        For the founders of Siklo Pilipinas, necessity is indeed the mother of invention.

        Clarice and Lyndon Ecuacion were looking for something to protect their gadgets while island hopping, back when dry bags werent a thing. Thats when Lyndon thought of making bags using a tire’s inner tube, which is a water-resistant rubber material. Since its establishment in 2012, Siklo Pilipinas has upcycled over 26 tons of discarded inner tubes as an advocate of eco-ethical lifestyle.

        Clarice said: “My husband thought of it as a really good way to look for a solution to our waste problem. We love the environment, we love the nature. Hindi malayo sa passion namin, so that way, mas na-strengthen yung [belief] na we can make this work, because this is not about monetary gain.

        This is about our passion, this is how we live, this is our lifestyle. For those who understand Siklo, they know the environmental implications we have because we are finding solutions to address the waste problem.”
