Toyota starts with simultaneous national coastal clean-up and mangrove planting

Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) recently led 1,900 volunteers spread out across 35 locations nationwide for its very first “Start Your Impossible” National Coastal Clean-up and Mangrove Planting weekend.

Held in partnership with TMP’s dealership network, NGO and LGU partners plus various coastal communities all over the Philippines, the volunteers were able to plant 40,000 mangrove propagules and collect 1,200 sacks of waste by the end of the activity.

“With each and every volunteer cleaning up the coasts and planting mangrove seedlings, all spread out across 35 locations nationwide, we are indeed starting our impossible, one place at a time. If we continue doing these small acts for our environment, soon our big vision of building sustainable communities will become possible,” says TMP President Satoru Suzuki during the opening program at Lian Mangrove Park, in Batangas.
