Bulacan launches activities for Environment Month 2019

CITY OF MALOLOS – The Provincial Government of Bulacan headed by Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and Vice Gov. Daniel R. Fernando launched the activities for the Environment Month celebration this June during the Monday Flag Raising Ceremony at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in this city.

Bulacan Environment and Natural Resources Office Head Elizabeth Apresto shared the lined up activities for the Environment Month which includes Opening and Oath-Taking of Bulacan Provincial Police Office Kaligtasan at Kalikasan Volunteer Program on June 13, 2019 and Orientation to Building with Nature for Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Officers on June 20-21 2019 in partnership with WETLANDS International, both will be held at The Pavilion in Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center.

Apresto also invited everyone to participate in the Arbor Day 2019 on June 25, 2019, 6 am at Doña Remedios Trinidad wherein approximately 1,000 trees are expected to be planted, as well as the monthlong clean up activities in rivers, esteros and canals all over the province.

During the launching of Environment Month this morning, Arch. Noel K. Vitug, a speaker from Eco- Asia Research Institute, discussed the importance of having a clean, green and healthy environment and how people can do their share in protecting the environment by simply managing their garbage properly.

“The circle of love is what life is all about. When you throw a candy wrapper or paper inside your school campus or mix a plastic bag with potato peelings, you are putting them in the wrong place and keeping them out of the circle, but when you put them in the proper container you are helping them return to the circle,” Vitug said.

He also underscored who is in charge on everything and said, “science and technology have brought us so much material progress in such an easy lifestyle that we sometimes forget that we are not in charge of the universe. Everything is God’s gift to us all, an expression of His love, to share with others, and to return it to him. Let us unite for the clean and green environment, discipline is the solution to our waste”.
