A 36-year-old man from Indonesia donned a Spider-Man costume to collect trash from streets and beaches.
Indonesian cafe worker Rudi Hartono said that he collects waste after wearing Spider-Man costumes before his cafe work begins at 7 pm and now more and more people have been noticing him.
He said he is trying to raise awareness about plastic pollution but wasn’t very successful in his attempts then he decided to do something different and started dressing up like Spider-Man!
“After wearing this costume, it turns out the public’s response was extraordinary,” he added.
Many parts of Indonesia suffer from having little in the way of organized public services to deal with trash, with plastic waste in particular often ending in rivers or in the oceans.
Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country, generates 3.2 million tonnes a year of waste, with nearly half ending up in the sea, a 2015 study in the journal Science showed.
Following Plastic pollution, Pakistan cricket team former skipper Wasim Akram’s wife Shaniera Akram shared a message for people who use plastic.
She took to Twitter and posted a picture of Karachi’s Seaview beach covered with heaps upon heaps of garbage.
“Remember that plastic that we used once,” she asked, followed by a video in which workers were cleaning up the beach.
She had earlier demanded authorities’ attention towards the horrific condition of Karachi’s Clifton beach, declaring the beach in a state of emergency.
In 2013, Wasim Akram, in a small ceremony attended by his family and close friends, married Australian lady Shaniera Akram after the sad demise of his wife in 2009 due to multiple organ failure.
