International Coastal Cleanup 2015

As much as 28 billion pounds of plastic enter the ocean every year and this figure could double within the next decade according to Ocean Conservancy.

The team of El Nido Resorts, being the leading advocate for responsible tourism in the Philippines, is at their best in keeping plastics away from the ocean and waterways. Aside from their consistent efforts in cleaning up El Nido’s islands every other week, they have joined the rest of the world for the annual International Coastal Clean-Up last September 19, 2015.

Despite the heat, members of the local government unit, community locals, El Nido Resorts guests and collegiate volleyball superstars Gretchen Ho and Alexa Micek took time from their busy schedule to take part in this activity.

If you’re thinking of a destination for next year’s International Coastal Clean-Up, we suggest you make it El Nido Resorts. We promise fun time with locals and great food!
