MANILA, Philippines – Here’s another way of atoning for one’s sins aside from self-flagellation and crucifixion: observe the Holy Week entirely “green” and free from trash.

Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez posed this challenge to penitents as he echoed calls of an environmental group, EcoWaste Coalition, for a greener Holy Week, shunning practices that would involve wasteful consumption of natural resources.
