We’re all happy that Filipino-American actor Darren Criss visited the Philippines last week. Aside from spending some quality time with his wife Mia Swier in El Nido, Criss also shared that he learned a lot about the country’s waste and sustainability management during his visit.

On Instagram, the Hollywood actor posted a photo of him taking part in segregating waste and said that he decided to take the trip specifically to learn about “Metro Manila’s waste and sustainability challenges.”

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

He also urged mayors and other local government units to implement zero waste programs in their respective cities.

“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,” he added.

The 32-year-old star is working with Global Citizen, an international organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty by 2030, in this campaign. If you want to sign the petition and to know more about it, click the link here.
