WATCH: Hangs down into dirty patch of sea to pick up other people’s discarded waste

Awareness about the damage caused by plastic to sea creatures has increased, and as a result many are being more careful about what they leave behind when they go to sea.

However, apart from some environmental organisations and activists who organise regular clean-ups, very few bother to go to the trouble of picking up waste discarded by others, particularly from dirty areas.

This is exactly what a swimmer in Birzebbugia did, when he spotted pieces of plastic in the sea and waded in to pick them up, even if this area of water included amounts of waste carried in by the currents.

This video footage was shot by a person who happened to be nearby, close to the waterpolo pitch, and has been posted on social media with the aim of pushing others to emulate the example of this person, who with his small gesture managed to make a difference.
