I was browsing through google.com/news today when this article caught my eye and I'm glad I read it: "Bike and Hike for Mother Earth" to highlight Earth Day in Cebu on April 22.
It's so true, all of us can do something for our Earth not just because it's Earth Day this April 22 and not just because Mother Earth needs it but REALLY because it's our RESPONSIBILITY. Let me say that again, it's our RESPONSIBILITY!
A lot of us throw trash just anywhere thinking it's just a candy wrapper or a plastic bottle, it cannot surely do any harm on Earth? Imagine if billions of people throw a candy wrapper per day, that would be gigantic mountain of candy wrappers.
I'm blessed to have read the article because I learned that still there are people who want to do something for this Earth.
Here are some of them:
Bike and Hike
- is one of the major highlights in Cebu as the country celebrates Philippines' Earth Day on April 22.
Spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-7), the activity signifies commitment in strengthening efforts in institutionalizing and mainstreaming climate change through the implementation of the Climate Change Act of 2009.
Bikers and ordinary individuals are urged to participate in the 'Bike and Hike' event as a way of raising public consciousness and soliciting wide massive public support to care for the environment and fight global warming.
On April 22, interested individuals who want to join the activity will converge in Ayala Mall at the Cebu Business Park at 8:00 a.m. and together hike or bike towards SM City Cebu where the latter will host the two-day eco-fair dubbed the 'Green Expo.'
10 Million Movement
- This intends to gather or collect 10 million acts or commitments for the environment.
A paper-based signing up booth has been put up in SM City Cebu since March 26 to gather the commitments and reach the 10 M target. One may choose among the 101 ways for a greener lifestyle for his/her environmental commitments. Another option is also to register and be counted through the worldwide web by logging on to www.10mm.ph or register by texting GREEN (space) REG (space) first name (slash) middle initial (slash) last name (slash) 10MM and send to 5777 (Example: GREEN REG Juan/C/De la Cruz/10MM.
