Refill your favorite condiments in NutriAsia’s BYOB

/in /by

Families that segregate solid waste would agree that bulk of the collected plastic bottles are from kitchen condiments. Now, albeit for a limited period, consumers can further help the environment by reusing and refilling empty containers from their favorite NutriAsia brands, including Datu Puti, UFC and Golden Fiesta. That’s at a discounted price, for an added bonus.

Since 2014, NutriAsia has been taking part in the movement towards a zero-waste community through projects like Jumbohalang Tambalan and participation in DENR-EMB’s Refill Revolution.

This year, NutriAsia carries on with its vision of a more environmentally sustainable world through a project called Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB), which encourages users to bring their own reusable bottles and refill their favorite condiments and products like Datu Puti Vinegar, Datu Puti Soy Sauce, UFC Banana Catsup, and Golden Fiesta Cooking Oil. This simple act is expected to raise awareness on responsible plastic use and help build a zero-waste community as a stepping stone to sustainability.

Through the support of the Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation and The Mind Museum, shoppers can visit and experience the first BYOB refilling station located in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). To participate, consumers have to bring their own clean and dry reusable bottles and have these refilled with their chosen products.

BYOB’s store is made from eco-bricks that use plastic discards as a component, and which come from the Arca South Eco Hub, a project of Arca South, Green Antz and Ayala Land Inc. The store will also serve as a drop-off point for plastic materials for repurposing.

James Lim, NutriAsia’s corporate brand marketing and communications head, discusses the importance of recycling and environmental sustainability.

NutriAsia has been a trusted partner of every Filipino home in making Masarap Masaya meals. And with BYOB, we hope to go beyond and create more Masarap Masaya moments by encouraging shoppers to help build a zero-waste community in their own ways. We are also happy to share that all proceeds from BYOB, along with the plastic materials donated, will be used to produce upcycled furnishings for our beneficiary, GAT Andres Bonifacio High School,” said James Lim, NutriAsia’s corporate marketing and communications head.

BYOB, launched last July 30 and set to run until September 12, will be open Mondays through Sundays, 12 n.n. to 8 p.m., at The Mind Museum in BGC. For more info, please visit https://nutriasia.com/bring-your-own-bottle.
