As a solid manifestation of corporate social responsibility, MBC volunteers have joined their counterparts from other establishments based along Roxas Boulevard for Land Bank’s Manila Bay Clean-Up Program since 2009.
Aiming to help implement a sustainable approach to cleaning and protecting marine and coastal resources, MBC also sponsored the construction and installation of a trash rack that will block solid wastes passing through the Vito Cruz area.
Land Bank’s program also features the procurement of a garbage boat that will move daily to gather debris along the bay area from the Philippine Navy/Manila Yacht Club Basin to Manila Ocean Park.
While these initiatives will not totally solve environmental sanitation problems in the country’s premier international gateway, reduction of rubbish will help minimize pollutants, which will have an impact in the long run.
