Darren Criss appeals to Manila mayors to implement better zero waste programs

One would think that after winning a Golden Globe for his stellar performance as Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: An American Crime Story” actor Darren Criss would refuse to get down and dirty on the issue of trash.

Not only did the actor visit the Philippines, a country close to his heart because of his Filipina mom but he also used his time to sort through an MRF facility with the locals and tried to learn more about the waste and sustainability challenges being experienced by Filipinos.

It looks like Malabon Mayor Len Len Oreta was already one of the first to respond because Criss made a special shoutout to him on his post.

“I met a lot of inspiring people who have made incredible strides towards creating a cleaner, greener future, but the obstacles they face are still overwhelming.

I’m urging mayors in the Philippines to implement zero waste programs in their cities in partnership with their communities. A huge thanks to Mayor @lenlenoreta, who I met just last week, for committing already- now we need more Mayors to do the same,” the actor said.

Thanks for caring and using your celebrity to promote awareness on sustainability, Darren. (ANGEL ONG)

So let’s talk about waste management. 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. 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. I met a lot of inspiring people who have made incredible strides towards creating a cleaner, greener future, but the obstacles they face are still overwhelming. I’m urging mayors in the Philippines to implement zero waste programs in their cities in partnership with their communities. A huge thanks to Mayor @lenlenoreta, who I met just last week, for committing already- now we need more Mayors to do the same. Join me and take action. (link in bio) Mabuhay!
