“CLAYGO”, also known as “Clean As You Go,” is usually posted in places such as restaurants or cafeterias. This is the act of cleaning after yourselves after you finish eating your meal. This act is widely practiced all over the world however – it is even expected that this practice is already ingrained in you when you fo there – but it seems like this is something the Philippines still has to catch up on.
When Filipinos go out to eat, whether it may be in restaurants or in food courts, more often than not, recently used plates and utensils are seen scattered all over tabletops waiting to be picked up by the cleaning crew. Sometimes, food that fell on the ground or drinks that spilled all over the place can be seen as well.
For some reason, some Filipinos think that it is okay to leave your trash and your mess behind since some claim that “that is what the janitors and the cleaning crews are for” – but for almost the rest of the world, this is something that is simply unacceptable.
Filipinos who have visited places abroad can attest to this act and have tried to campaign for more people in the Philippines to practice CLAYGO since our own mess is our own responsibility after all. And one netizen that decided to speak up about it even posted a video that recently went viral.
A Facebook user posted a video of two Koreans cleaning after themselves after eating in Jollibee, a famous Filipino fast food chain in Caracar City, Cebu. In the video, it can be seen that the Koreans were stacking their used plates and utensils on a tray and bringing it to the designated station.
“Just saw two Koreans cleaning their mess before leaving. This should be an action worth following especially us Filipinos.” The netizen posted along with the viral video.
“Though this wasn’t my first time to witness Koreans cleaning up their mess, what amaze me the most is their obsession with cleanliness. On that day, there were three groups of Korean tourist dinning at the same time and after they are done, almost all of them did pick up their trash and throw it by themselves.
Perhaps, we think that doing it alone can’t contribute a big impact to others, but as what we’ve witness with our friends from Korea, if we do it together we can do so much more.” the netizen added on his post.
To add more context to his post, the owner of the video decided to add a brief message on the comments section further explaining why he posted it.
“Hello. The sole purpose of the said video was to show us Filipinos how Koreans act in any restaurant. Though I didn’t mentioned the name of the said Koreans for the fact that they have the right to privacy, I believe that the common goal of the 21 seconds clip was to show Filipinos that like other nations, these little act can make a change. Thank you.” he added.
