Lenovo Philippines recently sponsored the International Coastal Clean-up drive at the Anilao in Mabini, Batangas, doing their share in helping to preserve the country’s marine environment.
Now on its 25th year, the International Coastal Clean-up is an annual global volunteer movement organized by the Ocean Conservatory dedicated to cleaning up coastlines, rivers and lakes.
The coastal clean-up activity was spearheaded by Planet Diver Resort with about 140 volunteer divers, some coming from as far as Australia, Japan and Spain.
“By cleaning up the coastlines of debris such as cigarette butts, food wrappers, cans and bottles, volunteers are doing their part to help make our coastline more resilient to the harmful effects of climate change, pollution, over-fishing and damaged marine habitats. This event increases the general public’s awareness to the fact that every coastline plays a significant role in our lives and there are various ways people can help protect it.”, said Dennis Catienza, proprietor of Planet Dive.
Lenovo is a known eco-friendly company and uses post-consumer recycled contents in their products. Some of Lenovo’s Green features include Power Manager, Dynamic Brightness Control, Active Directory and LANDesk which all helps optimize energy usage and consumption.
“At Lenovo, sustainability is a core part of our business and we are continually looking for impactful and meaningful ways to give back to the communities in which we operate. Being involved with the Coastal Clean-up sends a strong message to communities that we must protect and sustain the limited resources we have for us today and for our children in times to come.”, said Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
