Young people these days are incredibly socially engaged. They’re inciting worldwide movements against global warming and cleaning up garbage for fun.
Case in point: Miss Bohol 2019 Celina Villoceno.
On Sunday, Villoceno shared before/after photos of her cleanup at the St. Joseph Cemetery in Barangay Dampas.
“It’s not my trash, but it’s my planet,” she captioned her photos.
The beauty queen accepted the #trashtag challenge after she was nominated by a friend.
She also challenged other Mutya (sa Tagbilaran) to take the challenge.
“I challenge my mutya sisters to do the same Alkalee Pernia Bangalao Andrhea Lanit Angel Ann L Calimbayan Chariz Maricar Echavez Dennissa Lorelle Owen Fretzie Joyce Astronomo Gypsy Jhaira Balahay Irah Farinas Irish Cruz Kristine Duterte Kyle Bustamante II Maria Carla Telmo Sheila Fraser Zandra Genieve.”
She used the hashtags, #challengeforchange, #trashtagchallenge, #ParaSaTagbilaran.”
The TrashTag campaign started in 2015, when UCO, an outdoor gear company, launched a project to encourage people to delitter their environments. Byron Román shared on his Facebook page a photo set featuring Algerian ecologist and activist Drici Tani Younes. Román’s post urged teens to take part in the TrashTag Challenge.
