In line with its Dagat Ko, Linis Ko program, Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) joined hands with its technical partners to lead the cleaning of the coastal area along Lamon Bay last April 13.
Eighty volunteers from A1E, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd., Dinamico Construction Inc., Delta Earthmoving, Inc., Beton Bau Phils., Inc., Jacob Project Philippines, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Atimonan Municipal Environment and Natural Resources (MENRO), and residents of Brgy. Caridad Ilaya took part in the cleanup in Barangay Caridad Ilaya.
The cleanup drive was done in anticipation of the influx of visitors in the Lenten season. Many locals and tourists visit the area to swim because of its crystal-clear water.
A total of 411 kilos or 42 sacks of residual waste such as clothes, cans, plastic bottles and cups, grocery bags, cigarette butts, ropes, and styrofoam were collected and disposed at the municipal sanitary landfill located in Barangay Inaclagan. Around ten tons of biodegradable waste such as coconut husk, bamboo pole and stick, sea grass, and woods were buried at the upper part of the beach.
Another partner of A1E, the Rotary Club of Quezon City led by Mr. Mike Enrique, donated sacks for the cleanup
Dinamico Administrative Manager Jinnam Kin said the cleanup drive is the best way to encourage their employees to protect the environment. Learning by doing is one principle we believe in, he added.
“Beyond doing a cleanup, we want to instill environmental awareness and stewardship among our partners and the Atimonanins. We understand that working together is essential in protecting our environment,” said Cynthia Pardo, A1E External Affairs Manager.
Dagat Ko, Linis Ko is one of A1E’s programs that promotes environmental stewardship and enjoins the different members of the community to take care of Mother Nature.
