Last October 2018, the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) received International Recognition for their efforts in reviving the Pasig River.
The Pasig River was declared biologically dead in the 90’s.
The International River Foundation noted the successful efforts led by the PRRC in reviving the once dead river.
Continuing their efforts of cleaning our waters, the river warriors led the BASECO Beach Clean-up last June 2019. This is in their efforts to save the Mangrove Nursery at the Baseco Beach.
In 9 days, they were able to gather 30,000 kilograms of garbage, which are mostly single-use plastics. The team worked even through the weekend to finish the big task at hand.
To cap their activity, the river warriors and their partners launched a tree planting activity around the Mangrove Nursery as the month of June 2019 ends.
