Cebu goes Green

Former San Francisco Mayor and current Vice-Mayor Alfredo Arquillano Jr.launched its 'Two Million Trees in Five Years' in support with the observance of International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction. The program is an outcome of the Southeast Asia Regional Consultation Workshop on Strengthening Climate Resilience which he participated in Bankok Thailand.

This is a very interesting project because for me taking care of the environment should now be a top priority to every people. Projects like this can be implemented well with the support of both Local and National leaders. As a Cebuano and as someone who hails from the island of Camotes, I think this is adds pride to the rest of us and more than anything else I think this requires our support.

Speaking of becoming environmental, I will now become an advocate of refraining from the use of Plastic Bags and encourage the use of Environmental Friendly Bags or also known as Green Bags. In our own little way we can surely make not just our own home city a better place but the entire world as well!!!
