#SachetAway: On ‘World Refill Day,’ public urged to make refilling the new normal

Social media users encouraged others to support an enterprise that recycles plastic packaging in parcels in light of “World Refill Day,” a global awareness campaign marked every June 16 to encourage the public to reduce plastic waste.

Earlier this month, a Facebook post of the enterprise or initiative called The Plastic Flamingo last April resurfaced. Some social users cited its initiative as they encourage others not to throw away their plastic leftovers.

The Plastic Flamingo or The Plaf shared this post last April 29. It also provided a list of drop-off points across Metro Manila where Filipino consumers can donate.

The post read, “The Plastic Flamingo, also known as The Plaf, is a social enterprise that collects and transforms plastics into better products! We accept all types of plastics – cleaned and dried.”

A Facebook user who re-shared the post, suggested to collate the parcel pouches and donate them to Plaf instead of throwing them away.
