Cebu Pacific’s continued eco-friendly efforts have brought forth biodegradable donation bags, which now feature as part of the Change for Good campaign. The campaign supports disadvantaged Filipino children through UNICEF.
The new plastic bags, made with low-density polyethylene material, feature an additive that helps speed up photodegradation and biodegradation. In comparison with synthetic plastics, which take hundreds of years to disintegrate, the additive-included plastics should take between three and six months — the exact duration is dependent on factors like temperature and moisture levels — to fully decompose.
The initiative shows how CEB and UNICEF are committed to helping future generations live in a world free of the life-threatening effects of climate change. Give today to support the Change for Good campaign and know that you’re advocating for change in more ways than one.
