Bali Beaches Full of Plastic – level 2

11-01-2021 15:00

Bali is a popular Indonesian island and thousands of tourists visit it every year. Sadly, the island has a big problem with plastic waste on its beaches.

When the monsoon season starts, strong waves bring tons of plastic to Bali’s beaches. This happens every year, but authorities say that this year is much worse than previous years. Indonesian workers clean between 30 and 60 tons of plastic every day.

At this time of year, Bali is usually full of tourists. The coronavirus pandemic made it almost impossible to travel to many destinations, so there are only a few tourists on Bali.

Difficult words: waste (things which people throw away), monsoon season (the time of year when strong winds bring rain to parts of Asia), destination (a place where people make a trip).
