Environmental Project in Cebu City for greener waste management.



With the ongoing issues of trying to get a community project going and something that can prove that not only things like recycling can create jobs, be viable and at the same time unload some of the burden of waste. Its good to see that stuff is ongoing on a much larger scale and its here in Cebu. This video shows what can be done with a bit of cooperation and less egos. Its not about what I did or what is in it for me but what it does for our environment and if it creates jobs along the way all the better. I often wondered if I was mad trying to do these sort of things and here is proof that I am right and I hope these things expand. Nope I am not an obsessed hippy looking for the ideal world. But this project (in the video) created more than 21 jobs out of garbage at the same time reduced the waste. There is a saying “beggars can’t be choosers” and I agree. But at the same time it doesn’t mean we can’t help them help themselves. It doesn’t mean we have to forget others. Life is about choices and I think things like this no matter how small if it changes just a few lives it is the beginning of something a lot bigger and better.

    that presentation was really impressive. I really appreciate the barangays that promote such project that not only it’s beneficial to the environment, but also to the community envolved in such projects that produces money from garbade and creates job opportunities that helps improve the lives of the families in a barangay.

    Agree with you Luiedaclan, its important to see the positive side in the solutions and that it can also be many fold.
