Trash Talk is an avenue to stir up conversations on waste management issues in the Philippines. Its primary aim is to complement the efforts to educate millennials and some institutions on the hidden truth of waste management issues in the Philippines, the Manila Bay issue and foresight of possible new problems that will arise in the area; and the innovations and initiatives of individuals and private sectors who fight against the waste crisis. The activity is a post-Global Climate Strike Week event and geared towards the 50th year celebration of Earth Day.
