As many would post and campaign against improper garbage disposal, only a few would really do something about it.
One of whom is a foreign girl named Emilie. Her act of kindness went viral on Facebook as a netizen named John Mentel Espina posted how he saw her picking up trash at the streets of Bonifacio Global City.
He talked to her and immediately apologized about the mess and thanked her for what she’s doing.
“Agad agad, humingi ako ng tawad at sinabing nahihiya ako dahil sobrang kalat talaga dito sa Pilipinas. Nagpasalamat din ako sa ginagawa niya.”
Emilie just replied, “Well someone has to do and initiative, right?”
Espina expressed his surprise and wrote that he wanted to help her but he’s quite in a hurry. He just asked for permission to take a photo of her and post it on Facebook.
The netizen then said a short message to Emilie, apologizing as he was not able to help her.
“Sorry, Emily, I was not able to help you clean. 🙁 I am really ashamed of myself for not really stopping and help you pickup trash. But I promise that I will do my part as a Filipino citizen to throw my trash in the right place.”
He hoped that this will be an eye opener to everyone.
