Helping Greenpeace can be as simple as cleaning out your cabinets.
And that’s exactly what celebrities Christian Bautista, Kiko Rustia, Buhawi Meneses, Suzi Abrera, and Paolo Abrera did for Earth Day 2011. They raided their own closets and donated clothes, shoes, bags, and other personal items to Greenpeace for the Celebrity Ukay-Ukay (Rummage Sale) held at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Actress Angel Aquino attended the event and helped in selling and promoting the goods.
Sales were brisk, proving that one person’s unwanted clutter is indeed another’s treasure. Remaining items will once again be up for grabs in succeeding legs of the rummage sale.
But you don’t have to be a celebrity to do your part. Next time you feel the need to do little spring cleaning, why not mount your own ukay-ukay for Greenpeace?
And there are many other ways for you to help. To find out how you can take a more active role in saving the one earth we all share, click here.
