Promote Refill Shops, Support Davao SUP Ordinance

Davao City, Philippines


Interfacing Development Interventions for Sustainability (IDIS)

Target Outcomes

The Interfacing Development Interventions for Sustainability (IDIS) recently launched its Sustainable Business Network Project that aims to determine if there are businesses in Davao City that are making an active effort to follow and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Through this project, IDIS was able to discover transformational businesses that are already practicing Zero Waste in different ways possible to include encouraging customers to bring their own reusable containers. As promising as it is, many people are still unaware that these shops exist. IDIS would like to help promote these identified businesses to further promote the circular economy principle and Zero Waste lifestyle in the city in accordance with the recently signed local policy regulating single-used plastics. IDIS would like to support promoting the said local ordinance through activities that will feature Zero Waste cities and communities in the Philippines and some of the plastic-free schools in Davao — hoping that other communities, schools, and institutions will replicate their initiatives towards a plastic-free City.

Specifically, the project aims to:

  • Promote refill shops and Zero Waste stores in Davao City.
  • Inform and educate Dabawenyos on the Regulating Single-Use Plastics Ordinance of the City.
  • Suggest single-use plastic alternatives to business owners, private institutions, and the general public.
  • Present the practice of Zero Waste community and plastic-free school to fellow barangays and schools, respectively.
  • Campaign for a plastic-free City for the benefit of the present and future Dabawenyos.
