Five helpful habits to celebrate Earth Hour every day

Earth Hour 2024 is on March 23, but our efforts towards environmental preservation should extend far beyond just one hour of the year. CIMB Bank, a digital-only commercial bank deemed the best bank in the Philippines by Forbes, shares five helpful habits you can incorporate into your daily life to celebrate Earth Hour every day.


Compost organic waste

Turn your food scraps, bakuran waste, and other organic materials into nutrient-rich compost that can support plant growth in your garden. Composting is not only environmentally friendly but also a rewarding way to close the loop on organic waste. City condo dweller? Compost can also enrich the soil in your potted plants.


Conserve resources

Make conscious choices to conserve natural resources by opting for sustainable products and reducing waste. Choose products made from renewable materials, buy locally produced goods to reduce transportation emissions, and minimize packaging by purchasing items in bulk or choosing products with minimal packaging.


Create a wildlife-friendly habitat

Transform your outdoor space into a haven for wildlife by planting native flowers, shrubs, and trees that provide food and shelter for birds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Install bird feeders, bird baths, and nesting boxes to attract and support local wildlife populations.


Reduce chemical usage

Minimize your use of harmful chemicals by opting for non-toxic cleaning products, pesticides, and fertilizers. Chemical runoff from households can pollute waterways and harm aquatic ecosystems. Choose environmentally friendly alternatives to protect both your family's health and the environment.


Bank sustainably

Say goodbye to using tons of paper and having to go to a branch for your banking needs. Choose a trusted and credible digital bank for financial solutions and take part in the paperless, low carbon footprint movement. One such bank is CIMB—the pioneer in digital banking in the country—whose propriety mobile app offers access to financial products without the need for paper or carbon emissions. You can open an account anytime, anywhere and within just 5 minutes, and take advantage of the highest interest rates in its savings products.
