A plea from Darren Criss




FILIPINO-American actor Darren Criss wants proper waste management implemented in the country.

The awarded actor opened up on the topic via Instagram recently.

“So let’s talk about waste management,” he wrote in the caption of a photo showing him practicing the same.

“Yeah, I know, it’s not a very sexy topic- but that’s exactly why it’s such a massive issue in so many parts of the world.”

He then related what he learned during his recent visit here.

“So I decided to take a trip to the Philippines, a country close to my heart, with my friends from @glblctzn to learn specifically about metro Manila’s waste and sustainability challenges,” he said.

Criss, whose mother is Filipino, was referring to Global Citizen, an international organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty by 2030.

He shared how he met a lot of inspiring Pinoys who “have made incredible strides towards creating a cleaner, greener future, but the obstacles they face are still overwhelming.”

He urged Filipino mayors to “implement zero waste programs in their cities in partnership with their communities.” (RAMPADOR ALINDOG)
