Governor Takes on #TrashTag Challenge
Governor Accepts Speaker Muña-Barnes’ Challenge to Clean our Island
Hagåtña, Guam – Challenge accepted! The Maga’Håga will be leading an effort to pick up
trash at Adelup Beach on Saturday, April 27 from 7-9 a.m. as part of the viral #TrashTag
“As beautiful as Guam is, there’s no denying that illegal dumping and littering has
become a problem in many parts of our island. Together with the Department of
Parks and Recreation, Department of Public Works, Island Beautification Task Force,
Guam Visitors Bureau, and Senator Kelly Marsh Taitano, we did an islandwide tour
of parks and what we found was shocking. We know there is a need to focus efforts
on protecting our environment and cleaning up our public parks and beaches. I hope
that this trend of volunteer trash pickup and islandwide cleanup will continue,” said
Governor Leon Guerrero. “Our staff at Adelup will be joining me to clean up Adelup
Beach, a challenge that I am glad was sent my way by Speaker Muña-Barnes.”
100 Tree Challenge
Our commitment to the environment is not just in cleaning up our island, but in planting
trees as well. Lieutenant Governor Joshua Tenorio recently launched his
#100treechallengeguam. The community is encouraged to plant a tree, take a photo or
video, and use the hashtag. Trees fight climate change, clean the air and help you breathe,
and prevent soil erosion.
