MANILA, Philippines - With the message “Save the Planet: Go Vegetarian,” the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) on Friday launched its new Earth Day advertising campaign featuring Filipina beauty queen and fashion model Sandra Seifert.
She was presented to the press, creatively “dressed” in body paint of primarily blue and green, representing the Earth's oceans and continents.
Various national and local government agencies nationwide, and private groups like PETA, have organized various activities to mark this year’s Earth Day.
The city government of Makati, through the Department of Environmental Services, is set to lead the celebration of Earth Day 2012 dubbed “Earth Day Everyday, Everywhere” on Sunday April 22, 2012, at 6am at the Ayala Triangle Gardens.
Makati Mayor Jejomar Erwin S. Binay said Makati will host the event in partnership with Earth Day Network Philippines, Inc. (EDNPI), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), and Ayala Foundation, Inc.
Earth Day 2012 aims to demonstrate the shared commitment of all stakeholders, including government and the private sector, to promoting a healthy and sustainable environment.
Binay will be joined by DENR Secretary Ramon Paje and EDNPI Chairman Bert Guevarra.
