26 January 2019, Siniloan, Laguna. One of FEED’s most active Living Legacy partners, Mondo Project: One Shirt, One Tree – led by Co-Founders & -Owners Rej and Bogs Balangat, also FEED Ambassadors since 2017 – today had planted by our Student and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) 14 additional indigenous Philippine forest trees added to the Sierra Madre mountains. This brings their total since launching the One Shirt, One Tree to 305 trees restored to the Philippine forest cover!
The 14 native Philippine trees added to the Sierra Madre Mountains last 2 February 2019 were planted by FEED’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partner PMFTC’s iCause and JVOFI’S Embrace planters – thank you too for adding to your 2,020 target!
Thanks to their One Shirt, One Tree campaign established in 2017, Mondo Project’s eco-friendly messaged T-Shirts sold online have been gaining popularity and traction since founding Mondo Project in 2017.
FEED’s SAVE plantings take place every last Saturday of the month.

The Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) is a 6,765-hectare property that straddles Siniloan, Laguna and Real, Quezon. It was acquired by the University of the Philippines on Feb. 8, 1930 by virtue of Republic Act 3608 – “An act endowing the University of the Philippines with portions of the public domain for additional support and maintenance, and for other purposes.” (John Glen S. Sarol)
Forester Reynaldo Lorida, headed the planting and – with the support of about 25 roving Forest Guards – helps maintain the Laguna-Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) site of over 9,000 hectares in the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, demonstrating over 20 years of dedicated environmental protection as one of FEED’s first and longest LIVING LEGACY partners.
In 2015, the Philippine government submitted to the United Nations the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry.
FEED runs a number of Students and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE); Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – such as mangrove planting for coastal protection or ridge reforestation plantings; One Child, One Tree; Bio-Intensive Gardens (BIG) for nutrition in public elementary schools and other spaces; Climate Change Survival 101 and other LIVING LEGACY programs – customised environmental engagement activities for individuals and organisations interested in contributing to climate change adaptation efforts and greening critical areas such as watersheds, ridges, and reefs that all require rehabilitation.
Join us! Help us reverse the Earth’s “hothouse climate” tipping point.
