While diving in the waters of Bali, Indonesia, the British diver Rich Horner did not expect to literally swim in an ocean of plastic. Bags, bottles, straws, cups, toys, the diver was swimming in a real ocean of plastic waste, brought by the marine currents. A sadly impressive video. Bali is now invaded by plastic, while the Indonesian archipelago is releasing 1.29 million tons of waste per year. Almost daily, locals discover hundreds of tons of garbage washed up on the beaches. A catastrophic ecological situation.
