Waste not, want not

The Ayala Foundation holds waste markets every Friday at the parking lot of the different Ayala Malls. This one is at the parking lot of Trinoma, the only Ayala Mall in Quezon City. They buy junk computer and electronic equipment, appliances, paper, PET bottles and batteries. A great way to clear your house of junk, make a little money, and help mother Earth by not adding to her trash.

I would love that option here. In my area of the U.S. we have to PAY to throw out electronics equpiment and old computers, or just sneak them into the regular trash...which isn't good.

I am a firm believe in recycling, not only trash but everything from clothes to electronic equipment. Also I'm a practitioner of sparse living.

We live in such a wasteful society, esp. in the US where conspicuous consumption is rampant. Everyone has three or four TVs, multiple DVD players, video games, etc. Almost all my friends have multiple iPods. WHY?

wow, what a great idea. We have recycling in the US, but no clear and obvious way like this to recycle electronics...so off to the dump!

This is what we all need - corporate as well as individual's responsibilities to save our shared earth. Great post, Hilda. I think we could all learn from what Ayala Foundation does in the Philippines.

hi, i'm new here, i got here through layrayski's blog.
this is a good thing, i like what you show in your blog - i didn't know for example that such recycling stint's happen in manila. i used to rally with haribon during my college days and would bring my own bag when i do grocery shopping in shoppesville in katipunan. they would just give me a funny look at the check out counter.
i'm also a firm believer in recycling, it can be tedious at times but i know i am doing a good thing.
