Recently, over 70 employees from Shopee joined the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) – NCR in planting mangrove trees at Tanza Marine Tree Park, Isla Pulo, Navotas City.
The Tanza Marine Tree Park is one of the mangrove enrichment sites maintained by the DENR-NCR. Justin Albert De Ramos, Coastal Resource and Foreshore Management Section Chief said, “On behalf of the DENR-NCR, we would like to thank Shopee for supporting our cause and actively volunteering here at Tanza Marine Tree Park. We look forward to more initiatives and collaborations like this in the future.”
Karen Perez, Head of People at Shopee Philippines, said, “At Shopee, we are always looking for meaningful opportunities to connect our employees with causes they care deeply about.
Through this initiative, we were able to play our part in preserving our natural environment with the help of Shopee volunteers. We’re thankful for their efforts, and we look forward to serving more causes within our community.”
This initiative is part of Shopee Bayanihan, the company’s umbrella CSR program that seeks to harness the power of technology to help communities benefit from digital transformation, wherever they are in the Philippines.
