ABOUT THE BOTE CHALLENGE

OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

The Bote Challenge seeks to recognize, promote, and adopt sustainable practices on proper plastic waste management through an annual search for a child-led, innovative solutions within communities that actively involves children and youth, women, community-based organizations, local governments, and other sectors in communities.

Nature Spring Foundation, Inc. (NSFI) – the corporate social responsibility arm of the Philippine Spring Water Resources, Inc. (PSWRI), the makers of the Nature Spring bottled water - in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), local governments, the private sector, and other key stakeholders in Cebu, leads a nation-wide campaign to launch a solutions search competition with plastic waste reduction as its central theme.

Starting its first year with Cebu province as a pilot, the competition is a strategy geared towards finding new or existing workable sustainable solutions that exist within our communities and has the potential for adoption and replication in other communities. Such solutions will be recognized as bright spots and help build a movement of initiatives that would counter the projected effects of improper waste disposal on water, health, livelihoods, climate change and disaster risks.
