Per these reports, the mayor of Jindo County in South Korea had a problem. 600 volunteers were expected to participate in International Coastal Cleanup Day, but there was no garbage for the volunteers to pick up. The mayor solved that problem by arranging for already-collected garbage to be strewn across the beach like a foul Easter egg hunt. He has since apologized, and asserted that all of the garbage was collected and none ended up in the ocean.
바다를 깨끗이 하자는 취지로 '국제 연안 정화의 날' 행사가 열려 진도 주민과 공무원들이 해변에 가득한 쓰레기를 열심히 치웠습니다. 알고 보니 진도군이 행사 효과를 위해 일부러 갖다 버린 거였습니다. pic.twitter.com/oKq5Ebm5KA
