Manila Bay post-cleanup drive is majestic AF

ICYMI, Manila Bay just underwent a massive cleanup drive last Sunday.

A combined total of around 5,000 government employees and volunteers managed to haul more than 40 tons of garbage (equivalent to 11 trucks) in an effort to return the Bay to its former glory.

And while the rehab process for the 190 km coastline is far from over (it will take roughly 7 years for the Bay to recover), netizens have managed to capture the program’s progress, and the results, so far, have been absolutely amazing.

Take a look at the shots below:

Aside from the cleanup drive, a couple of changes has the pvblic optimistic about the future of Manila Bay. Just recently, Manila Zoo and other establishments that were tagged as Bay pollutants have been either shut down or fined.

Meanwhile, the DILG has required LGUs and barangays to conduct clean-up drives at least once a week, which began last January 27.
