ALABEL, Sarangani (October 11, 2010) – The DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources)-led consumer welfare month celebration this year kicked off with a tree planting activity at the Capitol ground Monday (October 11).
This year’s theme is “Consumers: Green Multipliers”.
“One day, it might be too late,” Governor Migs Dominguez said at the opening ceremony. “While it is true that we have a growing population, we have lesser portion of land to plant and lesser communities who have their own land to till.”
“Let us all work to save and protect our environment and focus our resources especially on education,” the governor added.
Students from Alabel National Science High School joined the tree planting activity at the Capitol ground led by Governor Dominguez, DENR provincial officer Geronimo Sequito and trade and industry provincial director Nenita Barroso.
“We cannot bring back what was lost already, but we can do more in protecting our planet by planting more trees,” Sequito said.
Sequito urged fellow government employees in Sarangani to become models on solid waste management.
“Ours is not just service by fulfillment. Government service is a service of mission,” DTI provincial director Nenita Barroso said.
“Service with compassion is working beyond eight hours in the office, and even spending our own money because we get paid anyway,” Barroso said.
Sarangani DTI will conduct price monitoring activities in the different municipalities throughout the month. (Russtum G. Pelima/SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
