“The pandemic has changed how we see the world. We are in the food industry, and to go back to basics, especially supporting those who support us, is a reality. The farmer community supports our industry. The core and the foundation of a restaurant are fresh ingredients and produce,” said Anzani.

“Supporting local is the most visible solution moving forward. And you live by example. Hopefully those around you and the people that surround you get influenced by the life you live. Everything starts at home, you need to live the walk,” she added. 

Also joining the first wave of the series is reality TV chef JR Royol who shared the same sentiments about the significance of personally observing sustainable habits in one’s everyday life.

“It is actually a privilege to be part of this great initiative. Being a chef, it is a natural response to an opportunity to have a positive impact in any way we can. Sharing my skills to raise funds and awareness is the least that I can do. Realistically speaking, we should start (living sustainably) in our homes and workplace since these are the areas that we can change in real time by consciously adapting to environment-friendly best practices,” said the MasterChef Filipino Edition winner.

He also encouraged people to immediately shift to a more sustainable lifestyle to help #ChangeTheEnding for the environment.

“We should act now. We can and we have the courage to summon the necessary strength to positively impact our surroundings. We start with the simplest and mundane things. It doesn’t have to be grand gestures—just consistent, conscious practices for conservation and preservation to be established,” said Royol. 

Kawali-Kasan is set to run from August 16 to October 2020. Visit WWF-Philippines’ official social media pages for more information.
