Event: Sharing Responsibility for the Environment, 2nd National Integrated Waste Management Exhibition

Environment Summit 2016 Exibition

Hello Sweeties!

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the 2nd National Integrated Waste Management Exhibition as part of the 2016 Environmental Summit  or one of the highlights of Philippine Environment Month, held at SM Mega`s Trade Hall 1 & 2.  It was a 4 day event that showcased the programs and projects aimed to reduce air, land, and water pollution, and the ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

That is why when I was invited by Mommy Bloggers Philippines to Doctors without Borders /Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) event, I was excited to learn more about their #AskPharma  campaign.
