“Croatia, forgive us!”   “Croatia, forgive us!” Antun Poljanić

Albanian plastic pollution clogs beach on Peljesac

Written by  Mar 15, 2018

Once again Albanian plastic pollution has washed up on the shores of the Dubrovnik – Nerevta County, this time in Trstenik on the Peljesac Peninsular. “Just when we had cleared everything up and when you think the garbage has stopped coming the Albanians send it again. Is there no end to human stupidity,” commented Antun Poljanić on his Facebook account along with photos of the beach in Trstenik.

And there can be no speculation that this latest plastic “invasion” on the Croatian coastline is not from Albania as every piece of plastic pollution has an Albanian label on it. The photos that appeared all over social media channels were even shared by an Albanian activist, who is fighting against waste management, with the simple yet powerful message “Croatia, forgive us!”
