10 August 2018

Waves of rubbish and plastic are floating to shore at the popular Mexican resort of Cabo San Lucas on Wednesday. Locals have started to gather and clean the beach. Not many people showed up that they need more garbage bags to put the rubbish in. Environmental group Parley estimates that at least 5 trillion pieces of plastic weighing over 250,000 tonnes are flowing in the world's oceans.
