MORE Power Participates in Coastal Clean-Up

MORE Power Participates in Coastal Clean-Up: More Electric and Power Corporation (MORE Power Iloilo) personnel from its security team and customer care department participated in the International Coastal Clean-up Day, a global event encouraging the masses to participate in cleaning up shorelines of debris and garbage. It is a day dedicated to preserving and protecting bodies of water and is pioneered by conservation groups and environmental organizations. MORE Power, since the start of its operation, has always been active in community activities and environmental advocacies. The distribution utility has spearheaded and participated in activities that “do more” for the consumers it serves and the environment the community lives in. It had initiated mangrove planting activities, releasing fingerlings at the Iloilo River, provision of seeds to farmers, and among the many, many activities. Just recently, it aided in a massive coastal cleanup in the mangrove area along Iloilo Esplanade 03 and 04 in Iloilo City. MORE Power Iloilo Security Head Rudin Tunding revealed that it was President and CEO Mr. Roel Castro who encouraged them to play an active role in the community. Their group, named MORE Power Guardians of the Environment, has been serving the community beyond their normal duties in the power distribution facility. “Since from the start ito na yung ginagawa namin. To join any community service with regards to or in connection with the environment,” says Tunding. “Sana lahat maging responsible kasi yung pagmamahal natin sa environment is everybody’s concern,” he added. International Coastal Clean-up Philippines Coordinator Ian Varona praised how MORE Power highlighted the spirit of volunteerism among its employees especially when it comes to advocacies for the environment. “Very significant, the bigger the trash we can do mas maayo nga tool ina para mabal-an ta ang ano klase ordinances, regulations para sa local government para ma address ang root cause of the problem. Ga pasalamat gid kami sa MORE Power sa ila sustainability program. Actually every month, gapadala gid sila volunteers diri sa amon,” says Varona. Source: www.andreaguanco.com
