This is a great event to deliver the message of environment preservation for our Mother Earth. But they should also make initiatives to implement some city ordinances when it comes to burning plastic material. Here near my apartment, I frequently smell plastic whenever neighbors burn their trashes.

You've got a Point Noy, Local government especially in the barangay level can also do the work. And on top of it are the people living in the area.
