Working together with our adopted community in Purok Uno in Bgy. Magosilom, the eco-scouts regularly pick up and collect large amounts of garbage along the beach in Balwarte. On average, they collect about 5 sacks of mostly rubbish items such as plastic bottles and sachets, snack packets (potato chip packs and such), plastic bags, glass bottles, and disposable diapers. The amount of trash the students have collected so far should come as a solid wake-up call to the local government.
It is our hope that we can help increase the awareness of the local communities of the values of proper trash disposal and recycling. If we all do our bit when it comes to managing our own household waste and making sure that we understand the impact of our activities on the environment, Cantilan would surely be a cleaner town.
