Plastic Village

July 30, 2019

This video comes to us from a charity called Race for Water. It’s a short video and it’s well done. It may make a strong impression on you. 

These two poignant films show the painful reality of an innocent population drowning in the waste of the world… Race for Water takes us to Indonesia – close to Surabaya, the second biggest city after Jakarta – to where the “Plastic Village” exists, a symbol of the environmental disaster caused by global plastic pollution which is threatening us all.
