MUNI Meetup: Zero Waste Ways at Home and in Travel on Sept. 30 at Batala Bar

As a result of MUNI Community interest in Zero Waste Living, coming from our first meetup on the topic at the MUNI Market last April, to our second one last July, and the desire to discover more practical, actionable ways to live with less waste…we bring you this upcoming meetup!

IMG_0340Batala Bar is located at 830 Arnaiz Avenue in Makati. It’s kind of like a speak-easy with its incognito sign and secret doors, but it’s located at same building as Hineleban Café and a bike and surf shop.

Parking may be limited, but it’s also an easy walk from Glorietta or Greenbelt.

Just look for the Batala Bar / Philippine Artisan Trade symbol (as in the photo on the right), and go through the door right underneath it! Or enter via the “secret” door through the bike shop. 🙂
