Single-use plastic pollution remains a very pressing issue in Indonesia, both given its high leakage into the environment and its acceleration of climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions.
Gerakan Indonesia Diet Kantong Plastik (GIDKP) and Enviu, with support from Plastic Solutions Fund, aim to make Jakarta a concrete, integral zero-waste showcase. Starting from a district, we work on waste prevention by tackling single-use plastic pollution at the source and creating an enabling ecosystem for reuse. This direct, city-level impact can catalyze the movement throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia
By becoming an international showcase for reduction, reuse, and refill through the “Reuse in Jakarta” project, GIDKP and Enviu radically lower the consumption of single-use plastics at the source and set an example for true circular reuse solutions on a city-level and beyond.
GIDKP and Enviu work in close alignment with other NGOs and civil society organizations, including Alliance for Zero Waste Indonesia (AZWI), PR3, Greenpeace US, Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives Asia Pacific (GAIA Asia Pacific), and Break Free From Plastic (BFFP) movement.
