The Quezon City Government, Greenpeace Philippines and Impact Hub Manila have joined forces to launch the “Kuha sa Tingi” Program.

The Kuha sa Tingi is a community-based program establishing refill hubs in sari-sari stores to help address plastic pollution.

Initially, refill stations will be installed in 30 sari-sari stores across the city where consumers can bring their own reusable containers to refill commodities such as liquid detergent, fabric conditioner and dishwashing liquid. The project aims to provide people with alternatives to products in sachets and other kinds plastic packaging.
