Beauty queens rumampa versus plastic

By: - 07/03/2019

RUMAMPA ang mga beauty queen kasama ang mga environmental group para ikampanya ang pagpapalit ng single use plastic (SUP) ng eco-friendly alternatives.

Pumunta ang Miss Earth Foundation at Mother Earth Foundation kasama ang EcoWaste Coalition sa Farmers Market sa Cubao, Quezon City upang hikayatin ang publiko na iwasan na ang paggamit ng SUP na sandaling panahon lamang gagamitin pero magiging polusyon sa mundo ng hanggang 1,000 taon.

Sumama sa pangangampanya ng paggamit ng bayong at reusable substitute sina Miss Air Philippines 2018 Zahra Bianca Saldua at Miss Water Philippines 2018 Berjayneth Chee.

“It’s high time for all sectors of the society to break our craving for plastic bags and other single-use disposables that have become a bane for the environment, especially our oceans which are now choking with macro and microplastic waste,” ani Chee.

Umaabot sa 5.25 trilyong piraso ng plastic debris ang nakakalat sa karagatan ayon sa mga pag-aaral.

“Aside from polluting the oceans, plastic bags that end up being burned or buried in disposal facilities also emit harmful pollutants that can contaminate the air we breathe and the soil where we grow our food, posing threats to human health,” saad naman ni Saldua.

Nanawagan naman si EcoWaste zero waste campaigner Ochie Tolentino sa gobyerno na ipagbawal na ang paggamit ng SUP.
