PHILIPPINES: Pasig River cleanup

The project aims first to establish chemical recycling facilities to create value from plastic waste that would otherwise end up in the environment. Secondly, we establish a river-based collection system to immediately halt the flow of plastic into the Manila Bay from Manila through Pasig river. For land-based collection, we work with.

  • Plastic Credit Exchange (PCEx) who have a plan to establish 100 plastic waste collection points in the City of Manila
  • Unilever Philippines to scale up the existing collection activities and with
  • ICTSI Foundation to scale up the ongoing waste management activities and community collection in two communities in the Manila port area.
