How Kerala Fisherfolk Removed 25 Tonnes Of Plastic Waste From The Sea In Just Ten Months

Oceans are one of the biggest, silent victims of pollution. Oceans across the world are so choked with plastic waste that it is killing the marine life including fisheries, which is the lifeline of hundreds of millions of traditional fishermen world over. It is estimated that if pollution continues at the current rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish!

So it is vital for the survival of the planet to keep the ocean clean and alive. Kerala, which has a 600 km long coastline seems to have devised a method to combat the menace of plastic pollution in the seas with the participation of the people who will be most affected by it – the fisherfolk.
