Greenpeace Southeast Asia


About this blog

Why do you blog?

Indeed why does one blog?

I believe we blog because we long to have extensions of ourselves. We blog because we have stories to tell. The same could be said of Greenpeace, because more than an environmental organization Greenpeace is a movement that’s made up of individuals who believe that: “When the last tree is cut, the last river poisoned, and the last fish dead, we will discover that we can’t eat money…”

That basically sums up why we exists as individuals who take the issue of the environment as a personal matter. Because behind the non-violent direct actions, the lobbying and the research work that we do, we are just a ragtag group of ecologists, visionaries, activists, parents, internet junkies, outdoor enthusiasts and ordinary folks who have been captured by the North American Cree Indian legend, that described a time when humanity’s greed has made the Earth sick. At that time, a tribe of people known as the Warriors of the Rainbow would rise up to defend her.

This blog hopes to tell the story of the people that makes up Greenpeace, manifesting our  hopes, struggles and victories in this miniscule space in the World Wide Web, screaming at the nothingness and pondering the meaning of living life for what the late Oscar Romero calls, ‘a future not our own’.

We invite you to jump onboard our virtual Rainbow Warrior as we chart our journey as a collective of kindred souls that acts to change attitudes and behavior, to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace.

I totally agree with what Greenpeace is doing! I am a Pollution Control Officer of our company, Sardido Industries, Inc., an environmental management company, with an ECC for Treatment and Storage for Hazardous Wastes. Aside from being a Transporter of Hazardous Wastes and exporter of e-wastes, our company is a treater of busted fluorescent lamps and integrated circuits (IC). Our company is also a distributor in the Philippines of recycling equipment made by Air Cycle Corporation of the US, particularly bulb eater machine. I do also environmental consultance work with some companies inside export processing zones in the Philippines.

I am quite glad to occasionally visit this virtual Rainbow Warrior, as you call it, but must admit I cannot always make (or remember to make) the intentional daily effort to come onboard, which is to say, visit the site. Which is why I’ve been looking for its article-RSS feed, so I can know when something new is on the site. Uhm… I’m afraid I can’t find it.

May I speak on behalf of the RSS users among us and request either that a) the link to the feed be made more prominent, if it exists; or if not, that b) that we might find a way to have one?

Thanks.😀

Got it!

Also, just signed up via your kiosk at Greenbelt 5. The prospect of being more involved with Greenpeace is… Interesting. Thank you for this page and for the many other means by which Greenpeace keeps the conversation about environmental protection going.

Hello,
thanks for this however i don’t understand what do you want us to do about it. as it is not our job to reprimand people with manners, as we function to expose and stop environmental crime as it happens. by any chance is he in the act of perpetrating an environmental crime? and also if its a url from a sticker attached to his vehicle doesn’t really represent him as a part of our organization especially since the url you wrote isn’t our website ours is http://www.greenpeace.org.ph. when you speak of him being unprofessional what exactly do you mean by that?

Hi,

I made a blog a couple of months ago not aware that Greenpeace has its presence here in the Philippines.

Seeing and hearing a lot about the “Climate Change”, I’m beginning to have a high interest in fighting Global Warming.

I’m planning to look for more ideas to add information or post as an update to this blog. So its very timely to be connected to Greenpeace at least data are based on Philippine settings.

Thanks,

Danny Didulo
