In partnership with the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) and the City Government of Muntinlupa, Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. (PCPPI) commits to look after the cleanliness and beautification of the Magdaong River as part of the Adopt-A-River Project. The program allows collaboration between local government units, private sector organizations, and residential communities toward cleaner and safer waterways. The Adopt-A-River Project is also supervised by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB).

Last month, PCPPI volunteers joined members of the Muntinlupa City’s Lake Management Office (LMO) and Environmental Sanitation Center (ESC), the LLDA, and the DENR’s “Estero Rangers” to clean up a portion of the Magdaong River perpendicular to the Poblacion Bridge in Sto. Nino Village. Before the activity, PCPPI’s employees set up safety rails and solar-powered LED lights, and even painted a colorful wall mural by the aforementioned bridge. Volunteers also donated and planted Indian trees by the bridge to enrich the soil further before the rainy season.
