PTT Philippines shows their consistent concern in reliving the bare forest in Bataan National Park – Sitio Kanawan, Morong, Bataan, when 300 volunteers joins the company’s 2nd tree planting project. This “Gas Up for A Tree” campaign also aims to help the Magbukun tribe, as they work hand in hand with the company on taking care of trees planted within the 50 hectares of the company’s adopted mountain.
The tree planting volunteers from different sectors, like students, government and non government organizations was led by PTT Philippines President and CEO Wisarn Chawalitanon, along with PTT Philippines Foundation President Paul Patricio J. Senador and Chief Presidential Advisor for Environmental Protection Secretary Neric Acosta. As what Chawalitanon said, “This is our way of giving back to Mother Earth and to the Philippines for embracing us (PTT) with the Filipino Community“.
The Thai-owned gasoline company tied up with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the National Commission of Indigenous People (NCIP), the National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP), Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU), Mga Bayani ng Kalikasan, Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA), Municipality or Morong, Bataan and Wide Out Technology, to make this campaign a success.
This campaign started May 23 of this year; they had their first tree planting launch last June 29, 2013 and their goal is to plant 10,000 trees by August 23. Travelers and drivers can also be part of this tree planting activity as a way to help the environment and give back to the community. For every P1000.00 worth of gasoline and diesel products, purchased at any PTT gasoline station nationwide, is equivalent to one tree that will be planted and be named after the customer. One can join the the tree planting project, by either single receipt purchase or through accumulated purchase. Currently, there are 50 PTT Philippines stations nationwide, so to know more about “Gas Up for A Tree” project and be part of the campaign, visit the nearest retail store in your area.
