Olongapo City, Zambales — This city played host yesterday to the Material Recovery Program’s (MRP’s) Recyclable Regatta 2016 at the Driftwood Beach Resort with the aim of raising awareness on plastic pollution of the sea.
Led by Mayor Rolen Paulino of this city, the event featured several boats made of recyclable materials as created by the different barangays and schools in the city
“We want to instill in the residents’ consciousness that throwing garbage especially in the sea have adverse effects to the environment,” Paulino said.
Education is key to solving our trash problem. The ICC Olongapo group led by Anthony Bayarond, Making Rebirth Possible 2.0 Project Manager, has been going around schools to inform the students of the threat we are facing if we don't change our ways. This project is supported by the Lighthouse Marina Resort Legacy Foundation and the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).
Reef Check Philippines partnered with AirAsia and ICCPH in cleaning up the community reef of Sitio Reyna in Lian, Batangas last September 2, 2016. Last year Air Asia launched a regional campaign called Green24 where all AirAsia offices and our passengers are encouraged to join the green movement. Air Asia is our official airline partner for the upcoming Environmental Summit in Subic Bay on September 30.
