Therefore, we must care for it as we care for our lives. We are part of the environment. Don't let it die, because it's dying every minute as we want only to throw garbage. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time to plant is today. Let's continue to be n Earth Warriors as Secretary Gina Lopez of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) wants us to be", reveals Dulag, Leyte Mayor elect Mildred Joy Que on the occasion of the Synchronized Tree Planting Activity held at Brgy., Sabang, Daguitan Dulag, Leyte during the Nagkaurosa ngan Sabangnon Katilingban Service Cooperative (NASAKASECO)'s first anniversary on November 20, 2016.
