We will now enjoy earning more points not only when we shop at our favorite Robinsons stores but also when we fuel up at Caltex. RRC members can now use their points to redeem P1 discount for every one liter fuel purchase at participating Caltex stations nationwide. Every five liter gas up earns a point which means that the more customers fuel up at Caltex and shop at Robinsons, the more points for fuel and shopping savings.


Last Thursday, Robinsons and Caltex launched their partnership at Makati Shang-ri La. Robinsons Rewards Card ambassador Jessy Mendiola also graced the event.


 Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of Caltex fuels and lubricants, teamed up with Robinsons Retail Holdings, Inc. (RRHI), the second largest multi-format retailer in the Philippines, to create a unique offer that allows customers to quickly and continually add value to their purchases by getting a variety of fuel and shopping rewards through their RRC.



Because of this loyalty program partnership, motorists now have more reasons to choose Caltex. Customers can save more on fuel costs when they purchase Caltex with Techron plus the five benefits of maximized power, improved fuel economy, lower emission, smoother drive and reliable performance.

CPI values the patronage of its customers by giving them access to top loyalty programs in the market.  Last year, CPI partnered with Jollibee Food Corporation’s Happyplus program which continues to grow in memberships. Happyplus will run alongside the Robinsons Rewards Card loyalty program and customers can choose which of the rewards program they want to use.
Caltex has been in the Philippines for over 75 years. Throughout this time, the Caltex brand has remained relevant to Filipino motorists because we are able to support their changing lifestyles and needs.

Multiple Intelligence International School hosted run-by-any-means fun run for the environment

As a mom, we always want our kids to participate in every school activity that also has something to do our mother nature. It’s very important for them to be part and see the real benefits of loving our mother nature.


Recently, Multiple Intelligence International School hosted a run-by-any-means fun run at the University of the Philippines Diliman Academic Oval. This school is known for their advocate for sustainable schools and the multiple intelligence framework implemented in the United States and other countries.


Part of the “Green MOVEment #4GreenPH” campaign, the run-by-any-means activity attracted whole families with grandparents, environment advocates, and running enthusiasts. All for fun and the environment, the participants ran, walked, and some were pushed thru strollers or wheelchairs towards the finished line.


“We wanted to encourage everyone to make a stand to ensure a green future for today's kids. The activity also serves as an awareness campaign on the environment’s vulnerability for which we should be responsible,” says Joy Abaquin, founding directress at MIIS.


During the MIIS Green Movement, they also awarded the 6th Multiple Intelligence 2015.


Multiple Intelligence International School has been at the forefront of advocating environmental sustainability and protection, teaching their students to have a heart for the environment while training them to be global leaders.

Supportive daddy Julius and his daughter Anya.

For instance, the student curriculum includes subjects about environment preservation and conservation, combining theory with practice. Stepping up its game, the school is set to build the first LEED-certified campus along Katipunan Road in Quezon City. The 3,000-sqm establishment highlights innovative wastewater technology and water management facility to reduce water consumption and waste, noise and air pollution barriers for better indoor atmosphere, the use of low emitting furnishing and furniture materials, composite wood, and agrifibers; and thermal comfort lighting systems and technologies to improve indoor environment quality.

The structure’s most significant feature is that it has been over designed to withstand a magnitude 8 earthquake.  More important, the classrooms, basketball court, and football field are designed to be safe and large enough to accommodate people from surrounding areas should disaster strike.

“The school will serve as a laboratory for environmental technology and innovations that can positively impact and serve as a model for other schools and buildings in the country,” Abaquin says.

She adds, “The safety and protection of our children, the concern for their future, and thus the environment, should be everyone’s responsibility.”

Abaquin says the run-by-any-means activity is just one of their tiny steps to achieving their goal of a sustainable environment.

The fun run or fun walk gave certificates, cash prizes and medals to kids with the best “green” costume as well as the fastest, youngest, oldest runners and the family with the most number of participants.

Other activities included a performance by MIIS students using indigenous instruments. In cooperation with Smart Communications, the school recognized the 2015 Multiple Intelligence awardees. These are personalities who have changed the lives of Filipinos through their particular intelligence in the area of sustainable development.

The Green MOVEment benefits the Cambantoc Reforestation Project, a six-year-old MIIS endeavor that helps in the replanting and maintenance of trees in the Laguna watershed, promote environmental literacy in public schools, and fund the school community’s Green School Movement projects.
