Teacher Herdy asked Eugene if I wanted to join his MMSU Batac students for a National Service Training Program Civil Welfare Training Service (NSTP CWTS) cleanup activity in Davila, Pasuquin. I wasn’t able to go the first time, but last Saturday, I made sure I would be one of the volunteers. I’m happy that there are more people who are taking notice of the importance of our mangrove ecosystems. We need to take good care of these natural structures for sustainable coastal and marine resources and protection against typhoons and soil erosion. Let us not choke up our mangroves with plastics and other pollutants, neither cut off the mangrove trees.
Si Manong naman. Nagmukha akong Senadora with verbal diarrhea after seeing the minibus driver empty the back luggage compartment of the garbage bags full of plastic trash the kids initially loaded. And where? Naku po! At the end of the narrow road leading to the highway. Pina-load ko nga uli.
