Thus said Zamboanga del Norte Gov. Roberto Y. Uy in his message during the coastal clean-up drive and mangrove planting at Barangay Tabon, a  coastal villagein the municipality of Jose Dalman on Wednesday.

Uy urged residents to discipline themselves and refrain from throwing garbages and waste to the sea.
