Apparently, improper garbage disposal is one of the biggest problems that we have in the city. According to one of the reports by the Metro Manila Development Authority, 3000 cubic meters (or 600 trucks) is the approximate volume of trash that are collected everyday. These garbage are found in landfills but a significant amount are also dumped in rivers and waterways.
If we will take a closer look, these garbage balloon up trash bags because they are not compressed. Imagine a bin filled with trash that are in their proper “composure” — will it be the solution to a lesser volume of trash and lesser annoyance?
CSR Idea: Thin Garbage Movement
The Thin Garbage Movement is a CSR Life Idea on proper waste disposal, particularly of wrapper or anything made from paper, plastic, or anything foldable. The Thin Garbage Movement suggests that we fold instead of crumple, that we fold instead of dropping it just that. Little by little, compressing our garbage in those simple ways will enable a huge difference.
So, are you up for a challenge?
Below are some ideas.
