Introducing the “Salbabote”
One Meralco Foundation and Meralco, along with its partners Pepsi and Glad, recently launched an improvised flotation device called “Salba Bote” to help families along flood prone areas prepare for the coming of the typhoon season. The device is made of empty 1-liter Pepsi bottles enclosed in a strong rubber mesh bag which may be worn like a typical life vest. A Salba Bote unit may also be attached to other units to form a raft or to a sturdy post or tree to prevent the user from being carried away by raging flood waters.
