Philippine village swaps plastic trash for rice

Bayanan village in the Philippines is trying to tackle the scourge of plastic waste by offering rice to residents in exchange for their trash. Villagers can get 1kg (2.2lbs) of rice for every 2kg (4.4lbs) of plastic waste, which is handed over to the government for proper disposal or recycling.
