These small steps toward sustainability include picking up any trash one sees both at home and at tourist spots, respecting any locals and the heritage sites, being open, warm, and welcoming to Filipino and foreign tourists, opting for reusable instead of disposable items, biking and walking more, using less electricity, and more.

“Every little act we and our fellow Filipinos do goes a long way in making sure the beauty of the Philippines lasts forever, and we are extremely blessed that our local celebrities are with us in our vision,” said DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat. “There are no better people to help enlighten our countrymen about what they can do than the personalities they look up to.”

SOS is part of DOT’s overarching campaign for sustainability in the country, called “More Fun Forever”, which aims to inspire tourists, businesses, and local communities to have a long-term view on tourism by protecting destinations and our natural resources. SOS specifically focuses on educating tourists on how to be better travelers.
