We Went Tree Planting to Save Our Environment and Here’s What Happened
Did you know that Philippine citizens are actually legally required to plant one tree every month?
Earlier this week, the Preview team joined Origins for a special Earth Month activity. For their Green the Planet campaign, we visited the Laguna Quezon Land Grant in Siniloan, Laguna and did tree planting in partnership with FEED, a non-profit organization committed to sustainable education for the environment. From our visit, we learned that there’s so much more to being eco-friendly than skipping a plastic straw.
With more than 40 participants, the goal was to plant more than 500 trees. Part of the team are employees of Estée Lauder Companies and content creators such as Renée de Guzman, Bea Marin, Lexi Mendiola, and Yanna Cowper. It started off with a quick hike to the planting site, where all our seedlings awaited.
