Contest: Design a logo for Detox Pilipinas

Feature story - July 14, 2015
Greenpeace Philippines is looking for a striking logo that will symbolize our work on pollution monitoring and reporting to help keep our rivers and waterways clean and toxic-free.

Aptly called Detox Pilipinas, the logo will be used in a Greenpeace sub-website and will feature maps and useful information about chemical spills, leak and incidents, industrial waste pollution, as well as the various chemical pollution exposés and reports researched by Greenpeace and other citizen journalists nationwide on the look out for industrial pollution and chemical-related incidents. 

More importantly, the site will also showcase good news and inspiring stories – of empowered communities that have successfully mounted efforts to ensure the protection of our bodies of water. 

The winning logo will be featured on the Greenpeace website, in our newsletters and in all collaterals that will be produced for Detox Pilipinas.
