Local celebs celebrate Earth Day 2020

With everyone’s attention on Covid-19 and the horrible effects it has wrought on our country and all around the world, most of us have forgotten that April 22 was Earth Day.

Lucky for us, several local celebrities have given their time and lent their voices in celebration and in support of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day 2020, and encouraged their fans to unite with them against the huge challenges facing our planet.

Among the celebrities who celebrated this year’s Earth Day were, Piolo Pascual, Dingdong Dantes, Joel Torre, Noel Cabangon, Marc Nelson, Bacolod Mayor Bing Leonardia, and Iza Calzado just to name a few. They all did their part and led this cause by sharing the “climate actions” that they personally are taking to try in order to save our planet “in crisis.”

These actions included practices in conserving energy, buying only essential needs to reduce the damage to our natural resources, engaging in zero waste management, and using single-use plastics, among others.

Volunteerism and teaching disaster preparedness were just some of the other ways mentioned in order to help Filipinos prepare for climate change, of which has become a hard fact that unfortunately, some world leaders do not seem to accept or grasp.

These are what they have to say down below:

Dong also served as Commissioner-at-Large of the National Youth Commission (NYC) and, in 2015, he spearheaded the #NowPH campaign that resulted in 3.6 million pledges for the historic COP 21, and in the issuance of Proclamations declaring November 25 of every year as the ‘National Day for Youth in Climate Action’ and ‘ASEAN Youth in Climate Action and Disaster Resilience Day’. Official partnerships with DILG and OCD were also sealed to strategically engage the youth in disaster risk reduction and management. #EarthDay #EarthDay2020 #EarthDayPH #ClimateAction #EarthDayEveryDay
