Also present were: (from left) Los Banos Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer (CENRO) Emiliano Leviste, San Juan LGU Municipal ENR Officer Noelito M, Pasco, Laguna Provincial ENR Officer (PENRO) Eleazar Alaira, Batangas PENRO Jose Elmer Bascos and Rizal PENRO Isidro Mercado.

                Juan said the 500 desks were manufactured by the Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices in Laguna by using a special equipment to process some 15,000 board feet of 'confiscated lumber.' He said, "The donation is in line with DENR Secretary Ramon JP Paje's directive to utilize 'available confiscated timber without claimants and court cases' to be manufactured into school desks for distribution to recipient schools as identified by the Department of Education in the municipality."

                He added that the effort to prioritize the DepEd and other government agencies in the use of confiscated lumber is also following Presidential Executive Order No. 23.

 

 

                Laguna PENR Officer Eleazar Alaira narrated that wood were quality-processed, milled with the use of a Wood Mizer Mobile Sawmill secured from the Forest Products Research and Development Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FPRDI-DOST). He said the state-of-the-art equipment was installed at the regional impounding area at the DPWH Compound in Brgy. Bambang, Los Banos, Laguna.

                Alaira said "The chairs will be picked up by LGU-San Juan, any time from now. Target (of hauling) is before the school opens so that the students will have chairs to use when they report for classes."

                San Juan Mayor Manalo appreciated the DENR for the chairs and for Undersecretary Ernesto Adobo's help in the fruition of the donation. He said. "The donation of the chairs is right on time. This will help us and the DepEd. They are intended for use of the incoming senior high school students (Grade 11-12 of the K-12 educational schedule)."

                In response to the goodwill, Manalo revealed that San Juan has been supporting the DENR in its efforts to preserve the environment. He said students are required to plant trees before they graduate, couples, likewise, plant trees before they are wed. "We also regulated the use of plastics in our town, plastic garbage cause damage to the uplands, to our seas. San Juan is blessed with the mountains (kabundukan), lowland (kapatagan) and beautiful coastal areas and seas (karagatan), these we have to protect. Our town is an ecotourism destination. We have maintained ourcmangrove area, the biggest (in area) probably in Batangas. (siguro ito ang pinakamalapad sa buong Batangas)," he said.

                Juan reassured Manalo of the support and collaboration with the municipality particularly in its natural resources protection and conservation efforts.
