Helping hands…Cebu furniture firms donate sawdust

September 20, 2006

As part of its corporate social responsibility, the member companies of the Cebu Furniture Industries Foundation Inc. (CFIF), through its Sugbu Tabang Guimaras project, donated more than five truckloads of sawdust for the ongoing cleanup operations in Guimaras Island.

Aside from the sawdust, drums, masks and jute sacks were also donated by the said member-companies, which include Global Classic Designs Inc., Giadrini Del Sole Mftg. and Trading Corp., Casa Cebuana Inc. and PEBA Trading, Cebu Natura Craft, Diamond Care, Stonesets Int’l. Inc., D & D Export and Maitland Smith.

The M/T Solar I carrying two million liters of bunker fuel sunk off Guimaras Island on August 11, resulting to the oil spill and the damage of about 220 kilometers of Guimaras coastline, including 450 hectares of mangroves and 116 hectares of seaweed plantations.
