BACIWA Joins International Coastal Clean-Up

Employees fish out huge piles of trash near the squatter area

BACIWA joined other stakeholders in celebrating the annual International Coastal Clean-Up Day  with the theme, “Together for Our Ocean” in Barangay Punta Taytay last September 16, 2017.

Now on its 32nd year, the International Clean-Up (ICC) is the largest volunteer effort for the ocean and waterways initiated by the Ocean Conservancy, a non-government organization based in Washington D.C.  ICC is unique from other Clean-Ups because aside from removing trash/debris from beaches, and waterways, volunteers are required to collect data to help the organization find better solutions to the marine debris problem.
