RJ went home the other day with these “SOS” (sandata on sakuna), whistle and flash led, from Eat Bulaga. Eat Bulaga has this project “Plastic ni Juan” wherein the Filipinos are encouraged to collect plastic bottles in exchange of the “SOS”. These plastic bottles will be recycled to plastic chairs and will be donated to public schools. It’s the best way not only to eliminate plastics from the garbage and landfills but also to provide mono block chairs to public schools.
We all know that aside from the lack of teachers, lack of textbooks and chairs remain the perennial problems of public schools. It’s because the budget in education cannot sustain the growing numbers of students each year. And this initiative from Eat Bulaga, with our cooperation of course, is so impressive. It could help thousands of Filipino students to have sturdy and comfortable chairs in school while diminishing the plastics that are circulating and clog on drainages.
Eat Bulaga by the way, is a longest running noontime variety show in the Philippines. It’s now on it’s 33rd year and already helped many Filipinos. If you want to have the above SOS gadgets or simply help, don’t throw your plastic bottles for thousands of students need them.
