THE CHALLENGE

Indonesia is the second largest contributor to ocean plastics. Today roughly 60% of Indonesia’s waste is collected by municipal management systems, with the rest burnt or dumped into the environment. The country currently consumes more than 6 million tons of plastic every year and is estimated to leak 1 million tons per year into the water.
