The amount of plastic products we consume every single day is alarming.
But did you know that you can do something to shift plastic pollution to plastic solution?
The environmental movement called The Plastic Solution encourages everyone to repurpose plastic bottles by stuffing them with other non-biodegradable products, such as plastics, straws, cigarette butts, sachets, food wrappers and the like.
So what happens to these stuffed bottles, you ask?
Well, all these bottles will be used as simple and alternative fillers in the construction of walls and fences for classrooms, houses, convention centers, and other big and small infrastructures. It’s basically a two-way solution that cleans and takes care of the environment, and at the same time, helps communities in need.
Here are some of the places where you can drop off your stuffed bottles:
- Madkahuna Shop
- All Circle hostels
- Z Hostel
- Lokal Hostel
- MNL Hostel
- Ateneo de Manila University: MVP 307 AESS Org Room
- UP: Haring Ibon Tambayan, AS Basement, UP Materials Science Society, 4th Flr West Wing of Melchor Hall
- PETA Theater
- Beatnik Inc Room 208 Llanar Building, 77 Xavierville Quezon City
So, the next time you drink soda from a plastic bottle, make sure to stuff it with other non-bio products and drop it off the points indicated above.
Remember, every stuff counts!
