With an actively growing population and limited space, Israel has faced serious complications concerning proper waste disposal. This has led to an enormous pollution issue in the country, one that most people are not completely aware of. One organization is trying to change the game, picking up one piece of trash at a time. Plastic Free Israel is an NGO dedicated to cleaning up Israel's beaches. Once a month, this organization schedules meet-ups at various locations with hundreds of volunteers. This feature follows the volunteers as they target Israel's polluted beaches.
