After lockdown relaxation, visitors at Cocoa Beach litter 6000 kg of trash

Ever since the lockdown has been imposed across the world to control the Coronavirus pandemic, nature has been teaching us silently about where have humans gone wrong and how beautiful life could be only if we learn to live in tune with it.

And just when we had begun to form an opinion that people have learned their lessons, a gory sign of human apathy emerged in Florida recently. According to the latest reports, when Cocoa Beach City was opened to the public on the first weekend of May 2020, a large number of people thronged the beaches to cool off and relax. Shockingly, the crowd left behind more than 6000 kg of garbage at the beaches by the end of the day.

Keep Brevard Beautiful, a non-profit based in Florida-based which picks garbage across the city, gathered as many as 297 garbage bags on the first weekend itself!
