Volunteers from a company collected 1,421 kilograms of garbage, including plastic and rubber items, from Las Piñas – Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA).
LPPCHEA is a 175-hectare wetland park and a protected area with mangroves, ponds and lagoons, mudflats, salt marshes and mixed beach forests. It is located at the coastline of Las Piñas and Parañaque cities. It provides habitat for many migratory bird species, including the egrets.

More than 150 employees of AllHome Corporation from different parts of the country participated in the clean-up activity as part of the company’s aim to address “relevant social and environmental issues” and reduce “the carbon footprint not just of its stores, but the communities it operates in.”

“This is just the first activity that we have,” said Mary Lee Sadiosa, AllHome chief operating officer. “We have various activities that are lined up, including those that will address the needs of other sectors.”

The 155 sacks of trash collected around 300-meter beach forest of LPPCHEA’s Freedom Island included 69 sacks of plastic, 22 sacks of rubber, 19 sacks of styrofoam, 9 sacks of glass, 21 sacks of plastic bottles and 15 sacks of other forms of garbage.

Joey Petras, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) farmworker, said that most of the trash collected had drifted from Parañaque and Las Piñas rivers, and from the waters of Cavite and Bataan provinces.

He said that the plastic bottles will be recycled under Senator Cynthia Villar’s program. Most of them will be formed into recycled chairs, he said.

Most of the other forms of garbage will be stored for other purposes.

The recent clean-up drive is AllHome’s first intensified pro-environment activity under its ‘AllHome Builds’ initiative.
