Tomorrow, Aprill 22, is Earth Day, and Unbound sponsored friends and their families in the Philippines are celebrating with bokashi balls.
No, it isn’t a new healthy cereal to help cleanse your system. But it will help cleanse rivers and other freshwater resources.
“Bokashi” is a Japanese term that means “fermented organic matter” and refers to a system developed in Japan that uses beneficial micro-organisms to break down toxins and food waste. Bokashi balls can improve the life of the river and help restore it to its proper ecological balance.
Unbound’s Antipolo project in the Philippines has been making bokashi balls since 2009 and started to see positive environmental effects in area rivers where the mudballs have been utilized..

Watching out for the health of our aging friends is extremely important to all of us here at Unbound.

Facilitators of the program in the Payatas community are not only monitoring blood pressure, but they are also teaching the elderly how to care for themselves.
