Bali’s palm-fringed Kuta beach has long been a favourite with tourists seeking sun and surf, but nowadays its golden shoreline is disappearing under a mountain of garbage. Plastic straws and food packaging are strewn between sunbathers, while surfers bobbing behind the waves dodge waste flushed out from rivers or brought in by swirling currents. “When I want to swim, it is not really nice. I see a lot of garbage here every day, every time,” Austrian traveler Vanessa Moonshine explains. “It’s always coming from the ocean. It’s really horrible,” she adds. Often dubbed a paradise on earth, the Indonesian holiday island has become an embarrassing poster child for the country’s trash problem.

In British Columbia virus infested blood is being pumped through pipes directly into the sea. Fukushima is spewing tons of radioactive water into the sea everyday in Japan (since March 2011).
From every port and sewer in the world we dump, spew, and pump toxic filth into the sea.
We need to give our Ocean the time to repair the damage we have done.
And remember, when the Ocean dies, we all die!" 😓
