#ItStartsWithMe

We know our common home, Earth, is in danger. We’ve seen climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss all over our newsfeeds. But what’s next? Are we going to just sit around and wait?

This Earth Month, we challenge you to start the change in Palawan. Join our social media campaign toward eco-conscious citizens. All you have to do is post a photo of any of your initiatives to help protect the environment. Use our official hashtags #ItStartsWithMe #ImWithPCSD, and don’t forget to tag and challenge your friends to share their own sustainable practices.

Are you ready to start the change? There is no better time to act than NOW!
