As humans, we always find a way to adapt and survive. Watching this video made me curious about “pagpag”. and a bit queasy. It’s a shame that people have to resort to eating other people’s waste.
Ever wonder what happens to restaurant leftovers? In the Philippine capital, Manila, meat is recycled from landfill tips, washed and re-cooked. It’s called “pagpag” and it’s eaten by the poorest people who can’t afford to buy fresh meat.
