In line with the advocacy to enlighten PUPians on the importance of campus waste management, the PUP SEED Network conducted a forum titled “Huwag na Tayong Magplastikan, 2019 na!”, held on January 18, at Claro M. Recto Hall, PUP – Main building.

Mr. Pepe Herrera, also known as Benny from the popular show “Ang Probinsyano”, shared his thoughts regarding the viral photo of him collecting trash on the beach, which relates to his advocacy of eco-friendly living. “Changing our lifestyle to help the environment can’t be easily adapted in a day, but we can practice it little by little, and within that process we are already contributing to Mother Earth,” Herrera said.  He also shared how living a minimalist life has changed his life.

The participants actively engaged in the elaboration of the Republic Act no. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 by Mr. Noel Cabile, a Clean-Air Campaigner from No Burn Philippines.
