Every piece of trash to be recycled or deposited in a landfill equates to one less dangerous item for birds, turtles or whales to swallow. There is compelling evidence that cleanup campaigns do make a difference and not just in the short term. It serves to educate on how much trash is produced daily inspiring volunteers to reduce their reliance on single-use plastics, and crucially, to spread the word to others.
Everyone believes keeping the environment clean, is a shared responsibility. This is why, a private-public collaboration with 1000 volunteers is conducting an anti-litter campaign with the theme “Malinis na Pamayanan, Masiglang Kinabukasan”on July 20, 2019, 6AM-9AM in Bayani Road, Lawton Avenue, Taguig City.
