Indonesia's famous Pink Beach covered in rubbish

They took a photo of themselves lying on this beautiful pink beach in Indonesia. One year later, these instagrammers went back to the same spot. This is what they saw.

    How about starting to pick up some of the trash? You could be part of the solution.

    showing the problem and then cleaning up the beach would help.

    Welcome to planet earth. The land where nothing is perfect or maintained without mankind. The grass also doesn’t cut itself.

    All this garbage travels from different places, the currents, wind, tides or swells can push them to the shore, yes Indonesia is responsabile for most of this garbage but also some come from far away, the idea of mass consumism in to development countries never was planned, they are doing the same like any western country did few years ago, but with a big population of 260 millons of people, can you imagine all this people consuming like an american? We are in a big trouble

    Blame the fuckers that are dumping the stuff ...... the Indonesians! And how much of this is accentuated by the two pics being after two totally different tide situations, as there is one hell of a lot of tidal wood there! Every story can be manipulated to give the impression that one wants. We all know that plastic is not the problem, humans are the problem!

    Flying around the world and pollution it while portraying a carefree life sorts of messes up the message . I call them out as being hypocrites.

    They have had massive Hurricanes, Tidal Waves, Earth Quakes, deaths and of course they pollute but don't find ways to clean up debris and recycle plastics they produce. It's sad!

    So instead of just posting pics to trashed areas why ask for before and after clean up pics?it doesnt take alot of people to make a difference

    The creation of single-use plastic and plastic in general by companies in Asia even around the world is massive. Now, if that isn't addressed and no one holds these companies accountable, let's face it, cleanup efforts will barely make a dent on the issue. Everyone should be responsible. Like trying to refuse straws in restaurants and controlling one's use of plastic, using eco bags instead of plastic bags to groceries, taking your own tumblers, food containers what not, helping out with cleaning efforts etc. It may not be enough but it all starts with all of us. I mean let's all face it, most of these instagrammers want likes and popularity and trying to live their lives. Maybe next time, avoid posting the name of the places and answering questions as to where these places are so that they do not become popular is what they should do?

    Clean the mess up then -we all live in the cesspit we help create. Rubbish travels from Canada, US and Europe. As so are they. Where ever you go you are part of the problem if you fly or use a car. We will have to all consider the future each and everyone if we want to keep the earth a clean living planet.
