Tibayanihan Upcycling Project is an effort spearheaded by BEAR BRAND in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) that aims to help address the need of chairs in public schools through upcycling empty BEAR BRAND packs. Through this initiative, we not only help improve schooling conditions in the country, but also positively impact the environment.

According to Department of Education, public schools are short of 9 million chairs. In effect, students are not able to maximize their learning given the classroom conditions. This is why your help is needed in funding Tibay chairs to provide students the best environment conducive to learning.


Using collected empty BEAR BRAND packs from schools, it will go through the process of upcycling that converts empty packs into school desks and chairs, coined as Tibay Chairs, that we will donate to schools in need. With your contributions in helping subsidize the cost of upcycling empty packs to Tibay Chairs, more and more schools will be endowed with chairs to provide better schooling conditions to public school students.

Long-Term Impact

With the overall vision to improve school condition in the Philippines, this effort will not be limited to upcycling used packs into chairs but also to improving other aspects in the long run to help make the school environment more conducive to learning. With sustained efforts, BEAR BRAND hopes to ignite communities to help each other in improving school conditions so that may leave a positive impact to the quality of education, paving the way for a better future.
