Cleanup initiatives for Pasig River and Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
While coastal cleanups are considered band-aid solutions in reviving bodies of water, these are still deemed as prerequisites in raising awareness on the importance of restoring our rivers and bays.That is why private firms and government agencies have launched various cleanup drives for major bodies of water, especially in the country’s capital. One such example is Pasig River, which used to be an important transportation route and water source in Metro Manila.
