MORE Power’s security team and customer care department personnel spent a productive weekend along the coastal area of Arevalo not taking a plunge in the water but pick-up the trash scattered on the shores in line with the International Coastal Clean-up Day.
According to Security Head Rudin Tunding, it was MORE Power’s President and CEO, Mr. Roel Castro, who encouraged them to play an active role in cleaning the environment to serve as an example for the younger generation and the residents along the coastlines.
The group dubbed the MORE Power Guardians of the Environment has been serving the community even beyond their normal duties in the power distribution facility. “Since from the start ito na yung ginagawa namin.
To join any community service with regards to or in connection with the environment,” says Tunding.
Aside from the coastal area, they also took part in the massive clean-up in the mangrove area along Esplanades 3 and 4 in the City Proper. “Sana lahat maging responsible kasi yung pagmamahal natin sa environment is everybody’s concern,” says Tunding.
International Coastal Clean-up Philippines Coordinator Ian Varona praised how MORE Power highlighted the spirit of volunteerism among its employees especially when it comes to advocacies for the environment.
“Very significant, the bigger the trash we can do mas maayo nga tool ina para mabal-an ta ang ano klase ordinances, regulations para sa local government para ma address ang root cause of the problem. Ga pasalamat gid kami sa MORE Power sa ila sustainability program. Actually every month, gapadala gid sila volunteers diri sa amon,” says Varona.
