GGDC in partnership with Clark Water and Department of Environment and Natural Resources conducted a tree planting activity held at Villa Maria, Porac Pampanga on July 19, 2019 for another CSR project.
A total of 150 Seedlings was successfully planted on the adopted area. Benefits of planting these seedlings was also discussed by GGDC’s Environmental Officer Mr. Dante Aguas, these benifits include:
- Trees Clean the Air. Trees improve air quality by filtering harmful pollutants from the air we breathe.
- Trees Prevent Water Pollution. Absorbs pollutants from the river.
- Trees Save Water. Helps the surface water to sip through the underground and replenish the aquifer (underground layer of water-bearing permeable rock or unconsolidated materials).
- Livelihood to the Aeta Community. The seedlings planted will be harvested in a systematic way, by the Aetas, after 3 years to be sold, thus providing income.
