Various environment watchdogs on Monday gathered together and called on all political parties and candidates to be responsible and engage in what they call as green campaign activities and platforms.
They urged candidates to go “green” in both their electoral platform and campaign strategies.
The official campaign period starts 13 February, for senatorial bets and partylist groups.
The watchdogs also dared all political parties and candidates to incorporate ecological sustainability into their electoral platforms.
“We further ask them to show their concern for Mother Earth by rolling out an eco-friendly campaign that will not harm and pollute the ecosystems,” their statement said.
For them, an eco-friendly campaign should be compliant with the country’s electoral, environmental and health laws.
