Globe launches long-term conservation plan for Boracay

Globe Telecom has launched its long-term conservation and sustainability plan for Boracay, starting with its initiatives to help address untreated sewage that is causing pollution into the waters of the island.

Globe executives recently signed a memorandum of agreement with key leaders from Manila Water Foundation and Boracay Island Water Company (Boracay Water) for the donation of a communal septic tank in Sitio Ilaya, Balabag, Boracay Island, Malay, Aklan. 

Globe and its partners will also provide 8,000 packs of Vigormin – a low-cost, organic solution to boost the removal rate of organic pollutants in septic tanks for improved quality of used water –– to more than 4,000 households in Boracay. 

“I am very happy Globe came to us and asked what we can do. Because of our ties with Globe and Boracay Water, we sat down one afternoon and shared some ideas. In Boracay, there are low-lying areas that sewer lines cannot reach,” Manila Water Foundation President Geodino Carpio said. “This initiative will help ensure homeowners and tourists in Boracay will have a safe and decent place to stay in.”
