MetadataShow full item record
In the past few days, news about the successful cleanup of Manila Bay is all over the press and social media. After the government inter-agency and volunteers' cleanup last Sunday, photos of what appeared to be Manila Bay's beachfront emerged, showing a clean slate so strikingly different from its previous filthy condition. Prior to Manila Bay, a lot of people are not aware that a major transformation has already happened with another major body of water in Metro Manila, the Pasig River.
