Earth Day Event Promotes Eco-Friendly Alternatives

As part of the growing movement for Earth Day with the theme “Planet vs. Plastics,” the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is urging the public to eliminate single-use plastics. In support of this initiative, PENRO Capiz conducted a soil bagging activity using “tampipi,” a locally sourced and handmade seedling bag made of buri (Corypha elata Roxb.) as an eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags.

The activity took place in Brgy. San Antonio, Tapaz, Capiz, on April 22, 2024.
