It’s been a pleasure working with Jonathan again, bringing together his unique vision with Uniqlo’s expertise in creating stylish and functional products. I hope everyone enjoys wearing these pieces, whether it’s on the tennis court, for other sports, or in casual settings.” Jonathan Anderson said, “I am honored to again collaborate with Roger Federer, whom I always admire.

Ever Bilena teams up with Miss Philippines Earth to champion sustainability

WITH a shared dedication to beauty and environmental responsibility, Ever Bilena is leveraging the pageant’s platform to promote its clean beauty advocacy and commitment to sustainability. This year’s focus tackles a critical environmental concern: the growing problem of post-consumer waste. The brand leverages the Miss Philippines Earth platform to raise awareness about upcycling and showcase their sustainability initiative with Ecoloop, Republic Cement’s resource recovery arm. Ecoloop utilizes co-processing technology, transforming plastic waste into alternative fuel for cement production. This reduces reliance on fossil fuels like coal, effectively diverting waste from landfills and waterways. The initiative tackles plastic pollution at its source by capturing both pre-consumer and post-consumer plastic waste. The collaboration extends beyond education. Miss Philippines Earth candidates recently posed with cement made from post-consumer plastic waste, including waste collected by Ever Bilena itself. According to Ever Bilena’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Denice Sy, “This powerful image unites beauty, environmental consciousness, and innovative solutions — a perfect representation of the Ever Bilena and Miss Philippines Earth partnership.”
