3 Philippine Sustainability Orgs You Can Join Today
It’s time to put that support in full action to help the cause close to our hearts!
This summer tells it all—or more like, our climate getting weirder and unpredictable by the day shows the heavy impact of global warming on our dear mother earth. The next best thing to do is to adapt to the sustainability wave, if you aren’t already, and create small ways to help us save our world from further damage and destruction.
From proper waste segregation to supporting brands and their go green efforts, our everyday decision matters when it comes to championing sustainability. Even spreading word and encouraging others to act eco-consciously offers a huge contribution—and even more so if done collectively.
