How do we protect the island’s sand?

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.

However, the efforts would be useless if the sand was used as fire extinguisher in the ash trays as in the photo below.
