Visayan Electric leads coastal cleanup initiative in Liloan



With the onset of the rainy season, one of the major issues we encounter is the amount of trash making its way to our coasts. This is due to it being carried from the mainland to the shores by storm drains, canals, and rivers. If not removed, this trash and debris will make its way into our oceans, negatively affecting marine life.


Visayan Electric, the second largest electric distribution utility in the country, in its commitment to environmental preservation, has conducted a coastal cleanup drive in the Municipality of Liloan as a response to this issue.


On June 15, over 90 volunteers from the distribution utility, assisted by the Local Government Unit of Poblacion, Liloan, conducted a coastal cleanup drive in Brgy. Poblacion, Liloan, collecting trash and debris from the shoreline.


During the cleanup drive, 93 sacks of garbage, or approximately 1.3 tons, were collected along the 1 km stretch of coast of the said barangay.


Councilor Allan Mendoza expressed his gratitude to Visayan Electric for helping preserve their shores.


“Dako akong pagpasalamat sa Visayan Electric sa pagtabang ug gam ug amuma sa among kabaybayonan dire sa Liloan,” he said.

Coastal cleanup drives are an integral part of Visayan Electric’s corporate social responsibility to the environment. Other projects of Visayan Electric aimed at environmental preservation include mangrove planting and tree planting. These projects serve as a testament to Visayan Electric’s commitment to keeping the environment in pristine condition for generations to come.
