    Description

    Located in Antipolo City, Philippines. Located on the far north east side of the Mega Manila area. We build the machines, do beach cleanups, and promote DIY plastic recycling. We also have a mad scientist lab where we design and build plastic recycling equipment.

    Accommodation is available in our home. Private bedroom Gated community, with amenities. Pool, tennis court, parks. Modern Malls are near by.

    Night life in our part of town is mostly small places. No real club scene unless you go to Makati.

    Being where we are, you can get by public transport downtown relatively cheaply or travel the opposite direction and spend time in the Sierra Madre national park.

    Not much for beach in the area, although beach cleanups are in the works on other islands.

    Food is combo of Western and Asian. You will eat well.

    Looking for people who know how to fabricate stuff, welders, engineers, etc. Also community organizers who want to spread the Plastic Recycling message.

    Weather here is around 25c average October to April, then hot season. The Mad scientist lab is air conditioned. Expect to get dirty, Shorts, tee shirt and sandals is the uniform of the day. Do not worry, we have a washing machine and hot water showers.

    English language is spoken most everywhere here.
