IWIYW MUSIC CLIP PREMIERES ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL PHILIPPINES
WWF has teamed up with Discovery Channel in the Philippines to produce this catchy TVC, encouraging Filipinos to take part in our ongoing I Will If You Will campaign.
Featuring National Ambassadors Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez, the clip also includes IWIYW pledges from host of other Filipino journalists, actors and TV personalities.
It encourages low-carbon alternatives for people to adopt in their daily lives to go beyond the hour - using biodegradable shopping ecobags, low-volume water faucets, planting native trees, trash segregation, using the stairs over elevators, using LED lights, using processed hyacinth bags instead of plastic bags and walking instead of driving.
Parts of the clip were shot in Hamilo Coast, one of WWF's premier project sites in the Philippines. Together with a land developer and Local Government Units, WWF is rehabilitating once degraded reefs and mangrove areas around the Coast.
Nelson and Fernandez have since completed their IWIYW challenges, with Nelson scuba diving in a panda suit whilst munching on a carrot, and Fernandez running races for a month in the infamous panda suit. We'll be soon sharing clips of them completing their challenges.
The Philippines has been the number one country in terms of Earth Hour participation since 2009, with more than 1,671 cities and towns participating in the event this year.
Over the Earth Hour weekend, more than 200,000 people accepted IWIYW challenges from around the world. Next month, Miranda Kerr will be hosting a yoga class for more than 200 people in Sydney after 500 people uploaded their own IWIYW challenge to YouTube.com/EarthHour.
