BAYANI HOCKEY IN ACTION

Play Video

Hockey in the Philippines?! Everywhere we go, kids love to play, girls as much as
boys. And anywhere we go, we can: there are concrete public basketball courts
across the country. We started at the Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm in Bulacan.

hUMANITY'S GREATEST THREAT?

The overwhelming majority of people we encounter, young or not,
don’t see plastic pollution as either a health or environmental threat.

We’ve learned educating children is the key. When they learn, they care.
A new, fun sport, Bayani Hockey is an ideal platform for crucial dialogue.

We’re developing a series of short videos called Connect the Dots
to help people understand the many grave dangers of toxic chemicals.

Plastic pollution in Asia is the worst in the world & growing really fast. It threatens everybody everywhere no matter where you live, poisoning the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. The biggest challenge is raising awareness. We’re focusing on educating children.
A lot of Asia’s trash winds up burned in open fires,
releasing incapacitating & cancer-causing chemicals.
Air pollution & plastic fumes from Asia can reach
North America in as little as four days, Japan one.
Much also winds up in the ocean.

And eaten across the world.

It releases & sponges thousands of toxins,
creating entirely new compounds as they do,
even endangering microscopic organisms that provide
half the oxygen upon which all life on Earth depends.

When kids here learn the dangers, they want to help. Right away.

INTRODUCING:

Let’s be honest: change is hard. Not everyone will bike to work,
go vegan, wear hemp, be zero waste or even sail instead of fly.

But there are many ways you can make a meaningful difference,
whatever your age, wherever you live, however busy you may be.

Introducing Bayani Offsets, a multi-dimensional impact program. We offer a rich variety of low-cost, exciting options. For example:
You can start a school or community street hockey program with as few as a dozen
sticks, all made of mixed soft plastic waste that has less than a 1% recycling rate.
In the process, offset your plastic use and overall carbon and chemical footprints.

YOUNG, OLD, IN-BETWEEN -- EVERYONE CAN HELP
