Clean the ocean and get Globe Rewards

Globe customers can get 100 Rewards points when they participate in the coastal clean up drive led by the International Coastal Clean-Up Philippines (ICC Philippines) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on September 21 in selected locations around Metro Manila and Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales.

The Philippine government has declared in 2003 the third Saturday of September of each year as an International Coastal Clean-Up (ICC) Day to raise awareness on the growing marine debris problem. ICC Day, which is being observed worldwide, gathers volunteers to remove trash from beaches, coasts, rivers, waterways, and underwater dive sites and to record information on the debris collected.

In line with its 917 celebration this month, Globe is calling on its customers to sign up and volunteer to help clean up Baseco Beach in Tondo, Manila which is part of the Manila Bay coastline; and the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA), a wetland situated south of Manila Bay recognized internationally due to the critical role it plays in the survival of threatened bird species.

Globe customers may also participate in the coastal clean-up at the Lighthouse Marina Resort, Moonbay Marina Complex, Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales.

Individuals or groups who want to be part of the activities may sign up at the following: (Individual Registration) https://forms.gle/vWYdvfzEz5SqBaus5 ; (Group Registration) https://forms.gle/onDT8qktqjYsGH7r5 ; (ICC) http://www.icc.ph/volunteer.html.
