Trash on Beach

Decided today there needs to be a trash/pollution report for beaches and areas of Bali modeled on the lines of the daily tide table on Magic Seaweed. Here's the page for Sanur. It also shows when there's sunrise and set. Right now it could give a moderate trash on beaches concentrating on the high tide mark, some plastic trash and organic material in the water. It could report on which areas were cleaned up etc. There's such poor management here and most people don't care or if they do have defeatist attitudes. Talked with a Javanese friend and told him it had to be Indonesians doing it. Might suggest it to a local youth organization working toward the elimination of plastic bags. Other ideas. I'm just going to suggest stuff to locals and do nothing. - dc
