With the alarming rate of increase in solid wastes in the Philippines, various organizations and institutions including EcoNest Philippines, Bokashi Pinoy Composting, St. John Bosco Parish Tondo, and SACHI-Group Inc. will be collaborating to start the #TrashtoNature program. Trash to Nature, an initiative launched by the sustainability alliance aims to be an avenue for waste collection, composting, a drop-off incentive program, and sustainable purchasing. This will encourage and educate communities on how to close the loop of circularity by bringing their organic wastes back to nature and turning them into resources. In support of the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, this initiative highlights waste minimization using proper environmental practices and the utilization of valuable resources. Join us on the 17th of July, 2021, from 3:00-5:00 P.M. at the St. John Bosco Tondo Soccer Field to venture towards a sustainable future!

Bokashi Pinoy Philippines Charges Forward to Educating the Market
Bokashi Pinoy Composting has been working hard to provide accessible solutions to Filipinos when it comes to sustainability. Bokashi Pinoy has changed the perspective and practices of many Filipinos through their advocacy, which was rooted from their value of relationships and love for people, especially our landless farmers and farm owners. Their founder has gone through a lot of trial and error just to come up with alternative sources of the bran for the bokashi and with her research, she was able to come up with the Bokashi Ipa. Their bokashi bran did not only provide solutions but gave countless opportunities for livelihood to Filipino farmers.
Bokashi Pinoy did not stop there and proceeded to influence various communities by changing their mindset when it comes to managing solid wastes through what they call the BaZero Communities. These communities led by certified Bokashi Pinoy Practitioners learn about managing their waste in their own community and homes through experiencing the 30 Day Garbage to Garden Program. The BaZERO Program was launched through a grant from Coca-Cola Foundation who experienced for themselves the life changing experience that is the 30-day Garbage to Garden Challenge. They believed that the systemic issue we are facing around Solid Waste Management - requires a holistic solution with behavior modification as its foundation and core.
Making this even more impactful is our collaboration through #TrashtoNature program and as defined by Bokashi pinoy, trash to nature “completes the cycle of life, death, decay and regeneration, making it easier to understand a lesson in both spirituality and earth-based science that there is no such thing as trash/ garbage or waste”.
