MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is heartening to know that our senator friends are also doing some real  work other than just holding Senate hearings and inquiries week after week.

Today, Senators Antonio Trillanes, Leila De Lima, Bam Aquino and Risa Hontiveros filed a joint resolution authorizing the Department of Trade and Industryt (DTI) to export Philippine garbage to Sweden.

The senators drafted the resolution immediately after learning that Sweden has run out of rubbish for its efficient recycling program.  The European country is now importing garbage in order to keep its recycling machines in continuous operation.

Trillanes told The Adobo Chronicles that their resolution could spell economic progress for the Philippines while keeping the country clean and garbage-free.

If that happens, it is going to be really more fun in the Philippines!
