Yamashin Filters joins the green caravan

Yamashin Filters joins the green caravan

On June 30, the day President Benigno Aquino III was officially sworn into office, Yamashin Cebu Filters Manufacturing Corporation also renewed its oath to help save mother earth.

The company brought 24 employees to plant 3,000 tree seedlings in 2 hectares which it has committed to reforest through PBSP's Adopt-A-Hectare scheme.

“We come up with this activity in order to save mother earth,” Mark Lloyd Cabahug said during the event.

The two-hectare area is located within the Kotkot-Lusaran Watershed Forest Reserve, which serves water to communities located as far as the town of Compostela.

Indigenous tree seedlings such as the narra, tagilumboy and lumbang were planted in the area.

“Sa ing-ani na pamaagi,  ang atuang future ganeration kay makalanghap sad og preskong hangin (Through this, we are assured that our future generation could also breathe in fresh air),” Cabahug added.
