MANILA, Philippines – Every year, millions around the world celebrate Earth Day! Held each year on April 22nd, Earth Day is a chance for Filipinos to come together with their friends and families to support environmental protection, while enjoying all the wonders of the natural world. This April, we invite you to celebrate the Earth by reducing your dependency on plastic.
Plastic Waste: A Growing Concern
According to a 2015 report by Ocean Conservancy and the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment, the Philippines was the third biggest contributor of unmanaged plastic in the ocean. The report went on to find that on average, Filipinos release 2.7 million metric tons of plastic waste into the ocean every year, with 560,000 metric tons of plastic waste coming from Metro Manila alone.
While experts estimate that it would cost billions to reduce the amount of plastic waste and leakage in our oceans, many steps can be done in our own home by making the conscious effort to switch to sustainable and environmentally-friendly products.
