Waste-free store opens in Bacolod
BY MARK L. GARCIA
Negrenses can now sip a cup of coffee without producing any trash in a store with a name that literally means “no wastage”.
A group of environmentalists in Negros Occidental established the first waste-free store, called “Wala Usik”, as part of their advocacy to create a model for a sustainable and environment-friendly social enterprise.
Wala Usik is a first of its kind in Negros Island, and located at Lacson Street in Brgy. Mandalagan.
