Vote For The Coconet

Forwarded by Prem Rara at the Gmail Philippines Group:

Did you know that the Philippines’ coconut geotextile ( a.k.a. coconet) for soil erosion control has been chosen as one of the 12 finalists in Newsweek and BBC’s (British Broadcasting Corporation) World’s World Challenge?

The World Challenge is basically a competition/search designed at identifying groups or individuals all over the world whose projects have contributed great impact at grass roots level. A documentary about Philippine Coconut geotextile or coconet industry will be shown on the BBC World cable channel on September 24 around 8:30 GMT and will also be featured in the August 29 special issue of Newsweek. “The World Challenge” already offers a tremendous exposure and publicity to our flourishing Philippine coconut geotextile industry and to our Philippine coconut fiber exporters. But it would be great liberation for our country, which has been getting very bad publicity nowadays, to win this prestigious competition.

To vote, please open www.theworldchallenge.co.uk and click the picture of Philippine coconet. Please help us campaign for more voters by forwarding this message to your co-worker, friends and relatives.

Thanks!

  3. Hi! The best tlga ang mga Pinoy… Kung bibigyan lang sana ng pansin ng Gobyerno…mayaman na sana ang Pilipinas ngayon… Likas na yaman plus likas na talento… Kahirapan ba? HINDI!

    Pagyamanin ang talentong ibinigay ng Panginoon sa mga Filipino… Huwag sayangin ng dahilan lamang sa pagkagahaman at kasakiman sa pera ng iba (lalo na ung may mga kapangyarihan at katanyagan)… Kailangan silang puksain!

    Mabuhay! At sana patulo’y parin na magpursigi ang mga bagong bayaning imbentor…
