Baguio City will join the celebration of World No Tobacco Day on May 31 with a simultaneous plogging activity dubbed, “Contain that butt.”

Mayor Benjamin Magalong encouraged the barangays, offices, schools, organizations, groups and individuals to join the different district health centers in plogging or picking up cigarette butts and other litters while jogging, walking, or going about their daily chores.

Assembly time is at 7 a.m. and plogging proper is from 8 to 10 a.m. 

Participants will pick up trash as they walk around the community or office premises and segregate empty bottles.

The task force also encouraged participants to take photos of the trash and cigarette butts collected for documentation and post these on their FB accounts and/or page with the hashtags “#WNTD2022”, “#AmoyPinoAmoyBaguio”, and “#BreatheBaguio” and also tag SF Baguio page. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
