Public Service: Salba-Bote

I came across the Salba-Bote when I was browsing the newspaper the other day. 

The Salba-Bote is an improvised flotation device.  It is made of 4 empty PET bottles placed inside a mesh bag which a person could wear to help him float.  These salba-botes can also be connected together to form a raft.  It also has a waterproof pocket which can hold emergency supplies like flashlights, mobile phones, etc.

The first batch of Salba-Bote was distributed by the One Meralco Foundation to the local residents of Marikina who live in the most flood prone areas.

Here is an article I read which is really good news!

Kudos to Meralco, One Meralco Foundation, DDB Philippines, Pepsi and Glad for forming this partnership.  This will surely help a lot of our kababayans!

I wonder how we could get this for ourselves.  You’ll never know when you’ll need it!
