Mindbuilders Preschool’s Plastic Collection Drive Sets New Record!

Mindbuilders Preschool’s Plastic Collection Drive Sets New Record!

On February 6 and 7 along Tropical Avenue, BF International, Las Piñas City, Mindbuilders Preschool organized another plastic collection drive together with their strategic partners Envirotech Waste Recycling, Inc. and Pure Oceans Philippines.

The result? 200.7 kilograms worth of soft and hard plastic materials were collected from the many people (including myself) who passed by their school. To put things mathematically, 200.7 kilograms is a 128% increase over what was collected last time.

You must be wondering…how did such a very big increase happen?

According to Mindbuilders Preschool directress Marah V. Estuesta, a lot of families of their students, including alumni, picked up the habit (cleaning used plastics instead of throwing it to the trash can and collecting it until the next drop-off drive.) She also said that CTSI Logistics, a company who saw their FB post sent over five boxes of plastic materials as well.

Already this the third plastic collection drive of Mindbuilders Preschool that I wrote about and, of course, I donated for the third time as well.

For the newcomers reading this, the materials at the preschool were picked up by Pure Ocean Philippines which forwarded them to Envirotech Waste Recycling. After that, Envirotech Waste Recycling upcycles all the collected plastic and produce brand new furniture and items out of them.

While I don’t know yet when will the next plastic collection drive happen at Mindbuilders Preschool, you can get updates from them by visiting their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mindbuilderspreschool.page/

Right now, the victims of the eruption are relying on whatever assistance the local authorities and private donors could provide them. According to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Health (DOH), the amount of assistance extended to the victims exceeded P80 million.

Regarding where they are staying at, almost forty thousand families are living temporarily in over five hundred thirty evacuation centers.

These latest details only mean one thing: donations to help the victims are still needed until now. Check out this Associated Press YouTube video.

Plastics Collection Drive at Minbduilders Preschool Nets 88 Kilograms Worth of Materials

The latest plastics drop-off project (a collection drive) that took place at Mindbuilders Preschool along Tropical Avenue, BF International, Las Piñas City on November 5 and 6 turned out to be another success for the school and its strategic partners Envirotech Waste Recycling, Inc. and Pure Oceans Philippines.

According to Mindbuilders Preschool Directress Marah V. Estuesta, donors this time around dropped off a total of 88 kilograms worth of plastic materials composed of plastic bottles (the most visible ones I saw during my visit), candy wrappers, take-out containers, CD and DVD cases, plastic containers of electronic products and the like.

At 88 KG, that’s an improvement of 3.9% over the amount the partners collected from the donors on August 29 and 30. To put things in perspective, 88 KG is over 190 pounds.

All the materials were collected by Pure Ocean Philippines and forwarded them to Envirotech Waste Recycling. Envirotech specializes in upcycling which is the process of making new furniture and items out of old materials (specifically plastic). As shown on local TV, Envirotech has the equipment and processes to upcycle collected plastic material and turn them into brand new plastic chairs and tables. The conversion processes generate a very minimal amount of fumes and below the limit set by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

More plastic materials were collected from donors this time.

You must be wondering if I myself donated any plastic in this latest project. Yes I did! I donated even more plastic materials than the previous time. I do care about the environment and I also saw the opportunity to get rid of plastic materials from our household.

If you intend to get rid of all excessive plastic materials of your household or your business establishment (or your church), then mark your calendar for the next plastics drop-off project at Mindbuilders Preschool scheduled for February 6 and 7, 2020. Knowing that, you better start preparing for it if you intend to reduce plastic materials at your place.
