safely. 

“Face-to-face classes give students better motivation to study, having the opportunity to interact directly with their teachers and classmates.  Classrooms offer a supportive environment for learning as well as social and emotional well-being,” said Mission Director Washburn.  “As your friend, partner, and ally, the U.S. government, through USAID, will continue to collaborate with our Philippine government counterparts so Filipinos are better able to manage the impacts and bounce back quickly from the COVID-19 pandemic.” ~Ryan Washburn, USAID Philippines Mission Director

As of March 28, around 13,692 public and private schools are conducting in-person classes, according to the latest DepEd field report.  Thanks to the country’s Resbakuna Kids campaign, about 10 million children have been vaccinated against COVID-19, and the DOH continues to secure additional vaccine doses for them. 

The BIDA Kid campaign, including BIDA kits, the music video, jingle, and key visual, will be rolled out to all schools and DepEd offices.  Field offices are encouraged to display and develop localized materials to further amplify the campaign’s messages.
