Xentro Mall in Antipolo Bags Golden Kubeta Award 2018

Did you know that there's an award-giving body that recognizes the cleanest and most awesome rest rooms in our country? 

Spearheaded by Maynilad,  the Golden Kubeta Awards is an awareness and education campaign that seeks to bring the conversation about proper wastewater management to the mainstream. It also envisions clean and comfortable public restrooms in establishments, regardless of type and industry, all over the country.

Through the Golden Kubeta Awards, Maynilad aims to spread awareness about the importance of clean toilets to a person’s health and hygiene. But beyond personal hygiene and health, we want this campaign to be a jump-off point to educate the public about the need for proper wastewater management – about how managing liquid wastes in the right way can also lead to better health for all and to a better environment for future generations.- Ramoncito S. Fernandez, Maynilad President and CEO.

The organizers received 400 nominations and these were narrowed down based on the current state of their comfort rooms, as well as interviews with the establishments to answer the question why they believe they should be among the Golden Kubeta awardees for this year.

Here's the criteria for nomination and judging:

Functionality – e.g. basic features such as working flush and faucet
Aesthetics – look of the comfort rooms
Overall comfort – e.g. space, ventilation, accessibility, etc.
Amenities – e.g. soap, hand dryer, toilet paper, bidet, etc.

The following made it to Top 14 finalists:

GSIS, Roxas Blvd., Pasay City
House of Representatives, Constitution Hills, QC
Human Heart Nature, Commonwealth Ave., QC
Coffee Project, SJDM, Bulacan
Coffee Project, Antipolo
Coffee Project, Balanga, Bataan

Winners were determined via the Kubeta PH community Facebook page poll held last Nov. 15-17. The top 3 winners were as follows:

3rd Place: Troi Oi Vietnmese restaurant in Iloilo City

2nd Place: Government Service Insurance System building in Pasay City

The awards ceremony was held last November 19 at Ang Bahay ng Alumni, University of the Philippines Diliman, coinciding with the celebration of World Toilet Day.

World Toilet Day aims to emphasize the need for safe toilets for all by 2030 – one of the objectives stated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal No. 6: Sanitation and Water.

The Golden Kubeta Awards is part of Maynilad’s bigger Kubeta PH campaign, which aims to promote the importance of proper wastewater management.
