Bali Beaches Full of Plastic – level 3

11-01-2021 15:00

Bali’s beaches have been covered with tons of plastic that regularly invades its beaches at this time of year when the monsoon season begins.

Indonesian workers have been cleaning up piles of debris and plastic waste that was brought to the famous island by strong waves. According to authorities, between 30 and 60 tons of rubbish is collected from the island’s most famous beaches each day. Although rubbish flooding onto Bali beaches is a regular phenomenon, authorities say that this year is worse than previous years.

Thousands of tourists would normally be in Bali at this time of year; however, the coronavirus pandemic has halted overseas travel and there are only a few visitors.

Difficult words: debris (pieces of rubbish or remains), phenomenon (a fact or event that people can observe), halt (to stop).
