Mondelez Philippines: Snack Giant Partners With the Plastic Flamingo to Recycle Waste Into Eco-Bricks

By

Snack Food company Mondelez Philippines recently announced that it would “substantially” invest in plastic waste management and has teamed up with social enterprise The Plastic Flamingo to recycle waste into eco-bricks.

In a virtual briefing, Mondelez Philippines announced that it will invest an undisclosed amount in solutions that help manage waste and has teamed up with Manila-based The Plastic Flamingo that focuses on recycling plastic waste before it reaches the oceans.

Mondelez Philippines country manager for Corporate and Government Affairs Joseph Fabul said that the company plans to recycle some 40 metric tons of post-consumer plastic packaging into a sustainable wood alternative that can be used for construction.

Initially, the two organizations collaborated for a project of 1 metric ton collection and now will expand to collecting and recycling around 40,000 kg of waste that will be picked up from designated locations and processed into recycled eco-lumber.
