With the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 8 million Filipinos are exposed to the risks of infection as they go out every day to provide for their households’ needs. Among the essential workers at risk of daily exposure are delivery riders. In fact, according to Nielsen IQ, online shopping in the Philippines have soared to 325 percent, to lessen the risk of exposure in procuring essentials.1
But behind every online purchase is delivery rider who risks his or her safety to keep you safe at home.
As one of the biggest courier services in the country, serving thousands of Filipino homes, Ariel partnered with J&T Express to provide one thousand riders with #WelcomeHomeSafe packages containing the new Ariel Hygiene Pro.
Since the start of lockdown, J&T rider Edison Awa, 31, washes his daily uniform with Ariel, 3-4 times a week to protect himself and his family. He shared, “Masasabi ko na kampante ako sa linis na bigay ng Ariel Hygiene Pro dahil sa subok na magaling sa pagtanggal ng dumi at germs ang Ariel. Masaya ako sa partnership na ito dahil kami ay nabigyan ng libreng produkto ng Ariel. Ito ay lubos na makakatulong sa aking pamilya hindi lang sa paglalaba, pati na din sa pagiging malinis at protektado.”
With Ariel Hygiene Pro’s triple deep clean technology, every rider’s uniform gets the ultimate clean experience delivered via AntiBac booster formula that removes tough stains, 99.9% of germs and viruses.
“We are grateful that J&T Express is a part of this collaboration with Ariel Philippines in recognizing the hard work of our delivery riders. Despite the challenges that delivery riders faced during this COVID-19 crisis, they have shown resilience and dedication to fulfil their job without any hesitation. Thus, they truly deserve to be protected and safeguarded from viruses especially as they get home from work,” shared Zoe Chi, Vice President of J&T Express.
