Xmas decors made of ‘recycled’ materials draw crowd in the Or. Mindoro capitol
CALAPAN CITY December 20 (PIA) – Numerous recycled and eye-catching Christmas decors displayed in front of the different offices at the provincial capitol complex of Oriental Mindoro are drawing large crowds here.
A gigantic snowman made of 1.5 liter plastic bottles in front of the capitol building stands out from all decors. Beside the snowman is a sky-towering Christmas tree made of the same materials.
On the other hand, the Technology and Livelihood Development Center (TLDC) displays in front of their office inside the capitol compound replicas of Santa Claus and his reindeers which are made of native materials. The Provincial Disaster Response Team (PDRT), for their part, shows its creativity through reindeers made of fire extinguishers and greetings shown in beautifully decorated life vests which are presented along the doorways of its office.
Meanwhile, the provincial office of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC), also inside the capitol, proves that the used and rust-filled ballot boxes are still usable when they were passionately arranged to build a Christmas tree.
The Provincial Youth Development Council (PYDC), on the one hand, uses a tarpaulin to present their Yuletide décor. At the same time, the Provincial Information Office (PIO) exhibits inventiveness as it used old compact discs to build its Christmas tree. The provincial government’s legal office (PLO) manifests thriftiness as they put on display their castle made of cartons.
Other current Christmas attractions inside the capitol complex here are those of the Public Employment Service Office (PESO), which dazzles with Christmas lights shaped into different Yuletide’s characters, while the Provincial General Services Office (PGSO) amazed spectators with a Christmas tree built from wrecked swivel chairs.( By JUANCHO R.
