LOOK: Trash found again in Boracay after reopening
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
