Pacific Market International Survive FEED’s First Forest-Fitness Program in Sierra Madre

EARTH FIRST LOGO3 March 2018, Siniloan, Laguna – Sierra Madre Mountain Range.  49 adventurous Pacific Market International (PMI) staff participated in one of FEED’s most challenging treks to date, the first “Forest Fitness” designed trail designed for the boldest of tree-planters during the March 3rd Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Patron’s program, and their own PMI Gives and Earth First global
advocacy programs.

Pacific Market Intl Tree Planting18.jpgFollowing a near one hour trek through a forest trail full of rain, mud and inclines, through a creek, covering stones and steep inclines, some participants opted for the tractor to reach the planting site allocated to PMI,  where they eventually planted 245 indigenous Philippine tree species restored to the Sierra Madre mountains.

Pacific Market Intl Tree Planting1#greening4sierramadre is the campaign umbrella FEED advocates in support of its first and longest LIVING LEGACY partner, the Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) based in Siniloan, Laguna – a more than 9,000 hectares Philippine forest that needs rehabilitation, alternative and sustainable livelihood development for the community.

Thank you Pacific Market International Eco-Warriors!

For being so enthusiastic and for completing our first ever Forest Fitness course, May the Forest be With You Always!

The Cordillera Central, the central mountain chain of Luzon, running north to the Luzon Strait from the northern boundary of the central plain, is the most prominent range. It consists of two and in places three parallel ranges, each with an average elevation of about 5,900 feet (1,800 metres). The Sierra Madre, extending along the Pacific coast from northern to central Luzon, is the longest mountain range in the country. That range and the Cordillera Central merge in north-central Luzon to form the Caraballo Mountains. Source:

About Pacific Market International & Environmental Stewardship

PMI has always focused on sustainable business practices while bringing innovative product solutions to market. They make reusable products in facilities where workers are treated with dignity and respect, while also working to reduce their impact on the environment. In 2005, PMI sharpened their focus on environmental stewardship, defining new strategies and opportunities. Through the years, they have expanded on this effort and established meaningful ways to operate their business in a more sustainable manner.

Overcoming the current and future challenges associated with living in a resource-constrained world will require innovation and long-term planning. To fully realize the goal of sustainability, PMI will prepare for and adapt to changing environmental risks through evolving product lines, resource and emission mitigation practices, and supply chain efficiency. PMI recognizes the severity of the issues resulting from climate change, and believes it is their responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within PMI’s global operations.



FEED runs a number of Students and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE)Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – such as mangrove planting for coastal protection or ridge reforestation plantings; One Child, One Tree; Bio-Intensive Gardens (BIG) for nutrition in public elementary schools and other spaces; Climate Change Survival 101 and other LIVING LEGACY programs – customised environmental engagement activities for individuals and organisations interested in contributing to climate change adaptation efforts and greening critical areas such as watersheds, ridges, and reefs that all require rehabilitation.
