Plastics in the Black Sea – level 1

20-08-2018 07:00

The Black Sea is between Eastern Europe and Western Asia. Plastic waste pollutes it. Around 3 tons of plastics get into the sea every day.

This is a problem. It is so bad that surfers sometimes cannot surf. Two surfers want to make things better. They start a campaign. It is called ‘WIND2WIN’.

They want more people to know about this problem and help. The government can help too.

Difficult words: waste (things that you throw away), pollute (make very dirty), campaign (an event to get people’s attention), government (the ‘bosses’ of a country).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
