Project Re-Dew: Scrapboards is a design initiative that upcycles used Mountain Dew PET plastic bottles into a resin which bindsscrap wood from the wreckage left behind by the typhoon to create Scrapboards—symbols of Siargao’s-resilience and hope. The first Scrapboards debuted as trophies for the first local surfing competition since the island reopened for tourism.

On the upcoming anniversary of super typhoon Odette, an additional five Scrapboardswere crafted in the shape of full-size surfboards, with each one inspired by an iconic location in Siargao.

To showcase and turnover all the design pieces, a gallery event was held on December 9 at the Astbury, Makati to display all the items that have been produced from the project. The gallery also featured the photographs of Pilar Bonnin, a photographer based in Manila and Siargao, and featured the film “New Religion – A Life of Ocean” of filmmaker, Gaps Sabuero.

“Mountain Dew is honoredto have worked with ReMaker Space and Rise Siargao for this project.This initiative has allowed us to meaningfully contribute to the recovery of a nature paradise and one of our country’s most popular adventure playgrounds, while staying true to our brand promise of fuelling crew adventures.” saysGutzee Segura, PepsiCo’sCSD Marketing Lead in the Philippines.

“We really appreciated the concept of these Re-DewScrapboards because they are made from upcycled materials like plastic bottles and scrap wood that would be otherwise left to waste. It intermarries the idea of hope and sustainability for coastline communities like Siargao.” says JhetDischer, Project Manager from ReMaker Space.

“The creatives were inspired by the beauty and spirit of Siargao. We wanted to use design to honor the surfing community’s story of recovery. We’re grateful for the opportunity to have worked with our partners at Mountain Dew, who share the same passion for supporting all kinds of adventure and creativity for good.”  says Nikki Sunga, Creative Director at BBDO Guerrero.

The Scrapboards, fins, and other surf-inspired pieces were handed over toRise Siargao – an NGO that helps rebuild homes for victims of super typhoon Odette, and ReMaker Space— a facility that uses upcycling machines on recovered plastic wastes for sustainable solutions.
