Meant to be a Green alternative to Labor Day Weekend, the event was host to people from all walks of life who share a common love for the environment and a genuine concern with preserving The Philippines coastlines and oceans.  

SOS Coastival kicked off Ocean Month, in hopes of becoming an annual event that draws awareness to the state of The Philippines Coastal Environments.
