Kahit pasko, walang plastik! El Nido Mayor Nieves Rosento proud of coconut husk Xmas tree
El Nido, Palawan is taking its advocacy to protect the environment seriously, especially its move to minimize the use of plastic items.
The campaign is not taking a break even during the holidays. Even its Christmas tree is not the usual plastic one, according to Mayor Nieves Rosento.
She shared a photo of the town’s Christmas tree ingeniously made from coconut husks.
It’s not the typical green tree, but it doesn’t make the occasion any less festive at all!
“El Nido Christmas Tree out of coconut husk. #NOPLASTIC,” she posted.
