Even slaughterhouses can be green, says Naga Mayor John Bongat
Slaughterhouses don’t always have to be all gore and blood.
Naga Mayor John Bongat joined the three planting around the Naga City abattoir.
In a Facebook post, he said this was the first step toward developing an orchard around the facility, which would feature guyabano, jackfruit, rambutan, mango, cacao, pili and other tropical fruit bearing trees.
The place could also serve as a playground for children living in the nearby employees’ housing projects of the city, he said.
This will make the slaughterhouse more environment friendly, and will make Naga a more livable plate, he added.
Going green is always a good idea!
“TREE PLANTING AROUND NAGA CITY ABATTOIR, the first step into its development into an orchard and park where guyabano, jackfruit, rambutan, mango, cacao, pili and other tropical fruit bearing trees will grow and make the facility’s surroundings (open space of more than 1 hectare) clean and green. The orchard/park can also serve as playground for kids in the adjacent employees’ housing projects of the city comprising of 141 units in Johnville 2 and 48 units in Johnville 1.
