DENR urges public, LGUs, NGOs to join coastal cleanup drive

Dipolog City (16 September) -- In keeping with the observance of September as the national cleanup month, the provincial office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has called on the public, the local government units (LGUs), non-government organizations (NGOs) and other stakeholders to actively participate in cleaning the coastlines, rivers, lakes, streams and other waterways in their respective places.

Almario Kaabay Jr., public affairs officer of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) told the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) here that the national coastal cleanup day was set on Sept. 25 in consonance with Proclamation No. 470 dated Sept. 15, 2003 declaring every third Saturday of September of each year as the national coastal cleanup day.

This year's observance is guided by the theme, "Trash Travels ? From our Hands to the Sea, Around the Globe, and through Time."

The national coastal cleanup seeks to remove trash and other objects from the ocean's coastlines and waterways. "Since everything is connected to the sea the cleanup can also take place along lakes, rivers and streams," said Kaabay.

In some beaches especially in the urban areas, plastic bags, cigarette filters, bottles, diapers and other wastes scatter and pose danger to marine and human lives.

It can be recalled that the national cleanup month is celebrated every September of each year by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 244 with the DENR as the lead agency. (PIA-ZN) [top]
