BRM moves to bring back pine scent of a clean Baguio

Baguio City (15 February) -- In celebration of this year's Environment Day on June 5, the Baguio Regreening Movement (BRM) carries the battle cry, Co.˛: Kick the Habit: " Bring back the Pine Scent of a Clean Baguio".

In a meeting last week, the group has identified series of activities starting next month to mark the occasion. A clean up drive along main thoroughfares would be conducted right after the on-going Flower Festival. This will be followed by a "Pulot Walk" or the Walk for a Clean and Green Baguio which is scheduled in the latter part of March and onwards.

Other activities lined up include search for the cleanest and greenest barangay, a water forum for a clean Sagudin- Balili river, forum with city officials, photo exhibits that will showcase BRM's best practices, documentary film presentations, tree planting and the like.

The group also planned to invite the pioneers of the BRM that include then DENR's Regional Executive Director Horacio Ramos and Bishop Ernesto Salgado during the launching program of the lined up activities.

Meanwhile, alarmed with the worsening garbage problem in the city, the group decided to form a lobby group who will present the real situation of garbage disposal in the city. This way, they hope to get the commitment of the local officials on this matter.

The group is also pushing for the strict enforcement of city ordinances regarding litter bugs. "Penalties should be imposed" one member said, citing other Asian countries who follows their street ordinances to maintain tidy environment. (fnm/PIA-CAR) [top]
