In celebration of World Oceans Day, SM City Bataan recently reaffirmed its commitment to environmental stewardship by participating in a Coastal Clean Up event in celebration of World Oceans Day.

The initiative, which took place on June 7, 2024, at the Mangrove Adopted Area of SM City Bataan in Brgy. Pto. Rivas, City of Balanga, brought together a dedicated team of volunteers comprising SM City Bataan employees, agency personnel, security staff, representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), as well as community members from Barangay Pto. Rivas and Tortugas.

The collective effort yielded significant results as participants diligently collected prevalent types of marine debris plaguing coastal areas. Among the items collected were 110 kilograms of cigarette butts, food wrappers, take-out containers, metal and plastic bottle caps, fishing nets, diapers, beverage bottles, and cans.

This coastal cleanup effort not only mitigated immediate environmental hazards but also underscored the importance of proactive conservation practices, not to mention SM Supermalls’ unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability and responsibility.

Through initiatives like the Coastal Clean Up and the broader SM Cares program on environment and volunteerism, SM Supermalls collaborates closely with DENR and local government units (LGUs) to safeguard natural ecosystems, foster environmental awareness, and empower communities to actively participate in environmental protection and preservation efforts. | SM CITY BATAAN PRESS RELEASE
