Different environmental organizations and individuals teamed up with Bantay Kalikasan on its first ever 6-day Eco Travel Fair recently held at Araneta Gateway Mall.

Edna Daylin, 64, one of the participants, said that she appreciates Bantay Kalikasan’s efforts on environmental awareness. “Kapag nag-grocery ako o namamalengke, nagdadala ako ng eco bag [Every time I go to grocery or market, I bring eco bag.]”, she gladly shared when asked about her contribution in saving the environment.

Ryan Anthony Bestre, Youth Campaigner from Greenpeace, likewise  shared  his environmental advocacies. He reiterated that Filipinos should break free from plastic given that the Philippines is the third largest contributor to ocean plastic.
