Riza, at 15 years of age, has been volunteering in addressing environmental issues in her community. She consistently reminds the people of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) because she believes that this is one way to reduce waste and raise awareness on environmental conservation. She also joined the Commission on Human Rights – Cordillera's initiatives in conducting community pantries at different places in Baguio City for five days. Riza always put into mind that a single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.

 JOHANA EUNICE B. ABELLANA
NOVALICHES, QUEZON CITY
 
Filipino resilience is often mentioned on live news telecasts and newspapers during typhoons, wars and conflicts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other disasters in the country. Johana, a senior high school student from Novaliches High School, realized that we have not become resilient in the face of disaster but we have become apathetic. More often than not, we just accept the status quo, thinking that we cannot do anything to change it.
 
To help improve and maintain our environment, Johana recycles used materials and joins tree planting activities. She further mentioned that giving women equal opportunities is vital so they can hone their capabilities.

Waste segregation at source programs, commonly applied in Cebu City, can be an important tool for community members to be at the forefront of disaster risk management. Waste management issues, including the threats of floods and landfill disasters, can only be addressed if the government and the community work together to make substantial efforts. To promote resilience and sustainability, solid wastes must be handled properly in order to minimize and eradicate its negative impacts on human health and the environment.
