LAOAG CITY (April 25) – “I will conserve energy.” “Avoid shooting birds.” “Use organic materials.”
These are just some of the pledges made by city employees during the Earth Day Pledge Signing in celebration of Earth Day 2011.
Vice Mayor Eduardo Domingo led the signing at the Laoag City Hall.
Domingo said Laoag City joined the entire global community in preserving Mother Earth as he called on all employees to protect the environment and keep the city clean and green.
Laoag City is a hall of fame awardee of Cleanest and Greenest City title in Region 1.
Aside from the pledge signing, employees joined hands in cleaning the coastal barangays of Caoacan, La Paz and Gabu.
Some barangays also sold organic vegetables and vegetable-based snacks at the City Basketball Court. (ANL/CPC-PIA 1 Ilocos Norte)
