    As a way of giving back to the planet, Juan Earth is a grassroots effort produced by Write On Track and its dedicated team of community volunteers. Celebrating its 5th year, the marketing services agency wanted to educate and empower people to create a healthier and more sustainable world.

    “Over a thousand individuals participated in the event, some shared their performing arts talents, some shared their time, some donated, some volunteered, some provided resources, and some just held our hand,” Write On Track Chief Operating Officer Koko Tamura said. “It was truly a heart-melting moment for us when we saw all are participating and contributing to our CSR efforts.”

    During the event, the activity center was loaded with different activities such as talks and workshops about the different group advocacies. There were booths installed where visitors could visit and support projects of the participating NGOs and schools they were interested in.

    In support of “Adopt-a-Seedling” program by the Haribon Foundation, visitors were able to adopt a seedling of any of the Philippine native tree species like Narra, Dao, Kamagong, Makaasim, and Lauan, with a minimum donation of Php 350. Proceeds will support the forest restoration activities of Haribon Foundation in denuded forests around the country.
