After celebrating at two of the country’s biggest festivals this January, Globe strengthened its commitment to environmental sustainability by organizing clean-up drive activities for both Sinulog Festival in Cebu and Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo.
At Sinulog, Globe employees, partner organizations, and other volunteers spearheaded the cleanup drive on January 20, after the TM Republikaravan and Globe Night concerts in The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu. Attended by roughly 17,000 guests, both concerts were the part of the main highlights of #GlobeSinulog 2019.
Meanwhile, the #GlobeDinagyang clean-up drive was held on January 26, after the Love Dance party in Atria Park District. Featuring the hottest DJs and MCs from both Manila and Iloilo, Love Dance provided an electrifying party experience for over 3000 attendees. Other activities included in the festival lineup was the Dinagyang Esports Festival and Convention and Sadsad sa Dinagyang.
Over 30 Globe employees and festival goers volunteered to collect the trash that was left after these big events. They were able to collect nearly 50 extra-large trash bags containing wrappers, food waste, plastics, bottles, and more.
