In keeping with its “A Green Life is A Great Life” manifesto, PC, has tapped its Siaton, Negros Oriental dealers to beef up the coastal cleanup drive of MCP in in the southwestern part of the Visayas last October 26, 2021.

Their efforts together with MCP and other volunteers netted tons of plastic trash and other debris from both shore and nearby waters, with more cleanup activities expected in the following months. The Philippines ranks as the world’s third largest source of pollution which makes us extra vulnerable given our archipelago of more than 7,600 islands with nearly 36,300 km of coastline and imperiling one of the world’s richest in marine resources if the peril of plastic pollution remains unabated.
