We have designed and distributed hundreds of canvas eco-bags bearing our most current awareness campaign slogan: “Ang Dugong ay Buhay” (The Dugong is Life). The bags are a useful tool for helping spread awareness on dugong conservation as they are highly visible and are a favourite of members of the local community.
The bags have a second but equally important purpose: it could negate or at least reduce the use of plastic bags by the community – a major non-biodegradable threat to the local environment. The eco-bags are made from sturdy canvass fabric that would last for years and is a material that is quite biodegradable, making it not only useful but safe for the environment as well.
The bags and related conservation awareness campaign are made possible through the support of the Prince Bernhard Nature Fund.
