THE war against trash in the Philippines, particularly in Cebu City, continues as Let’s Do It (LDI) Philippines continues to conduct activities to raise public awareness on waste management.

LDI Philippines is helping the Sinulog Foundation achieve a zero-waste Sinulog this year.

According to the LDI Philippines website, program activities will be implemented during the Sinulog sa Kabataan on Jan. 10 and on the Sinulog Grand Parade on Jan. 18.

LDI is a non-government organization composed of individuals and groups, which aim to prevent further degradation of the planet through community clean-up drives.

In line with its objectives, the LDI Philippines will conduct a Trash Warrior Boot Camp on Jan. 9 to 11 in Badian, Cebu.

The camp aims to come up with 100 individuals who will motivate five million Filipinos to conduct a nationwide clean-up on Sept. 20, 2015.


From the boot camp, LDI will also pick one man and one woman who will represent the Philippines in the World Clean-Up Conference on Feb. 18 to 21 in Riga, Latvia.

LDI Philippines was founded by Dann Diez, the sole delegate from the Philippines to the World Clean up Conference in Estonia in 2012.

LDI Philippines also conducted other activities to raise awareness on waste management.

Last December, it organized the “ecoART Goes Cinema sa Plaza Independencia,” a free film showing about the environment. LDI also organized a Youth Leader Conference in Cebu City and the 2nd LDI Philippines Asia Conference in San Remegio, Cebu last November.

Also last November, LDI Philippines initiated a coastal clean-up and mangrove planting in San Remegio, Cebu. LAP/With PR
