La Mesa Ecopark is officially marked as the first cashless park as GCash recently activated the QR Code (Quick Response Code) along with its first Employee Engagement Activity(EEA) with Bantay Kalikasan, the environment arm of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya.

QR Codes were installed in the 22 stations all over the park. It’s a cashless technology making it convenient for visitors where they can just scan and pay.

One hundred (100) employees from Mynt, the operator of GCASH, also participated in the Employee Engagement Activity(EEA) at the La Mesa Ecopark as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility.

Repainting the picnic and swimming pool areas and varnishing the entrance wooden fences are some of the activities that the employees enjoyed.   

“This is the kind of activity that brings people together because people in general care for the environment”, said Anthony Thomas, President and CEO of Mynt.

Bantay Kalikasan Program Director Jen Santos also expressed her gratitude to the partnership because visitors can now do the transactions through their mobile phones and be part of the advocacy.

The QR Code has been provided at various areas of Ecopark. One just has to tap on Scan QR, point a phone’s camera at the QR code, enter the amount to pay, and confirm the payment.

The partnership aims to convince the digital and non-digital natives that helping, may it be big or small, can go a long way in the lives of children, communities, and those in need.
