The amended Municipal Ordinance 310 published in the local paper to promote the preservation of Boracay’s famous powdery white sand from blatant extraction. Sand extraction may it handful has greatly diminished the beach beauty and causing the slow degradation of Boracay.

On a brighther side. I met this Japanese-English guy who got this portable ash tray or cigarette butt holder. I never seen such great invention ever. Be a responsible smoker! Don’t litter your cigarette butts.
