The municipality of Naic began using a Japanese technology known as ‘bokashi balls’ to clean the town’s rivers and streams during the kick-off ceremony of their bio remediation project on Wednesday, February 8.
With the use of these bokashi balls, also known as “mabuhay balls,” the LGU aims to rehabilitate and develop the wetlands in Naic.
A bokashi ball is a fist-sized technology made up of all-organic materials like fermented clay soil and some minerals that have an effective microorganism solution to break down toxins in the water.
Mayor Raffy Dualan led the ceremony, together with the members of the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Organization (MENRO) and representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
Dualan hopes that this project will encourage their constituents to work together, be disciplined, and protect the environment.
