Ben&Ben Becomes National Geographic Asia Ambassador For #PlanetOrPlastic
BEN&BEN – One of the most popular Indie bands in the Philippines had just announced that they have been tapped by National Geographic Asia to become their #PlanetOrPlastic Embassadors.
The band was recognized for fighting plastic and waste pollution. Along with this, they recently did a live performance on a boat ride in Pasig River.
They did it to promote its rehabilitation and protection. Also, the nine-member banned has pledged to cut down on their use of sing-use plastics in their tours.
Taking it one step further, the band also pledged to use plastic-free instruments. They hope to influence their fans and the entire Philippines about the importance of environmental conservation.
The band performed at National Geographic’s Evening of Exploration in Singapore. There they explained that they had grown up knowing that Pasig had no life.
They recalled that they wanted to do something about it. Their vocalist Miguel Benjamin said that it was small actions done every day that led to the death of the river.
However, he emphasized that it’s also those little things collectively, every day, that can bring it back to life. Which is indicative of the effects we could do if we all help out even just a little.
The fight against plastic pollution is one of the most important battles in our generation. Every day, billions of tons of plastic are used and thrown irresponsibly, causing damage to our environment.
With this in mind, Ben&Ben hopes to become an inspiration to all Filipinos to take a stand against plastic pollution. They said that they hope fans can support us and this cause and that they’re excited to be part of a bigger movement to save the earth.
