DENR considering Boracay single-use plastics ban
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is considering a ban on single-use plastics in Boracay after finding that the heavy use of such products played a role in the resort island’s environmental deterioration. Boracay island was ordered closed in late April for a six-month cleanup. Among the environmental issues the island faces is the lack of an effective solid waste management program, with the island generating an estimated 90 to 115 tons of garbage a day.
