IMPACT STORIES

Since 2017, we have been working with businesses, government and the local community in Muncar Municipality, Banyuwangi Regency in East Java, Indonesia to create a comprehensive waste management system to stop environmental plastics leakage. In February 2022, Project STOP Muncar was handed over to the local government and community. Now, the project operates in two more cities, Pasuruan Regency in East Java and Jembrana Regency in Bali, and has started its expansion over the entire Banyuwangi Regency, East Java.

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.

PROJECT STOP
