So, what is the problem?
The problem is plastic pollution. Yes, the plastic from the sea.
You see, my family loves the beach. We always go to the sea to relax. In fact, everybody in Terengganu loves the beach & sea and are proud of it. Even the motto for the capital of this state is : 'Bandar Warisan Pesisir Pantai' which tranlate to 'City Along The Beach'.
But pollution come from the sea (and a few tourist). Large portion of the pollution comes in form of plastic, they float in the sea and then washed ashore to the beach by the wave.
The large thrash are often collected by the municipal worker. but the cannot pick/sweep the smaller thrash among the sand of the beach. This smaller thrash either will accumulate there or being washed back into the sea again.
First, where is Terengganu?
