Megawide’s corporate social responsibility arm, Megawide Foundation, recently launched its latest sustainable community-building project with Green Antz Builders and the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Taytay, Rizal. Eco-friendly waiting sheds located along the streets of Kalayaan Park and Club Manila East road will be made of recycled concrete materials from Megawide’s Taytay precast and batching plants.
The locations were identified together with the Taytay Mayor George Ricardo “Joric” Gacula II.
“Megawide partnered with Green Antz to introduce innovations that can help reduce industrial waste,” said Megawide’s AVP for corporate affairs Jason Torres said.
“The project was able to recycle two tons of concrete waste from our plants and divert 100 kilos of plastic wastes from communities that could have ended up in a landfill.”
Green Antz used Megawide’s concrete wastes to produce recycled products such as Eco Bricks and Eco Cast for the pillars of the waiting sheds and Eco Boards for the benches. At the launch of the waiting sheds project were from left to right: Megawide HSE manager Chris Tamayo; Taytay Mayor George “Joric” R. Gacula II; Green Antzpresident Engr. Rommel Benig; and Megawide Foundation CSR program manager Angelo Tapia.
