Datu Puti. UFC. Golden Fiesta. Locally. These brands ring a bell? That’s right! You probably have them in your kitchen or even on your dining table. These well-loved Filipino brands which have umped up each and every meal time with your family is of NutriAsia and it undeniably has been a partner of many Pinoy homes.
That being said, NutriAsia being committed in providing Masarap Masaya moments by not only bringing joy to Filipino homes, but also own up to their responsibility on a much larger scale through efforts that would be beneficial to the environment, especially in these critical times.
It was 2014 when NutriAsia started actively participating in zero-waste projects such as Jumbohalang Tambalan and DENR-EMB refill Revolution. With that, to fully carry out their vision of a more environmentally sustainable world, NutriAsia spearheaded their own project that now is standing at The Mind Museum through its support as well as the support of the Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation.
This sustainability project of NutriAsia is called BYOB also known as Bring Your Own Bottle which encourages people to bring their own reusable bottles and refill their favorite condiments and products such as Datu Puti Vinegar, Datu Puti Soy Sauce, UFC Banana Catsup, and different variants of Golden Fiesta Cooking Oil. With high hopes, this simple act will raise awareness on responsible plastic usage as well as help build a zero-waste community.
To participate in this stepping stone to sustainability, consumers have to bring their own clean and dry reusable bottles and have these refilled with their chosen products at discounted prices. Take note that considering the items are consumable, they are very strict with the bottles to be refilled, so be sure to follow their guidelines and sign their waiver.
Aside from the NutriAsia’s BYOB store being a refilling station, this one also serves as a drop-off point for plastic materials for repurposing. These donated plastic materials along all proceeds will be used to produce furnishings for Gat Andres Bonifacio High School.
The BYOB’s store – which is made from eco-bricks that use plastic discards as a component and which came from the Arca South Eco hub, a project of Arca South, Green Antz, and Ayala Land Inc. – launched last July 30, 2019 and is set to run until September 12, 2019, will be open Mondays through Sundays, 12NN to 8PM, at The Mind Museum in BGC.
