The Sangguniang Kabataan of Poblacion 08 headed by Hon. Renz Macion, initiated a barangay-wide clean-up drive today in solidarity with the International Coastal Clean-up Day to prevent plastic pollution from reaching our oceans.

As a reward for their participation, we gave them rice which the amount is equivalent to the weight of the plastic waste they have collected during the said clean-up.

Furthermore, to reflect and raise awareness on marine debris and zero-waste lifestyle, we have invited Mr. Javan Lev Poblador of the Association of Young Environmental Journalists to impart his knowledge and expertise on these key issues.

Nevertheless, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the following donors:

Councilor LANI RAMON
Councilor Bernice Aseñas Elmaco
Dumaguete Zenith Commercial
Dumaguete Partosa Commercial
Chuy Te Ordoñez Store
Alano and Sons Credit Corp.
Ong Dental Clinic

We would also like to acknowledge the support of our ever dynamic Punong Barangay Maelyne Rose Mariano and council members. Daghan kaayong salamat!
