“Plastic may be cheap and convenient but the impact its production and consumption makes is heavily inconvenient for human health and the environment.” shared Ayeth Enrile, Lead Campaigner for MedWaste Management of the Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Asia.
The Medical Waste Management Program under HCWH Asia declared its support and on-ground participation in the ongoing Coastal Clean-Up and Brand Audit at the Freedom Island in Paranaque City, Philippines this September 11 - 20, 2017.
Enrile added that, “It is ironic that the health care sector despite its fundamental mission to heal the sick and make people better, generates not only plastic waste but hazardous waste in the form of syringes, scalpels, food wrappers, disposable utensils and other plastic materials, that are harmful to human health and the environment.”
In this light, Health Care without Harm Asia strongly supports the #breakfreefromplastic campaign here in the Philippines and condemns the big corporations who continue to pollute the earth and neglect human health in the name of profit.
The Coastal Clean-up is still on going, for those interested to help out please contact Ayeth Enrile through this mobile number 0917 803 1567 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
