MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Paper or plastic? If Senator Risa Hontiveros had her way, grocery and other shoppers will no longer have a choice. Plastic will forever be banned.
Hontiveros has filed a Senate Bill aimed at reducing the damaging effects of plastic on the environment.
But her bill goes beyond shopping.
Not only will store owners be banned from using plastic bags. Plastic surgeons will have to find alternative materials for their profession and business.
Hontiveros’ bill is very timely as it comes just days after Xander Ford made his big reveal on national television — a total facial makeover courtesy of an infamous plastic surgery clinic.
The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach Ford for comment on the proposed bill, but broadcast personality (and wife of defeated presidential candidate Mar Roxas) Korina Sanchez refused to give us Xander’s cell phone number.
Ford’s big reveal happened on Sanchez’s TV program, “Rated K” on the ABS-CBN Network.
