Trash will undoubtedly continue to rise to the surface, making it difficult to avoid.

The preliminary assumption is that the trash on the beaches is a mix of local waste from the Kuta area as well as consignments from the west or outside of Bali. Despite this, due to the small amount of trash in the sea, the beach is still considered safe for tourists to surf on.

Knowing the foregoing, our awareness as a community that depends on the sea for a living must be high. One step that visitors and local residents can take to help revitalize the sea and its ecosystem is to refrain from throwing trash into it.
