April 22, 2022 - PENRO Davao de Oro employees led by PENR Officer Rita Fe C. Gunn led the celebration of Earth Day 2022 by planting native and fruit trees at the roadside of Purok 2, Poblacion, Nabunturan, Davao de Oro.
This year’s celebration banners the theme “Invest in our planet” which appeals to everyone and all sectors to join the call to change the business climate, political climate and how we take action on climate [change].
Earth Day originated as an environmental revolution on April 22, 1970, which was led by the then US Senator Gaylord Nelson to push environmental protection on the national agenda. Such action led to a global campaign advocating for collective protection and preservation of our planet.
As to PENRO Davao de Oro, the best way to give justice to this celebration and to put this year's theme into action is to plant trees as this is yet the best way to buy us time while we're determining other effective ways to combat climate change.
“Tree planting is just one of the many ways we can contribute something good to our planet, and as we celebrate Earth Day, we call on every citizen to reflect on our actions and choices towards the environment as these will have a domino effect on our planet whether beneficial or detrimental. We should always think, choose and act the right way towards achieving a clean and healthy planet,” said PENRO Gunn. | 𝐶𝑀𝐶𝑙𝑒𝑜𝑓𝑒
