Shoreline trash is not only an ugly sight, but is also a threat to the environment. If you get disgusted by the trash you see swimming with you on the beach, then you can just imagine what it does to wildlife, most especially in coastlines in La Union, where sea turtles or pawikans go to nest.
There's no reason to lose hope because there are people out there that will spend time and effort to take care of and clean up their polluted environment. Last April 30, over a hundred volunteers came out to help clean the shores of San Juan, La Union, together with ABS-CBN Lifestyle, One Music PH, Bantay Kalikasan, and H&M. Several bags of trash were collected, which included cigarette butts, glass bottles, and plastic waste. To cap the event, the organizers hosted a charity concert called One Paradise featuring local artists like Matteo Guidicelli, Carlo Aquino, Kiana Valenciano, Kjwan, 6 Cyclemind, and more!
