MORE Power Clean Up Drive: More Electric and Power Corporation (MORE Power Iloilo) volunteers, 65 employees in total, recently took part in a coastal and city forest clean-up along Brgy. Boulevard, Molo. It may be recalled that the group, called MORE Power Guardians of the Environment, has participated in many green initiatives over the years and even continue to spearhead activities for the environment and the community.
“We would like to continue our commitment in serving our people in Iloilo not only being the distribution utility here but also sa mga ganitong klase ng project ng Iloilo City yung paglilinis ng environment. Maraming salamat po na nabigyan kami ng opportunity to be of help,” says Ma. Cristina D. Cabalhin, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Affairs of MORE Power.
MORE Power clean up drive: The Iloilo City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) led the program as part of National Environmental Awareness month this November.
Environmental Management Specialist Engr. Danilo Dinson of the CENRO thanked MORE Power for their spirit of volunteerism, even if coastal clean-up is far from their mandate as a distribution utility. Volunteers were able to gather 59 sacks of trash which mainly included various types of plastic, old shoes, and plastic bottles.
“Daku gid katama una, awareness gid sang mga tawo nga taga diri nga Makita nila nga nagapaninlo kita kag mabulig man sila kag indi maghaboy sang basura sa shoreline,” says Engr. Dinson, Environmental Management Specialist III of CENRO.
The activity aims to raise awareness among Ilonggos on being responsible trash owners.
