My initial plan for the Earth Day is to clean Libaong Beach only, but it will now become a municipal wide clean up after our meeting with LGU Panglao yesterday. That means we are going to clean other beaches in Panglao including Bolod, Alona, Danao, Doljo. All public and private sectors will be invited to participate. There will also be a film showing after the clean up. And if there is still time, we will demonstrate how to make toothpaste, deodorant, reusable bags using old tshirts, and pillows out of plastic rubbish for the women's group.
Regarding the proposal to make a bill to regulate the use of plastic straws, after explaining them about the dangers of plastic, they decided to make and pass a legislation to ban ALL single use plastic in Panglao. They appointed me to be the resource speaker on the hearing to convince the whole Sangguniang Bayan group to sign this bill.
I am so stoked you guys. Plastic Free Bohol movement is finally getting heard. Thank you for your support and continue refusing single use plastic. Yeeewwwwwww!
Will post final details of the Earth Day activity after our final meeting. Stay tuned. @plasticfree_bohol #bohol #moreoceanlessplastic #5gyresambassador #plasticfreeforthesea #protectwhatyoulove
