As a way of recovering and reusing waste products—from household use, manufacturing, agriculture, and business—and thereby reducing their burden on the environment, ICC Zambales held a contest at Olongapo City National High School (OCNHS) on August 31, 2016, in cooperation with the Department of Education, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, The Lighthouse Marina Resort Legacy Foundation (LMRLF), and ICC Olongapo spearheaded by the Public Affairs Office of Olongapo City LGU. Students from different public and private secondary schools in Olongapo City showcased their talents by re-creating an innovative work of art through recycled wastes. This goes in line with International Coastal Clean-up’s goal in solving the trash problem and creating solutions for a healthier marine ecosystem.
It was eye-opening to know that even the youth sees the error in our ways and wants to see a better tomorrow; “Maraming nakasalalay na buhay sa malinis na kapaligiran”, one of the candidates stated. Realizing that their future lies in what we do today; the lives of these children should serve as an inspiration to strive for a clean and healthy environment for generations to come.
Dedicated in creating a wave of change to help preserve our environment
