Andaman Islands, India

Thought I might do a little bit of stocktaking and put together an itinary of the plastic pollution pictures featured on the Planet trash Facebook page. Today it is the turn of the Andman Islands, India

They really are the most wonderful islands surrounded by coral reefs of such beauty words fail me….AND YET THEY ARE COVERED IN PLASTIC TRASH.

Sure much of it is created on the island. With no proper way to deal with it it is dumped or dropped wherever. The rest is washed up by the sea. You can see the rest of the photos in this series here

 Andamans – trouble in paradise

And here are some photos of the island clean up day here – hundreds of sacks of plastic trash, a whole navy boat full in fact, were removed.
