Plastic and chemical contamination threatens environment and livelihoods in Sri Lanka.

Authorities in Sri Lanka have said debris from a burning container ship has caused “probably the worst beach pollution in our history.”

The country’s Marine Protection Authority (MEPA) said the microplastic pollution could cause years of ecological damage to the Indian Ocean island.

A vessel, carrying tonnes of chemicals, caught fire as it waited to enter Colombo harbour last week.
