Activists from an environmental group helped prepare a plastic bag and bottle installation for a special museum in Gresik, Indonesia on Wednesday.
Environmental activist group Ecological Observation and Wetlands Conservation (ECOTON) has built a plastic waste museum with more than 4,000 pieces of plastic to remind people of plastic waste pollution in the rivers and oceans.
Indonesia is facing a plastic waste crisis. Only an estimated 10 percent of the country’s yearly 6.8 million tonnes of plastic waste can be recycled. Almost half is dumped or burned, according to the Wilson Center. – CGTN
