MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) urged the public to stop throwing trash into waterways to address the growing problem of marine pollution. The appeal was made as the DENR led another successful cleanup of Manila Bay and its tributaries on Saturday last week during the local observance of the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Day 2019. Thousands turned up in various cleanup sites around Manila Bay region for this year’s ICC event dubbed as “Battle for Trash-Free Manila Bay.” According to DENR secretary Roy Cimatu, all cleanup efforts will be in vain if the public continue dumping trash out of habit.
