Greenpeace Southeast Asia campaigner Sonny Batungbacal on Thursday pointed out that pouring white sand does not resolve the pollution in the bay.

Greenpeace Southeast Asia campaigner Sonny Batungbacal said environmental laws should be fully implemented to help Manila Bay recover from pollution.

He noted that it would take time to recover considering its size and the 17 principal rivers draining to it.

“If the intention of the ‘white sand reclamation’ is to cover up the existing pollution, time would tell when pollutants would leak,” Batungbacal said.

“This is an aesthetic solution and does not solve pollution at the source,” he added.
