Former Eat Bulaga Eat Bulaga host Jimmy Santos decided to make ways to earn some money during his visit to Canada.
In his vlog, Jimmy who’s having a vacation in Calgary can be seen pushing the used bottles he collected to a bottle depot to exchange them for some money.
According to him, he does not want to waste the used bottles because he could still earn money by selling them.
Aside from selling it, he also contributed to the environment by helping the used bottles to be recycled.
“May deposito ito na 10 cents para sa ganoon maobliga kayo na ibalik ito para maibenta at ma-recycle,” Jimmy said.
In the process, Jimmy can be seen putting the used bottles on a sorting table where some employees of the bottle depot can be seen checking the items he wanted to exchange for money.
After the process, Jimmy received a receipt that he needed to be scanned to a machine that dispensed his payment.
He received 15 Canadian Dollars or P615 for the bottles he exchanged.
“Malaking bagay ‘yan,” Jimmy said.
Meanwhile, netizens praised Jimmy for being resourceful while having a vacation.
“Hanga ako sa iyo Jimmy, kay sipag mo at hindi maarte. Marangal iyang trabaho mo at hindi ka dapat mahiya. You’re an inspirational person. Sana ay maging isang Canadian ka, napakaswerte mo kung sakaling maging isa ka. Continue that job kung may oras ka, kasi hindi nman mahirap. Ako ay isang tagahanga mo noong nasa Pinas ka pa at hanggang ngayon.” netizen Nene said.
