The Monterrazas de Cebu subdivision partnered with the Grade 6 pupils of Banawa Elementary School for its tree planting program last Aug. 28 at the subdivision’s site in barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City.

Marga Villalon, vice president of Genvi, the developer of Monterrazas de Cebu, said the tree planting activity was aimed to address Genvi’s mission of taking care of the environment and to involve the students of Banawa Elementary School, Monterrazas de Cebu's adopted school in the program. Lawyer Dindo Perez, Genvi’s managing director, said pro-environmental activities such as the tree planting and Linap creek clean-up have been part of the “green” efforts of Genvi and Monterrazas de Cebu.

In previous years, Genvi has planted trees within Monterrazas in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress.
