We collaborate with a network of 1,500 fishermen on the north shore of Java, Indonesia, where our team member Billy manages the clean-up. Those fishermen collect the ocean plastic as by-catch. The plastic is cleaned and sorted before processed further. The PET portion of the by-catch is shredded into pellets, while all other unusable parts of the recovered plastic are discarded according to the right recycling chain.
Through our efforts with local authorities, we provide workshops and educate the residents on the environmental threats caused by plastic pollution. In the long term, we hope to create an impact not only by providing environmentally and socially compatible products but also with a change of actions of our audience.
