RESIKLOS TEAM successfully held the soft launching of its project Resiklos Clean School Challenge (RCSC) last October 10, 2022 in the City of Binan Laguna. RCSC involves four (4) Schools in the City that will out best each other in the best recycling outputs of plastic waste in the following categories:
Waste for Art (Mixed-media Art works)
Waste for Music (Musical instruments with actual performances)
Waste for Fashion (Garments/ clothing/ Fashion)
Waste for Fun (Toys, home or room decorations, or utensils)
Waste to Build (Construction-related materials, i.e. bricks, pavers, hollow blocks, etc.)
The winning school will receive cash prizes, gift packs, Resiklos Tokens, and certificates. Aside from the abovementioned categories, they will also vie for the greatest number of Resiklos App downloads and the most number of plastic waste collected.
Present in the soft launching event were the executives of Eagral Social Tech Solutions LTD headed by its CEO, Mr. James Russel. He was accompanied by Dr. Dawen Barrios, the Head for Merchant Partnershiops and Ms. Leizel Obuga, the VP for Marketing.
The participating schools were also well-represented during the event. Present were the school principals Mr. Oliver Caliwag from Jacobo Z. Gonzales Memorial National High School, Ms. Rowena Bederico from Pagkakaisa Elementary School, Dr. Jose Romano Jalop, the Director for Basic Education Department of University of Perpetual Help, and Dr. Lourdes Sese, the Director of St. Michaels College of Laguna.
The RCSC project was welcomed warmly by the local government of Binan as they believed that their direction to sustain the environment is in line with the advocacy of Resiklos. The City Government sent messages from CENRO and from the Office of the Mayor, Hon. Walfredo Dimaguila, Jr.
It has been known that the respectable Senator, Hon. Cynthia Villar, supports Resiklos since the day it was first introduced in February 2022 during the Media Launch. Sen. Villar once again expressed her support and sent her message during the soft launching. The event recognized the participating schools and gave official banners that they can display prominently in their schools as a proof that they are one of the official challengers and are up to the challenge of making a cleaner and greener environment through the Resiklos App.
Towards the end of the program, Mr. Russell announced the official start of the contest which received cheers and applause from the excited participants. The event ended with a hope that Resiklos will bring the expected change to the current environment situation in our country and the confidence that the students and all who are involved in the Resiklos Clean School Challenge will adapt to that change and their behavior towards plastic waste management will greatly improve.
