Paris Decided To Drain This Canal But What They Found Sunken Is Shocking

Paris Decided To Drain This Canal But What They Found Sunken Is Shocking
SPONSORED

As part of the New Year for the world's "City of Love", Paris, France did some cleaning--literally. Canal Saint-Martin is the subject for this project. The last recorded time it was drained and cleared was fifteen years ago (2001). This time, a bunch of strong-willed community workers collaborated to make it possible. The clean-up drive, which began last January 4 this year, unfolded a lot of shocking surprises--specifically, enormous, and undeniably gross.

The garbage found is terrible. I can say that the view seems unexpected to happen in the area. For proofs, ladies and gentlemen, these are they.

Results were really shocking. Good thing, Paris had this kind of initiative. This clean-up must serve as a wake-up call for nations to observe cleanliness and responsibility. Good job to those who did it!
