Indonesia ranks as the 2nd largest plastic polluter to the oceans after China.

On the island of Bali, it is predicted that only 4% of plastics are recycled.

A lot of this is due to the lack of waste management and recycling infrastructure. Although Indonesia has pledged to reduce 70% of plastic pollution it emits into the ocean by 2025, we are continuing to see an increase in illegal landfills that are piling up alongside rivers.

Education + Outreach

Community outreach is an essential part of our mission to combat plastic pollution. We organize education sessions to engage communities and encourage better waste management. We host education and cleanup events with local schools. Additionally, we have engaged local governments and have connected through presentations and cleanups. The installation of our trash barriers also serve as a great conversation starter to curb plastic pollution at a local level.

Thank you to our volunteers!

Since revamping our weekly cleanups in April 2022, we have accomplished over 25,524 volunteer hours and removed over 432,162kg of non-organic trash!

Through our weekly volunteer cleanups, we are able to empower local communities to stop illegal dumping.

Help us clean all illegal landfills in Bali!
