After floodwater recedes, bridge in Himachal Pradesh becomes graveyard for plastic waste

Incessant rain in Himachal Pradesh has wreaked havoc on the northern Indian state. Flash flooding and structural damage have rocked the mountainous state: Since June 24, there have been about 41 landslides, 29 flash floods, and one cloudburst.

Bridge is covered with plastic rubbish after flood in Himachal Pradesh

The apocalyptic situation worsened when a Twitter user shared a clip capturing the aftermath of flash flooding in the area. The rains already posed a grave danger to the locals in the area, but dealing with the aftermath of these rains is bringing them down on multiple counts.

In the video user Rishi Bagree shared on social media, the flooding in the area had left behind all the plastic debris that would have been deposited in the riverbed or in the cracks of civilization between human-occupied living spaces.

While the water levels of the river flowing into the clip appeared to have dropped significantly compared to before, the remnants of the flooded river were evident. The bridge was covered not only in tree debris like twigs and bark, but with it was overflowing plastic debris.

Some feel India isn’t the most efficient when it comes to waste management, but the video makes this discovery self-evident. The cameraman walks through piles of plastic bottles, polythene plastic, and other debris that were secretly part of the river that flowed under the human bridge.

People on the internet were disappointed in their human counterparts after seeing the video. While the poster mentioned how this was nature’s retribution, one commenter noted that the video was just a warning of the upcoming ecological disasters humans have yet to face.

Yes.. and this is just the warning!! If citizens (tourists) do not protect the ecology, devastation never seen before could occur.

One mentioned how nature turned on its self-cleaning mode and returned its waste to humans. Another user pointed out how similar scenes are discovered near beaches during high tidal waves.

Nature I just activated the automatic cleaning mode…

The same can be seen on Indian beaches at high tide every day.

While people were concerned about the environmental impact of plastic waste, one gave a fairly realistic view of the situation, mentioning how the waste is likely to be returned to the river regardless of its harmful effects.
