That lightbulb moment came to me after a major corporate burn-out. I was on my extended sabbatical from city life and having lived in Boracay Island for six years, I had watched the island waste away. While it prospered from tourism, it also paid a price for its success. The beautiful island became over used and over polluted. It was then that I decided to do something. I started making cleaning solutions, which I then offered to hotels, restaurants and different establishments in hopes of lessening the chemicals that go down the island’s drain, and eventually out to sea. That’s what became Kalikhasan.
