Environmental Catastrophy

Sungai Watch

Bali - Indonesia
  • Main problem:
    Plastic Pollution
  • Subproblem:
    Environmental Pollution, Lack of infrastructure
  • Consequence:
    Environmental pollution, Environmental destruction
  • Solution:
    River Cleanups

We are on a mission to protect and restore Indonesia’s rivers by developing and designing simple technologies to stop the flow of plastic pollution from going into the ocean.

We plan to clean every river in Indonesia.

  • 884,465 kg of plastics collected
  • 438,826 kg of organics collected
  • 176 Barriers installed
  • 342 + Community cleanups

CLEANING RIVERS We believe trash barriers are the quickest and most cost effective way to eradicate plastic pollution by activating communities on land. Rivers are the perfect connection point between life on land and our ocean.

EMERGENCY CLEANUPS We organize emergency cleanups at illegal dumps and along riverbanks to prevent plastic from entering rivers as well as work on enforcing proper waste management at the local level.

We believe that every running river (big or small) should have some type of barrier to prevent non-organic materials from reaching the ocean.
Our barriers are the perfect tool to get communities and governments involved in cleaning our rivers and collecting data to understand how to better improve waste management practices.

Help us install the next 1,000 Barriers and clean Indonesia!
