The Zero Waste Virtual Tour website is a repository and mapping of active Zero Waste cities, project sites, and communities in the Philippines under the Mother Earth Foundation and its members.
Visitors of this site can virtually check the activities, success stories, and campaigns in achieving a zero waste community.
Mother Earth Foundation (MEF) is a non-stock, non-profit organization actively engaged in addressing waste and toxic pollution, climate change, and other health and environmental justice issues. It is best known for its advocacy of Zero Waste through the systematic reduction and proper management of waste.
Since its founding in 1998, MEF has waged a nationwide campaign to train communities, schools, barangays (the smallest government unit), cities and municipalities on how to reduce and manage waste so that it brings no harm to public health or the environment and does not exacerbate climate change.
MEF helps local governments implement Republic Act 9003, or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act. Many of the communities and LGUs the MEF has trained have gained recognition as models of ecological waste management, winning various national, regional and distinct awards.
