Globe Telecom has partnered with Manila Water Foundation to launch a long-term conservation program in Boracay to address untreated sewage causing pollution in the waters of the island. Globe executives recently signed a memorandum of agreement with officials of Manila Water Foundation and Boracay Island Water Company for the donation of a communal septic tank in Sitio Ilaya, Balabag in Boracay Island. Globe and its partners will also provide 8,000 packs of Vigormin – a low-cost, organic solution to boost the removal rate of organic pollutants in septic tanks for improved quality of used water –– to more than 4,000 households in Boracay.
