Dear Friend,

Happy Easter Season! 

Isn't is amazing that this Easter month, a celebration of our new life won by Christ, is also a time to honor our mothers, who gave us life?

Life itself is an amazing gift.  Hearing the birds chirping outside your window, finding something you were looking for, getting a hug from someone you love or even just getting a parking space are all amazing moments of life! 

Can you add more amazing things to my list?  Ready, go think.  Did you find more than one?

We want you to have an a-MAY-zing month so we hope you like our features and have a blessed and fruitful summer season!

"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes." - E.E. Cummings

ECOrner: Wanted Plastic!

Our waste dumps are filled with these colorful, mostly non-biodegradeable material... plastic bags!  Some say it takes 20 to 500 years to disintegrate and then it dangerously mixes with soil. Papemelroti has waged a war on plastic bags and want to give them a new lease on life.  We hope you'll join us!

Just round them up and send them off to any of our branches.  We'll upcycle them into products that can still be enjoyed for generations to come!  Please don't forget to label them "For recycling" to ensure they go where they should!


See all things locally handmade, OOAK (one of a kind), artsy, crafty, eco-friendly stuff and everything you like.  This event is the first of its kind and is organized by Filipino artists.

Reseller's Corner:

Designing Your Identity

Each entrepreneur must have his own identity to survive in the marketplace.  If he follows the crowd, he is swallowed by it.  As a retailer, recall is key and to create recall, one must have an identity that stands out from the rest.

How does one develop his identity?  As a businessman you must have purpose.  We're also not talking about making a profit as your primary purpose.  When your company is able to fill a niche that a segment of the population are looking for, then you have fulfilled a key purpose which is service.  Profit will follow once this key purpose is accomplished.

*Next month we will be focusing on another aspect of finding your business identity in the entrepreneur's talents and gifts.
