Netizens Praise Young Influencers For Spreading Awareness On River Pollution Through Their River Cleaning Videos

Germany’s central environmental authority, the Federal Office for the Environment (UBA) president, Maria Krautzberger said that a recent study revealed that younger people are aware of the need to care for and protect the environment but place it low on their list of personal priorities.

But not for this group of young boys!

Recently, a group of young influencers, known to their followers as the @pandawaragroup on TikTok, shares how they clean “the dirtiest river they’ve ever seen so far”

In the video, the boys are seen working together and using all types of tools to clear the trash-filled river. According to the video, it took them at least two days to remove almost ALL of the trash in the river.

They also mentioned in the video that they took all of the garbage they collected to their local garbage facility.

What caught Indonesian netizens’ attention were the before and after comparisons of the river, which was incredible because they literally collected every single trash and left the river spotless. 

The video has since garnered over 27.7 million views at the time of writing, “The most extreme river we’ve seen” the caption reads.

Many took to the comment section to praise the young men for their efforts: “If you can’t be like them, then the least you could do is to not litter,” one person said. 

While another person said: “These are the young people that we should take as an example. Keep up the good work, boys!”

That is amazing! You boys are such an inspiration to all of us!
