HOMEGROWN RETAILER and shopping mall operator New City Commercial Center (NCCC) is now selling vegetables and fruits that are wrapped in banana leaves instead of plastic. The produce are from NCCC’s unit, Helen’s Farm Inc. (HFI), which practices organic farming. HFI Manager Joeirene M. Campomanes said the shift is part of NCCC’s Go Green campaign alongside the growing consciousness among consumers for a more environment-friendly lifestyle. NCCCC supermarkets have also started using eco-friendly egg trays. Ms. Campomanes said the supermarket is also advocating other “environment-friendly products.” HFI, with farms located in Calinan in Davao City and Panabo City in Davao del Norte, also grows cacao and coconut. — Maya M.
