In keeping with its commitment to be a good corporate citizen, employees and officers of Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO) took part in cleaning up the coast of Barangay Papaya in Nasugbu Batangas. 

Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation volunteers plant more than 1,100 mangrove seedlings in a bid to revive the country’s coastlines.
The coastal cleanup activity was a company-wide volunteer activity led by SEPCO president Kevin Lee, who joined 80 volunteers in collecting garbage from the coastline and planting mangrove seedlings.  

To ensure that these efforts are sustained by the community members, SEPCO volunteers conducted an environment education session with more than 50 children from the barangay in attendance.
