A day after the reopening of Boracay, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) lamented that trash was found again at a beach there.

The DENR tweeted a photo showing plastic bottles found in one of the crevice of the rock formation in Station 1 of Boracay.


“LOOK: A day after the #BoracayReopening, we retrieved this trash in one crevice alone of the rock formation in Station 1 of Boracay. Is this #responsibletourism?” the department said in its caption.

The world-famous island reopened on Wednesday, Oct. 26, after six month of rehabilitation initiated by the government.

The closure came after President Rodrigo Duterte branded Boracay as a “cesspool.”

The DENR then urged the public to keep the island “clean” and “pristine.”

“Let’s all work together to keep Boracay clean and pristine! PLEASE RETWEET. #BetterBoracay,” it concluded. /atm
