Zero Basura Olympics


A campaign towards a zero-waste Philippines through the active participation of Philippine companies on proper waste segregation

The Zero Basura Olympics is EDNPI's advocacy campaign towards a zero-waste Philippines. It is a creative way to implement Republic Act No. 9003, also known as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. The program is a campaign to gather a critical mass consisting of the government, environmentalists, NGOs (non-government organizations) corporations, cause-oriented groups and other advocates to promote the program towards a "Basura"-free Philippines by encouraging them to practice proper waste segregation and install the system within their jurisdictions.


The project has two (2) subprograms mainly the Zero Basura Olympics for Business Division and the Mini(mize) Carbon Olympics.
