City of Dreams Manila's Security Operations team leads coastal cleanup activity along Manila bay

City of Dreams Manila’s security personnel volunteered for the coastal cleanup of Manila bay

City of Dreams Manila focuses on environmental conservation in its employee volunteer program, as it undertakes coastal cleanup of Manila Bay with various organizations, such as the Philippine Coast Guard.

Over a 100 volunteers from its Security Operations team recently partnered with about 70 coast guards of the 107th squadron of the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) and initiated a coastal cleanup activity along Manila Bay area, clearing debris and rubbish. Starting from early morning, the volunteers covered a shore-to-bay distance of roughly ten meters by a shoreline distance of close to 100 meters. The efforts yielded hundreds of kilos of rubbish which were moved off the water’s edge and later on collected by the local city government.

They will again participate in the Annual International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) program at the Manila Bay area on September 17 spearheaded by the International Coastal Cleanup Philippines.

In last year’s ICC activity, more than 60 volunteer employees from various units of City of Dreams Manila participated in clearing garbage from the coastal area fronting the Senate Building in Jose Diokno and Diosdado Macapagal avenues in Pasay.

Manila Bay is one of the targeted coastal cleanup sites in the country, which runs through the Philippines’ capital and neighboring cities with a total shoreline distance of 190 kilometers. Industrialization and a constant rise in population surrounding the bay have largely contributed to the deterioration of its water quality and waste matter content, and several local and international environmental groups have dedicated their efforts in rehabilitating and restoring life to the bay’s coastal and marine habitats. ICC continues to raise environmental awareness and provide information gathered from the collected trash; to guide and influence governments, corporations and industries, in developing smart solutions addressing marine debris problem.

In keeping with their continuing commitment to the property’s corporate social responsibility program, more volunteers from City of Dreams Manila are anticipated to take part in this year’s ICC activity together with private and public sector volunteers. Besides the coastal cleanup, employees of City of Dreams Manila are also currently engaged in a tree-planting program in Caluan Laguna, in coordination with DENR in support of environmental conservation.
