As a consumer, I always try to find ways on how to recycle bottles and containers of condiments that I use. Sometimes, I use bottles as flower vases or old containers as a bin for laundry items instead of just throwing them away. I also donate some of them to various organizations who can make use of these items and turn them into something useful (or artful, too!).
Well, talking about putting old things to good use and being able to reduce, reuse, and recycle, I learned that NutriAsia, the country’s top condiment maker, is one with the community in taking care of the environment through the reduction of plastic waste.
In fact, NutriAsia has been active since 2014 in taking part in the movement towards a zero-waste community through projects like Jumbohalang Tambalan and their participation in DENR-EMB’s Refill Revolution.
Just a few days ago, NutriAsia launched the Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) campaign at The Mind Museum in JY Campos Park, BGC.
This BYOB initiative helps encourage us, users, to bring our own reusable bottles to have them refilled with our favorite condiments and products like Datu Puti Vinegar, Datu Puti Soy Sauce, UFC Banana Catsup, and Golden Fiesta Cooking Oil. Nice!
With this campaign, NutriAsia carries on with its vision of a more environmentally sustainable world. This simple act is expected to raise awareness on responsible plastic use and help build a zero-waste community.
Here’s how it’s done:
Here are the discounted prices:
I had my reusable bottles refilled with UFC Banana Catsup, Datu Puti Vinegar, and Datu Puti Soy Sauce. My kitchen staples.
And everytime you refill your bottles, you will be asked to press their counter button as many times as the number of bottles you had refilled during your visit. This allows them to track the number of bottles refilled which everyone can see through a digital tally board located outside the BYOB store.
You’ll be interested to know that the NutriAsia BYOB store is made from eco-bricks that use plastic discards as a component. These come from the Arca South Eco Hub, a project of Arca South, Green Antz and Ayala Land Inc. The store will also serve as a drop-off point for plastic materials for repurposing.
But wait! There’s more! NutriAsia is also happy to share that all proceeds from BYOB, along with the plastic materials donated, will be used to produce upcycled furnishings for their beneficiary — GAT Andres Bonifacio High School.
Good job, NutriAsia!
The NutriAsia BYOB kiosk ends on September 12, 2019. So, make sure to plan your visit soon and tell your family and friends about it as well.
