Bring Your Own Bottle
Let’s build a
zero-waste community one refill at a time
What is B.Y.O.B?
BYOB stands for Bring Your Own Bottle. It is a zero-waste store available for a limited time only where people can refill their favorite products like Datu Puti Condiments, UFC Banana Catsup, Golden Fiesta Oil, and more
BYOB’s store is made out of eco-bricks that use plastic discards as a component, coming from the Arca South Eco Hub, a project of Arca South, Green Antz and Ayala Land Inc. The store will also serve as a drop-off point for plastic materials for repurposing.
