Trying to come up with your own solution?
We’re all about helping more people come up with their own solutions to Marine Plastic Litter & marine conservation. That’s how we started too, years of research before we worked with communities. Make sure you know the ecosystem, and identify what you can do that will have the most impact. Here are a few helpful leads:
Trying to help your community?
We all influence a community – it can just be our family, our neighbors, our parish or co-workers or barangay. Sharing information is one of the first ways to get started organizing a community to change.
To learn why the Philippines is the 3rd biggest dumper of plastic in the ocean, Jenna Jambeck & Conservation International’s study is a must read.
To learn about circular design, started by Elle McArthur as a bigger picture solution to marine plastic litter, check out the Circular Design Guide by IDEO and the Elle McArthur foundation.
To learn more about Precious Plastic & Dave Hakkens’ nifty mission to get more people upcycling their own plastic, check out the website & community.
For Precious Plastic Philippines, search for and message them on Facebook.
Does your barangay have a copy of RA 9003: Ecological Solid Waste Management act of the Philippines?
Our own Atty. Xilca translated the law for a quicker digest on the responsibilities & guides for their waste management actions.
A hard copy will entail some cost, but we can send you copies as well. Kindly send us an email to request.
If you’re putting stickers on your bins, these labels might be useful for you.
Are you starting to segregate?
Here’s a quick guide for segregating at home. Or a chart for the simplest waste management system ever. The secret is just segregating from the start.
