Hundreds of locators, residents, students and workers in the Freeport joined officials and employees of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) in cleaning up their respective office premises in commemoration of Earth Day.
This year’s Earth Day theme is “Earth day everyday, everywhere.” In a memorandum issued by SBMA Ecology Center Manager Amethya Koval, all SBMA departments and offices have been called on to conduct a general cleanup within and around their respective premises on April 20, 2012.
“Together we will mobilize our people on this important day for a very important undertaking”, Koval added, as she enjoined SBMA officials and employees “to make this a very memorable event by encouraging everyone in our department/office to participate and document all activities with photos and videos.”
According to Koval, concerned locators, residents and employees have taken part in the Earth Day initiative “to clean and save our planet for future generations”.
Earth Day is an annual worldwide event, which is held every April 22 and supported by more than a billion people to voice their appreciation of planet Earth, as well as their concern for its continuing protection.
