Cimatu has done right for Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
I really don’t know why there is a controversy over the use of Dolomite grains, which come from Alcoy, Cebu. That company that creates these Dolomites have been there for over 20 years already. When our biker groups go on a short ride to Alcoy, we already know we’ve arrived when we reach the Dolomite plant. Mind you, more than 20 years ago, the high-end resorts in Mactan have been accused of hauling white sand from the sandbars between Cebu and Bohol (which was probably true at that time). However, when the Dolomite plant became operational, many resorts got their white sand from Alcoy and that controversy died down.
