The Earth Hour tarp on the facade of Benpres BuildingThe Lopez Group joined again, for the third year, the awareness campaign of Earth Hour with this year’s theme “Going Beyond the Hour,” led by Lopez Group Foundation Inc.’s CSR Council’s Environment Committee.
Giant tarpaulins and billboards, including high-visibility posters, were displayed starting at Benpres Building, the Group’s corporate headquarters. In line with saving the environment, recycled tarpaulins were used and will be used again next year.
Lopez Group employees from as far as Leyte and Batangas shut off their lights for one hour on March 23, from 8:30 p.m. till 9:30 p.m. The Lopez Museum and Library’s Marga Villanueva texted her friends, “Happy Earth Hour! Turned off our lights.” Earth Hour was also trending in social media during that time.
In appreciation, LGFI president Cedie Lopez Vargas received a letter of thanks from Atty. Angela Consuelo Ibay, the national director of Earth Hour and WWF, for the Lopez Group’s support of Earth Hour.
