Every year during the wet season, from November to March, trash by the ton washes ashore, earning it the nickname garbage season. What’s the first thing about Bali that comes to mind? Likely its beautiful, pristine beaches. But beaches on the paradisiacal island in the Indonesian archipelago increasingly feature not shells, but rather, plastic trash. Plastic waste has been piling up on Bali, fueled by a lack of infrastructure—or an official plan—to deal with it. Also contributing to bottle- and bag-strewn beaches are growing tourism, ingrained cultural practices, and a lack of awareness about the lifecycle of plastic from disposal, to sea, to washing up on beaches as trash.

Cable management solved effectively with MPO/MTP flexible strain relief boots offering tight bend radius and custom cable exit paths in rack-to-rack applications Molex Incorporated introduces FlexiBend MPO/MTP flexible-boot cable assemblies designed to optimize cable routing and support low profile installations where cabinet doors or front panels might interfere with traditional straight style bend limiting boots.
