“When we buy fresh produce from the market we just bring our eco-bags. There are some ingredients we use that have plastic packaging already so we place that inside our ecobricks that came from our cooking oil bottles which in turn we will use to make chairs and tables.”
While this entails more work than simply chucking out trash, according to James, they do this so people can see that it’s actually possible to recycle and reduce waste that ends up in landfills.

This is Apol, an out-of-school youth whom @surfsurfcafe is providing a part-time job. Last Saturday he climbed some coconuts for the #cafe and today we asked him to make bamboo straws for the coconuts because we refuse to use single-use plastics in our simple café. 😁😉 Now we can give bamboo straws to customers who order our coconuts. So they too will stop using plastic straws. Amazing how nature provides not only the drink but the straws too! 🌴 #bamboostraws #notosingleuseplastic #surfsurfcafé #surfsurfcafe #livelihood #bamboo #coconut #supportlocal #zerowaste #zerowastecafe #palawan #puertoprincesa #Nagtabon #Nagtabonbeach
