Making MABUHAY BALLS as a project to revive rivers

There are many major environmental problems in the Philippines and one of them is water pollution. The Philippines is an archipelago, a country made up of islands in close proximity. This means there are alot of bodies of water in the country. There are 421 rivers in the country to be exact. 50 of which are biologically dead, meaning they can no longer contain any oxygen and support living things.
Water is life. But when water cannot sustain life, how will we survive?
We, as students, wish to help revive the rivers in the Philippines, with the creation and usage of MABUHAY BALLS. Mabuhay Balls is a Filipino take on the Japanese Bokashi Balls, balls of fermented organic matter and effective micro-organisms that help break down toxins and food waste. These will later on become food for fishes and shells, making the river clean and livable again. These balls will be able to clean polluted water when dropped into it every 6 months.
We appeal for the public to learn how to make Mabuhay balls and to help revive the rivers. We believe that the best way to start this movement is by educating the youth and by promoting this program in schools as a environmental service project, and to drop them into rivers (or any body of water) near them. A group of grade 12 students have done this in our school, teaching the creation of Mabuhay Balls to the grade 10 as a project for their science class and then dropping off the finished Mabuhay Balls every 6 months in the creek near our school.
We sincerely hope that people will learn to make these Mabuhay Balls so that each one of us can contribute in reviving the rivers. Please sign this petition to show your support to our cause. Thank you!
