Under the leadership of Governor Nini Ynares, supported by Rizal Provincial Board Member Bobot Marquez, the YES To Green Team visited Sitio Pangolorin near Barangay San Jose and Barangay Calawis in Antipolo City to plant bamboo seedlings.

       BM Marquez said the bamboo planting project is meant to prevent soil erosion, reduce the carbon footprint on the planet and to prevent global warming. He fully supports the advocacy of Governor Ynares to preserve the environment with her YES to Green Program (which stands for Ynares Eco System to Green Program).

       With the team were Kagawad Domingo Baloloy, Antipolo City Environment and Waste Management Office officials head by Engineer Violeta S. Faiyaz, employees of Antipolo City Government and volunteers from both Barangay San Jose and Barangay Calawis.

       Provincial Agriculturist Dr. Reynaldo Bonita, Provincial Tourism Head Dr. Corazon Laserna, Councilor Edward O’Hara, Task Force Kalinisan, LLDA and many others were with them.

       They were also joined by employees of private companies Hardrock Aggregates, Gozon Development, Teresa Marble Corporation, Solid Cement/Cemex and Frey-Fil Corporation.

       YES to Green is an aggressive campaign geared towards environmental protection through cleaning, greening, and recycling, implemented from provincial down to the community and household level.

       Under the lady governor’s leadership, Rizal became the only province in the entire country to receive a Hall of Fame Award from the National Competitiveness Council after being adjudged as the Most Competitive Province in the Philippines for three consecutive years.
