Business tycoons Ramon Ang and Lucio Tan will help cleaning major rivers in Metro Manila

It looks like the battle to have a better and cleaner environment has become widespread.

Just recently, there were reports that Manila Bay was finally cleaned of the trashed that plagued the area for many years. However, the cleaning of the area is incomplete. While it has become relatively cleaner, more effort needs to be put towards its complete cleaning.

Growing team to clean Manila Bay

Along this fight for a cleaner Manila Bay, business tycoons Ramon Ang and Lucio Tan have committed to helping in cleaning not just Manila Bay, but other major rivers in Metro Manila.

According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the two business men have said that they want to contribute to the immediate rehabilitation of these areas.

Taking responsibility

San Miguel Corporation owned by Ang has even committed to taking responsibility in cleaning the Tullahan River.

DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu has also expressed that they are immensely happy that the private sector has taken part in this initiative.

The Tullahan river reaches about 15 kilometers from the La Mesa Water Reservoir in Quezon City all the way to Malabon, Valenzuela, going to Manila Bay in Navotas City.

Lucio Tan who owns the Philippine Airlines also said that he wishes to help in cleaning the river. DENR has said that they will choose the river Tan’s company will help to clean.
