ALiN Cargo and Balikbayan Store recently honored Nanay Marissa Postre for her unwavering commitment to sustainability during the belated Philippine Independence Day celebration held at the Abu Dhabi National Theatre on Saturday, June 15, 2024. The event, organized by the Bayanihan Council Abu Dhabi, saw Nanay Marissa dazzling the audience with a unique dress crafted entirely from recycled materials, including water bottle caps, used plastic bags, and straws.

Nanay Marissa’s innovative and eco-friendly outfit not only highlighted her creativity but also underscored the importance of adopting sustainable solutions to protect our environment. In recognition of her efforts, ALiN Cargo awarded her with free shipping services, further supporting her mission of advocating for recycling and climate change awareness.

As an advocate for sustainability, Nanay Marissa has continuously emphasized the critical role of using recycled materials to mitigate environmental impact. Her dedication extends beyond fashion, as she actively promotes environmental conservation and encourages others to adopt eco-friendly practices.

Nanay Marissa’s passion for sustainability has been acknowledged multiple times, notably with the Loyalty Award at the Gawad Kasambahay 2019, where she was celebrated for her 38 years of service with a single employer and named as the Celebrity Kasambahay. Her accolades for creating gowns from recycled materials have cemented her status as a leading advocate for sustainable fashion and environmental stewardship.

Her sustainable advocacy has been published in many leading publications in the region, highlighting her contributions and inspiring others to follow in her footsteps.
