A video made by an Australian tourist shows a manta ray feeding among pieces of trash at Manta Point in Bali, Indonesia. The disturbing footage went viral on social media.
Plastic trash increasingly pollutes rivers and fills landfills. In Jakarta, two men are on a mission to offer alternatives that could have an impact on the environment and the economy, not just in Indonesia.
With its stunning beaches, the Indonesian island of Bali draws tourists from around the world. But plastics are spoiling the view, spurring locals to take action — from production to disposal.
Big companies including Coca-Cola and Danone have signed a new global commitment to tackle the plastic waste problem. Mere greenwashing, or can such pledges make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution?
At least 14 people have died on the island, with a large number of buildings destroyed. The island is popular with tourists.
