With the alarming buzz of Boracay establishments being closed down due to environmental violations and less-than manageable environmental problems, reports stipulate that Panglao Island is being eyed next, more specifically those fronting Alona Beach in Tawala.
The Department of Natural Resources organized a province-wide coastal clean-up encouraging all stakeholders to participate in pursuance to a cleaner coastal area. Over 600 pounds of rubbish were collected along the coast and in the waters of Danao Beach within a two-hour clean-up.
Shocking amount of nylon strings, styrofoams, hazardous metals and batteries, and glass bottles were among the few that was collected.
Among the stakeholders who joined were BE Grand Resort with 30 volunteers collecting and segregating each trash prior to collection of the local government with the rest of the Danao Beach Community Association and Plastic-Free Bohol group .
Although the coastal clean-up is not the first, this is definitely an extra push for the establishments and the community to help improve the cleanliness of Panglao Island before it turns into another “cesspool” as the President refers to with Boracay.
BE Resorts Group of Hotels is owned and managed by Cebu-based property developer Enrison Land, Inc. (ELI), a family-owned corporation that shares the values of Filipino excellence for global recognition. BE Resorts currently operates two hotels, namely BE Resort, Mactan and BE Grand Resort, Bohol.
