Senator Elect Cynthia Villar Launched First Plastic Recycling Factory in the Metro

Who would've thought that Mrs. Villar will make it during the Senatorial Race last May 2013 election, after being bashed and talked about by the medical community. 

Good thing she made it. Giving her more chances/opportunity to serve the public/masses. To continue to educate people about small-scale business, entrepreneurship and a lot more.

Senator-elect Mrs. Cynthia Villar wasted no time in fulfilling her promise of creating livelihood to the poor, while protecting the environment. 

She, together with Las Pinas Rep. Mark Villar and Sen. Manny Villar, recently inaugurated the first Waste Plastic Recycling Factory in Metro Manila, which turns plastic wastes into durable school chairs that could last up to 20 years.
 
“We have a lot of plastic wastes here in Metro Manila. When disposed improperly, these result in clogging of our drainage and eventually cause flooding, spread of diseases, and many others. So we thought of processing these plastic wastes and come up into something useful. That is when I read about this technology in Davao, which processes plastic wastes into school chairs,” relayed Mrs. Villar.





Villar went to Davao herself to witness if the technology is really working.

“I have been using biodegradable wastes as resource in my other livelihood projects. I was so happy when I saw this technology, because now, we can also process non-biodegradable wastes, and we have tons of them here in Metro Manila,” relayed Mrs. Villar.

Villar said she is very proud of this project not only for the livelihood it brings to the poor, but also to the environmental benefit it brings.

“In processing the unavoidable plastic wastes into something useful, like school chairs, we are not only cleaning and protecting the environment, but we are, at the same time, providing livelihood to the poor – to the workers in the factory who are processing the wastes,” said Villar.

She explained, the plastic wastes recycling factory located in Ilaya, Las Pinas City is a pilot project of the Villar Foundation.

Villar said if this project will be successful, it can be replicated in other provinces in the country.
Villar earned the moniker, Misis Hanepbuhay, because of her many livelihood projects built benefitting the poor.

Before running for Senate, Villar served as Congresswoman of Las Pinas for 9 years and became Managing Director of the Villar Foundation, where she continued providing livelihood projects in 200 towns and cities all over the country.

The waste plastic recycling factory is in addition to the existing livelihood project or so-called green social enterprises of the Villar Foundation: waterlily basket weaving enterprise, coconet weaving enterprise, handmade paper factory, handloom blanket weaving enterprise, charcoal-making enterprise, citronella oil-making enterprise and organic fertilizer making factory. 

As of latest count, incoming senator Cynthia Villar has established over 230 pilot centers of the livelihood enterprise all over the country. She will pursue this advocacy even as a senator as she vowed to put up one pilot center in each of the 1,600 towns and cities in the Philippines. Her husband, Senator Manny Villar, will continue her other advocacy other the Villar Foundation. 

The Villar Foundation continues to warn the public about misleading text messages using its name, it has no existing raffle draws or promotion, so please ignore or report to the foundation. Please see their warning.
