Even before the end of the 3rd month of the “Gas up for a tree”planting activity of PTT, 10,000 new trees have been planted.
The Tree Planting activity was done at a denunded portion of the Bataan National Park in the town of Morong.
CEO Wisarn Chawalitanon is happy with the results from the support of their customers.
“We didnt expect to achieve our target so early, And we owe it all to all our volunteers, partners and supporters.
“Gas up for a tree”is part of the Corporate Social Responsibility projects of PTT, throught its foundation under the presidency of Paul Patricio Senador which launched the tree planting activity last May.
The local tribe of Aeta in the region, Magbukun Tribe will be the appointed caretakers of the trees planted in the area as part of their livelihood, with more than 100 families benefiting.
Here you can see DENR undersecretary Demetrio Ignacio, expressing his support and happiness with PTT’s project.
The program is supported by PTT, DENR and local government units and municipalities.
DENR undersecretary Demetrio Ingancio, was one one of the fervent supporters of the activity that made his way all the way up to the planting area to celebrate the 10,000 tree planted by PTT.
PTT’s tree planting project is a welcome move for everyone, especially with the rate our forests are disappearing. On the way up to the area for event, here are some of the wonderful sights we saw.
Each tree is planted by PTT for every customer that gasses up with a total of 1,000 php. Each 200php load will get you 1 sticker. For every tree plated, a number is given and tagged. The progress an the growth of the tree can be monitored via an android application.
As part of the celebrations, the tribal games were also held during the event.
Various tests of skills were done as a competition among the Aeta Tribe.
1st among the games held was archery. Above is a shot of one of the members of the tribe as he prepares to shoot an arrow.
Another game we were able to witness was the spear throwing contest.
PTT’s celebration of their 10,000 trees planting activity was a success. It is nice to know that there are companies out their that do there share in helping restore our planet earth. As mentioned by 1 of the guest speakers, for every 1 car on the road, we need at least 10 trees. So Keep up the good work!!!
Our group thanks PTT for inviting us to join the momentous event!! Cheers!
