Today, it is one place in the country that we cannot even boast about. The island was closed for cleanup and rehabilitation last April 2018 for a period of six months after it was described as a “cesspool” by President Duterte. The growth of coliform bacteria, resulting from the failure of business establishments to install the required septic and sewerage systems, has plagued the area for years.

Reports say that only half of the hotels and restaurants on the island, and one-fourth of the households in 2003, had pipelines connected to the centralized sewage treatment plant. After the closure, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources discovered some 200 establishments out of over a thousand businesses in violation of environmental laws and regulations.

We can't be assured as of now by the actions executed by the government. It is in our hands to discipline others, make people be aware of this issue and sympathize of what can the improper waste disposal and such bring macro effects to Boracay Island.

Simple things make a big difference. By helping Boracay restore its beauty, we can make actions via social media to spread awareness to netizens and to fellow Filipinos to make a change for the better of this society. 

As Gen-Z of this generation, we can make social media a powerful tool for change. A change that will make Boracay restore its beauty again and show the paradise that many Filipinos dream of.
