This is no junk toy story

Here's an interesting recycling thing I found on the web which is even children can do. It's a nice way to teach children about recycling. And best these are considered toys for children and I bet even adults can do this and both can make some money from it.

Calling Marikina City.

I found it here.

And thanks to site, where I got the link.

"These funny clowns are made at the spectacular Foz do Iguacu (Iguasu Falls), which sits at the point where Brazil meets Argentina and Paraguay. Here, there are always beautiful, lush green plants growing everywhere, so no wonder the kids there have incorporated grass into their toys!. Meet the Grass Head Clown, which is often decorated with the colors of rainbow, the same colors created from the mist of Iguassu Falls which falls along 350-foot cliffs of river".

"The child who made this particular toy used all recycled materials: a pair of her mother's old stockings, a piece of scrap ribbon, sawdust she found lying around her father's wood shop, and a small handful of grass seeds. As a result of assembling all this 'junk' together she has a toy that's fun for any boy or girl to make and play with...especially if they like to cut hair! These toys have become so popular in Iguassu Falls that some of the children make them and sell them to tourists who come to see their town. So they are not only toys, but they are also a way for the children to make a little money of their own".

I think if ever we'll have something like these in Marikina, we will design them to look like our beloved MMDA Administrator BF and Mayor MCF. Oooohh, that sounds like a cool idea.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
