Year after year since the 1990’s, the Philippines participates in the worldwide celebration of Earth Day.
The Philippines’ unique celebration is that it is a coming together of government, civil society and churches to highlight the country’s environmental health and renew their partnership to work for the common good.
Since 1999, the partnership has evolved into a loose coalition called Earth Day Network Philippines with a Secretariat that directly coordinates the Network’s members from local government units to non-governmental organizations, from business corporations to churches and academic institutions and from big organizations to individuals who want to do something for the environment.
Through Presidential Proclamations, Earth Day has become a permanent environmental holiday of the country and has become a fixture in the national environmental consciousness.
For Earth Day 2013, the proposed theme is to have a simultaneous Eco Fair across all SM Malls which will highlight Eco friendly products or innovations by our tenants or by cottage industries/local inventors.
