In a previous interview, the group shared that the clean up drive was born out of their desire to help protect the environment.

“As responsible FMF mountaineers, we are always bound by the principles of “Leave No Trace” in every adventure we are in: be it camping, hiking, trekking, rock climbing, caving, or even as simple as a weekend beach getaway. The “Leave No Trace” principles have always guided us to minimize our footprint and prevent any adverse impact to any outdoor environment we have immersed ourselves. As we continuously explore the outdoors, our environmental awareness has exponentially grown as well,” said the FMF team, headed by Mr. Josafat Cariquitan, VP of FMF.

They invite volunteers to join their upcoming clean up at the Hatta Mountains this November. Interested individuals can register through the group’s social media pages.
