In celebration of Zero Waste Month this January, EMB-NCR joined UP community and other advocates of Zero Waste Management in a film showing at UP Film center entitled “The Story of Plastic.” The film depicts how the discovery of plastic made life easier yet our environment has been damaged due to plastic pollution..Do you know that most plastics are non-biodegradable and can remain as thrash for more than a decade? Burning  or putting them in incinerators causes the emission of hazardous chemicals that are both detrimental to human health and the environment. Be responsible, manage our residual wastes and aim for a Zero Waste.
