Proper trash disposal seems like a concept too easy until actually put into practice. Less than two weeks ago, Solenn Heussaff lamented the trash in the streets she saw one Tuesday morning, remarking why people cannot dispose of their trash properly when it’s something so simple.

It seems Heussaff is back at it again as she took to her Twitter page yesterday, June 3, to share a picture of what seemed to be a beach shore littered with plastic bottles and bags. Although she did not say where the picture was taken, Heussaff did not mince her words over the pitiful sight.

“Bravo pinoys! Dispose of your trash where it belongs,” wrote Heussaff. “Not in the ocean, or street, or out your car windows. If floods come into your home this rainy season, remember that YOU asked for it.”

Many netizens echoed Heussaff’s sentiments as her tweet racked up a thousands of likes and retweets. One netizen, Xeph (@akosixeph) replied to her tweet yesterday, saying, “Seeing sh*it like this makes me doubt humanity more. Can we really collectively work to save [our] planet? Still hoping for the best though.”

Heussaff replied to the netizen, writing, “Yes we can. But [everyone] needs to [start] already [and] stop [thinking] people will pick up behind them.”

In another tweet an hour later, Heussaff added that “every year natural disasters are worse than the last.”

“I don’t remember so many back in grade school. And these are partly OUR fault. Everyone needs to wake up and start doing things or our kids wont see the beautiful things we know. We need CHANGE NOW. Stop taking things for granted.”

A certain Nicole Francisco agreed with Heussaff, hoping that environmental protection would be her advocacy. “I hope maging advocacy mo eto, it would be a big help if a known artist ang nagsasalita… Simple and basic things pero parang tini-take for granted na nagiging problema na. I’m also disappointed pag me nakikita din basura.”

(I hope this becomes your advocacy. It would be a big help if a known artist speaks up. These are simple and basic things, but seemingly taken for granted, and becomes a problem. I’m also disappointed when I see trash.)

Many celebrities and personalities have been using their influence to speak up about the causes they hold dear. Jericho Rosales was also distressed over trash in Siargao beach, while actress Iza Calzado called for proper trash disposal when her dog died after accidentally eating plastic. JB
