The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) will organize its first ever “Zero Graffiti” around the city on Saturday, April 22.
According to KBP Chairman Rene Sales, the activity is one way of helping the city.
“Kailangan ma-involve talaga ‘yung mga barangay,” Sales mentioned. He also stated that the activity is in accordance with the city’s anti-graffiti ordinance.
He also added that prior to the activity, the organization sought the city mayor’s office for the activity’s approval and different companies and groups as sponsors for the event.
Sales said it is the homeowners’ responsibility to keep track of the cleanliness of their own area and that the activity’s aim is to start at some point in order to help the barangay.
The activity is relevant to the yearly Cleanest and Greenest Barangay contest of the city.
On post-activity monitoring, Sales said that supermarkets and department stores should not sell spray paints to minors, which is an existing city ordinance.
The one-day activity will be participated in by the nine-member media stations of the KBP. They will also be deploying newscasters to different barangays to make sure that the project goes smoothly.
The activity was launched in the first week of March.
