(http://www.dseawards.com/). EcoWEB’s social enterprise included the EcoHerbs and Ecorganic (http://www.ecoweb.ph/index.php/products). These two SE’s involve marginal women farmers who cultivated the herbs and small coconut farmers who produce the virgin coconut oil now named as EcoHerbs product. The latter is marketed by self-employed vendors and advertised through traditional or old marketing strategy – word of mouth – and the most modern method – the internet.
The Ecorganic is produced by EcoWEB and its partner – a cooperative of former NPA guerrillas who chose to continue fighting poverty through economic means. Ecorganic products were also used by farmers affected by Typhoon Sendong in Iligan and now being tried in the farms of Typhoon Yolanda-affected communities in Samar and Leyte.
PwC discovered EcoWEB’s SE through word of mouth. PwC staff visited, documented and appraised EcoWEBs’ production sites and partner communities before EcoWEB become a nominee.
