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.
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.
The activity is part of Samsung’s three-year partnership with World Wildlife Fund for Nature - Philippines on Coastal Rehabilitation. Conducted in celebration of Earth Day, it aims to revive the country’s coastlines, which is a key step in preserving and protecting the environment. More than 1,110 mangrove seedlings were planted during the activity, and more than 1,000 pieces of garbage collected from the coastlines.
