Name of the campaign:
The DLSL “NO to Single Use Plastic Bottle and Bring Your Container” Campaigns on Creating Sustainable Futures

A brief description of the campaign:

Anchored in the De la Salle Lipa's strategic direction of Creating Sustainable Futures is the campaign on banning the individual plastic bottled water and beverages on the campus and in all its internal & external activities. The “Stop PET Bottle and Bring Your Container Campaign” started in the academic year 2017-2018 and has encouraged school stakeholders to bring their water containers and use the available water hydration and drinking fountains all over campus. Policy and campaign awareness has been intensified through schools' digital platforms, social media, community memorandums, and meetings. A “Conserving is Cool” publication materials and posters have also been posted in strategic areas of the school.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

The school generates a total of 10,317 kilograms of recyclable wastes (plastics bottles, mixed-used papers & cartons, empty cans, aluminum, and other plastics) in the academic year 2016-2017 alone. Of these, 39% were single-use plastic bottles. A tremendous decrease of 32% (from 39% to 7%) in AY 2017-2018 and 34% (from 39% to 5%) in AY 2018-2019 has been noted from the time of initiative implementation and awareness campaign.
Upon initiative implementation and to address the impact of the initiative on the community, the institution funded the installation of thirty-three (33) units of drinking fountains to augment the existing 45 drinking fountains and water hydration stations inside the campus. More so, it scaled up the use of the school’s own potable water refilling station serving the different offices and concessionaires all over campus.
