‘Rubbish season’ is underway in Bali as plastic covers the country’s beaches in what is now becoming an annual event attributed to ocean pollution and monsoons. The tourist beaches of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are among those being flooded with up to 60 tonnes of plastic rubbish every day. […] Principal research scientist at Australia’s CSIRO science agency Dr Denise Hardesty said it was no wonder the plastic was washing up on Bali’s beaches year on year.
