Plastics in the Black Sea – level 2

20-08-2018 07:00

The Black Sea is located between Eastern Europe and Western Asia. Plastic waste pollutes it, and around 3 tons of the waste flow into the sea every day.

The situation is so bad that surfers sometimes have to go around the plastics to surf. To change things for the better, two Bulgarian windsurfers are running a campaign. Its name is ‘WIND2WIN’, and hopefully, more people will know about this problem.

Another surfer said the people need to start thinking about recycling. They need to start using reusable products, not single-use plastics. Also, the country’s government should help with the problem.

Difficult words: waste (trash; things that you throw away), pollute (make extremely dirty), flow (go, move by water).

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