foodpanda, a food delivery service app that has been available in Davao City for the past few months, is giving its support and initiative to help the World Wide Fund for Nature in its campaign to save the environment through its #GOGREEN campaign.
AYOKO rin ng plastic especially when it refers to persons, seriously, I am not kidding. But what this campaign is targeted at is against the use of PLASTIC – food bags, food containers, plastic bottles, cutlery, etc. when dining or ordering food for delivery.
In Davao City for the past few years, establishment especially those in the food business has been discouraged to use plastics. But the cause to fight against the use of plastic is way far from over. Not all establishments in the city, for example, has joined in to stop the use of plastic straws. Many establishments still use and give out plastic straws. If you wanna SAVE OUR OCEAN, in your own little way, stop and avoid using plastic straws. Say NO to it if you can and appeal to the owners to join in the cause to NOT use plastic anymore.
