"The International community created the theme 'Beat Plastic Pollution', in celebration of the World Environment Day. We took inspiration in that and added "through me" because we are all involved in this [struggle for ecological integrity]," said the Regional Secretary.

"A micro effort when added up together creates a visible impact," he added.

Furthermore, the department head invites everyone to support programs seeking for environmental care.

"We must, at all times, show care for our environment. After all, it is our only home," Kedtag exclaimed.

The Philippine Environment Month is celebrated every month of June. Aside from coastal clean-up, the ENR department also conducted tree planting activity in Barangay Tenorio in D.O.S, Maguindanao on Tuesday. A poster and slogan making contest participated by high school students were also conducted on the same day.
