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.

    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

    Stay away from this country. Don’t spend your money there don’t waste your time on the planes the fuel for the boat don’t waste your money on a country like this vacation someplace else. What kind of people don’t do anything to try to stop this atrocity

    How hard is it to expedite water purification process in water underwater creating clarity enough to see the bottom example think like fish aquarium only on the largest scale scrubbing contamination extraction of debris!

    Here's a fun fact majority of plastic in ocean comes from Asia and Indonesia, so I'm not surprised

    I guess that the tsunami that hit Indonesia in 2018 had absolutely noting to do with that. The pictures state 2019.. https://m.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/breaking-75-magnitude-earthquake-rattles-indonesia-promoting-tsunami-warning/70006199

    We will destroy all of our beaches around the world if we don’t stop polluting ocean with waste and plastic stop buying plastic bottles n use reusable containers

    And they also took a plane to get there. Twice. Their vacation and pictures cost more than they realize.

    There is a solution: stop hunting for the great selfies and compete with each other who is going to post an “incredible” shot on social media. I dont have any social media profile except Fb. Who needs an Insta...what???

    Do they feel at all responsible for causing an increase in tourism and littering on that beach? I thought this video was going to show them taking responsibility for their irresponsible lifestyle and the effect it has on the planet, but NOPE!

    I try bringing important issues to the attention of my social media contacts, to deaf ears. The biggest part of the population doesn't give a rat's ass, so goddam worried that people might not like them. Burns my ass to no end.

    Not that we should stop focusing on reducing our plastic consumption, but to overcome this problem we should focus on pressuring the countries that still don't have a well functioning trash collection and disposal system to have one. Most of the plastic that ends up on the sea comes mostly from Asia and Africa.
