Employees of Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of Caltex fuels and lubricants, teamed up with over 200 townsfolk and local government officials of San Pascual, Batangas to fill more than 400 trash bags which amounted to 1.47 tons of rubbish during the coastal cleanup or day four of CPI’s annual Volunteer Week activity.
