Indonesia is one of the largest producers of plastic waste in the world. Poor waste management systems mean that in Indonesia only 7.5% of all waste is recycled and composted. This leads to serious waste management problems across the country such as 1.3 million tons of plastic ending up in the nation's rivers and oceans. Most waste created in Indonesia is sent to landfills causing severe negative impacts in urban areas, rivers and marine ecosystems.
As main actors and contributors to this problem, how can we incorporate small changes to our daily lives that could potentially have a big impact?
