We need Volunteers TO HELP US SORT AND SEGREGATE COLLECTED PLASTIC WASTE!
We are a volunteer group in Pandacan, Manila engaged in taking action to protect our environment. Currently, we are working on a plastic waste recovery and recycling initiative. We have succeeded in creating a collection/sorting system and getting industry partners to recycle plastic waste into useful bricks for recycling.
For this particular volunteer opportunity, we are partnering with Social Plastic - Plastic Bank at the KAMI muna po, abang Politiko: Good Earth Day Festival 2019 on April 27 and 28!
As part of the campaign to stop the flow of destructive plastic waste into our oceans, Plastic Bank will exchange 2 kilos of plastic waste with an ecobag to help you go zero-waste when you are at the grocery.
The following will be accepted:
- laminates such as empty sachets and snack packaging
- sando bags
- plastic wrapping and packaging material
- used tetra packs
- used plastic bottles
-- used paper and cartons
ONLY CLEAN AND DRY PLASTICS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Offer is available until supplies last!
On Saturday, Plastic Bank will start accepting plastic at 4pm until 9pm; Sunday 8am-9pm.
Tumatanggap po sila ng volunteers sa Sabado, 4-9pm. You may also contact them on how to partner with them for an incentives-based waste management program in your community. The Plastic Bank is willing to exchange recovered recyclables for rice and ecobags.
Call them at 09173260319.
