MANILA—Even as she basked in sunny Siargao, Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt couldn't help but pick up the trash all over the place.
In an Instagram story posted on Merritt's account, the model could be seen walking in the beach and picking up water bottles along the way.
Evidently dismayed, she wrote on the caption: "People need to stop throwing plastic/trash in the islands they visit."
Merritt is also an advocate of sustainable, zero-waste lifestyle.
Her Instagram has a highlight reel containing videos of her unboxing waste-free products, and screenshots of news articles on trash-related pollution.
