Out of Topic: Coconets

This is the first of my out of topic (not Baler or Aurora related) posts here at BB. I will be regularly posting interesting sites and info that I regularly encounter in this great information ukay-ukay called the internet. Enjoy!

I received this on my email from a guy named Sherwin from Coco Tech:

"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

Please help us campaign for more voters by forwarding this message to your co-worker, friends and relatives.
