Bali struggles against plastic mountain

Environmental activists have shown that Bali produced 750 tonnes of plastic waste every day.

Speaking during a demonstration to mark Earth Day in Denpasar, the coordinator of the campaign "the Beautiful Bali Without Plastic" said the estimated weight is based on data collected from retailers, communities and units waste disposal. The association, businesses and local communities work together to reduce consumption and use of plastic. Most people in Bali believe that waste reduction and disposal are the responsibility of government, making it difficult to encourage active community or business efforts.
