Globe launches mobile recycling program: Globe Project 1 Phone

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 10:07 PM
We are now in the era where technology develops faster than we anticipated and different types of gadgets from low end to high end smartphones are becoming available to Filipinos which resulted to increased in the rate of upgrade. Because of this, a lot of discarded devices also soared. The impact of these throw away devices, generate e-waste, which results in the release of tons of toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and beryllium to be released into the air and seep into the ground and waterways.
How do we solve the e-waste dilemma? By putting one old phone to good use instead of throwing it out.
Globe leads the country's biggest and most ambitious mobile recycling program—Project 1 Phone. By donating just one unused, non-working or damaged phone, tablet, phone battery, or even an old personal computer to Project 1 Phone, each Filipino can do his share in minimizing the environmental impact of e-waste and countering its harmful effects.
Here's a video that explains the harmful effects of e-waste and how we can combat them by donating old phones to Globe's campaign: 

Here's an infographic version:

“Globe is not only dedicated to growing its business but is also committed to addressing environmental concerns and promoting human health amidst the fast growth of this high-tech industry.  Being a communications provider, Globe takes responsibility in educating the people on how to dispose their old mobile devices and computers as well as end-of-life mobile battery packs and chargers in the best way possible,” said Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President of Globe Corporate Communications.

By donating unused, non-working, or damaged phones and tablets, mobile phone batteries, and even personal computers to the campaign, each Filipino would be able to do his share in minimizing not only the environmental impact of e-waste but also counter its harmful effects on health such as skin diseases and possible damage to vital organs and the skeletal system.

Globe also makes it easy for its customers and other stakeholders to participate in the drive by providing donation bins in participating Globe Stores in various parts of the country (for the complete list, please visit the Globe Telecom website

Schools, corporations, local government units, and other private and non-government organizations may also participate in the program by adopting recycle bins.  Interested parties may email Globe at

All devices and accessories that Globe will gather shall be turned over to TES-AMM, a leading electronics waste recycler which will take responsibility for at end-of-life products to ensure that they are managed responsibly. 

TES-AMM will, likewise, work on recovering precious metals and plastics from the recycled gadgets.  Globe has committed to build at least 40 school buildings in the province of Aklan and proceeds of Project 1 Phone will be used to add to the said number since hundreds of classrooms are still needed in the area.

TV5 continues to lead the way in delivering active and relevant public service through its various CSR efforts and programs that ultimately aim to promote health and wellness among Filipinos. 

Most recently, TV5 and Radyo5 in Davao joined forces anew to launch a whole slew of month-long activities in the region that combined fitness, health, and fun, which is the Kapatid Network’s simple way of ‘giving back’ to the community.  More importantly, these CSR activities also reflect the Network’s belief that a healthier, more productive and more efficient citizenry will translate to a more progressive community.

Such activities included “Zumba Saturdays” wherein DavaoeƱos of all ages were able to participate in the country’s latest easy-and-safe exercise craze. This activity, which was in partnership with Rotary 2000, had more than 200 participants, with families and groups of friends making this their weekly bonding and fitness activity.  

The Kapatid Network and Radyo5 Davao once again partnered with Rotary 2000 for a blood-letting activity in support of the Philippine National Red Cross’ drive to increase the dwindling platelet supply for dengue victims. The network proudly served as the blood-letting activity’s main organizer as well as its critical partner for information dissemination.  

Hand-in-hand this time with the Davao Doctor’s Hospital, TV5 and Radyo5 Davao also organized the “Operation Bukol and OB Screening” program with a number of surgeons, OB gynecologists and other specialists.  The program is aimed at addressing cancer prevention through early detection.  More than just the usual consultations, the doctors on call also conducted pre-natal screenings and free operations to remove cysts, mass and tumors.  

Meanwhile, for the month of September, TV5 and Radyo5 Davao are all set to take their ‘give back’ initiative even further by also spearheading a city-wide feeding program for children in various barangays in Davao. This activity is also meant to encourage children to drink milk for healthier bodies and sharper minds.  

For interested donors and partners of TV5 and Radyo5 Davao’s upcoming CSR initiatives, please contact TV5 Davao’s Public Service Desk Coordinator, Sally Sanglay, via +63908-886-0442

Globe implements Share-A-Load validation message to help curb text scams

Posted By: Sarah Jean - 11:20 PM
Globe has implemented an additional step for Share-A-Load transactions, in which customers will be asked to confirm their transaction through a validation text message:
You are about to share PXXX load with 0916XXXXXXX. Reply YES within 5 minutes to proceed. P1/transaction. Report text scams
The validation message will come from 2652xxxxxxxxx, where the last 9 digits are the transaction number. Replying to the message is free of charge. 
Those who do not reply to the validation text within 5 minutes will receive the following message:
We're sorry, but your Share-A-Load/Promo transaction has been cancelled because the response time exceeded 5 minutes. Please try again. Thanks!
This is the latest addition to Globe's efforts in reducing instances of customers falling prey to Share-A-Load scams. Recently, Globe has also reduced the maximum amount of Share-A-Load transactions to P150 for prepaid customers and P300 for postpaid customers.
Following Globe's intensified efforts to combat text spam and scam early this year, the number of reports through the website ( has reached over 42,000 since it was created in June.

“We want to continuously protect our customers against these scams. By putting in place this additional measure, we would help prevent our customers from unwittingly undertaking Share-A-Load transactions,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Senior Vice-President for Corporate Communications. She noted that even with widespread communication efforts, some customers are still unaware that by adding the number “2” before the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient, they are actually doing a Share-A-Load transaction.

Last month, Globe reduced the amount of Share-A-Load transaction to a maximum of P150 for prepaid customers and P300 for postpaid customers to counter text scams asking for P500 Share-A-Load transactions. Text scam messages are varying everyday using spiels like rewards, loyalty, MSF discount, roaming and bill overcharge, waiver of charges, refunds, etc.

Crisanto also urged Globe customers to immediately report thru and provide all the details required. Numbers that are reported as source of text scams will be immediately blocked from the network.  Following the telecommunication company’s intensified efforts to combat text spams and text scams early this year, the number of reports using the website has reached over 42,000 since it was created in June 2014.
