Epson Precision (Philippines), Inc. (EPPI) together with the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) and the the Malaraya-Malepunyo Watershed Protection Council (MMWPC) planted about 4,000 seedlings at Mt. Malaraya-Malepunyo (Biak-na-Bundok) in Brgy, Talisay, Lipa City, Batangas.
Leading this year’s tree planting and nurturing activity is EPPI President Kazuyuki Amano with over 190 volunteers from EPPI.
About 4,000 seedlings of various trees indigenous to the Philippines such as Narra, Kupang, Tibig, Toog and Taluto were planted in two hectares of land. This was a 60% increase from the number of seedlings Epson planted last year.
Joyce Tan, EPPI’s Environment Manager said “This only shows our devotion to planting and nurturing trees in maintaining a pollution-free environment. Aside from the increase in number of seedlings, the sincere commitment from everyone in the organization – from our President to our staff – is the true indication of how being environment-friendly is entrenched in our corporate consciousness,”
