In celebration of the Coastal Clean Up Campaign, the E. Zobel Foundation spearheaded the clean up drive and mangrove planting in Brgy. Balibago, Calatagan, Batangas last September 22, 2012. The one-day event mobilized almost a hundred people composed of the Zobel scholars, De La Salle Zobel School students and the local community headed by their barangay officials. The clean up drive collected hundred kilos of mixed trash of plastic materials, diapers, bottles, old clothes/textiles, wood and branches of trees and water lily. The La Salle student volunteers planted 2,000 mangrove propagules in Balibago Mangrove Reforestation Area .
