Coastal Clean-Ups

The Philippines is the third largest contributor of plastic to our ocean according to the Ocean Conservancy We must engage packaging companies, LGUs, and other organizations to change from plastic generation to more environment-friendly practices. One of the ways to spread that advocacy is to invite everyone to see the plastic pollution face-to-face during Coastal Clean-ups.

In 2017 Haribon members and volunteers collected at least 57 sacks of plastic waste (utensils, straws, plastic bags, wrappers, diapers, bottles), 83 sacks of Styrofoam waste and 85 sacks of rubber and cloth waste (shoes, slippers, bags).
