PLANTITOS and plantitas received plants, seeds, and organic compost in exchange for their plastic bottles in a plant exchange held at Robinsons Magnolia last month. Robinson Malls has partnered with the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) to help and save Mother Earth through a series of exchanges where a bit of trash gets the giver a plant. During the exchange held at Robinsons Magnolia, mall visitors were invited to bring at least three 1.5-liter bottles or one 5-liter bottle to exchange for free seedlings, seeds, and organic compost. The BPI will use the collected bottles as pots for plants they grow for their community partners. The bottles-for-plants exchange will be held at Robinsons Magnolia again in the near future, and also at Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Place Metro East, Robinsons Town Mall Malabon, and Robinsons Place Antipolo.
