Legarda encourages use of envi-friendly campaign materials

As the 2013 campaign season draws closer, reelectionist Senator Loren Legarda encouraged her fellow political candidates to use only environment-friendly campaign materials.

"There is no better manifestation of concern for our country and our people than the use of biodegradable, recycled, or post-consumer materials during the three-month long campaign. From posters to small tokens, we can eliminate unnecessary waste by avoiding plastics and Styrofoam. This 2013, I urge everyone to run a campaign that will not harm the environment," she said.

Legarda, currently the Chair of the Senate Committee on Climate Change and founder of the urban greening program Luntiang Pilipinas, noted that campaign teams should avoid nailing paraphernalia to trees and take appropriate measures to ensure that waste materials are disposed of properly before leaving the area.

"It is up to every single one of us to work for a cleaner and greener Philippines. I appeal to my fellow candidates to take their place at the frontline of spreading awareness about environmental concerns and ensure that all campaign guidelines, whether legal or environmental, are duly met," she concluded.
