This iReport is part of an assignment:
Your Green Innovations
An Expression of Christian Faith
The Association of the Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines participated on the Tree Planting Activity organized by Haribon Foundation on September 3, 2011 at Tanay, Rizal.
Sr. Flolyn Catungal, Executive Secretary of the Association has shared with me her message on this activity.
“One of the resolutions made during our Biennial Convention on Climate Change held in July is to plant trees. I believe, our activity today is one way to concretize our action to care for the earth. We have to plant trees because our mother is groaning and dying, if we will not do our share, we might as well perish with her. Care for the Mother Earth is an expression of our Christian Faith. We have to do our part and encourage more people to do the same especially the youth to have this conscious effort to care for the earth."
According to Haribon Foundation, “Global problems may be big but they can be tackled by individual actions. Each of us can do something about climate change through tree planting of native tree species. The good news is that through tree planting of native trees we are bringing back the natural sequesters of CO2, and the impacts of climate change are abated. Revival of our rainforests is vital to our survival and ensures water supply for agriculture, energy and our household needs.”
