On the other hand, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation’s Managing Director Susan B. Afan articulated the importance of wastes and scraps of various companies where ALKFI can make something productive out of it.

“Parang basurero’t basurera kami ng Pilipinas pero out of it nakakagawa kami ng something productive na makakatulong sa kalikasan at sa community,”she stressed out. (We are like scavengers here in the Philippines, yet we can make something productive out of those wastes, which we could help both the community and the environment at same time.”)

JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been one of the notable partners of Bantay Baterya and Bantay Langis projects of Bantay Kalikasan for the past three years. JPMC worked together with ALKFI in 2015 through its Bantay Baterya project.
