Plastic Waste

When is enough is enough?
Plastic waste is destroying our waterways and a disgusting first
Impression for tourists

It’s time to act for the good of the environment and our commercial interests

Record levels of plastic flows daily to the sea from mainland rivers, drastically effecting our ecosystem on the Gili Islands and Mainland beaches.

Chilli Island Tourist and Community Radio Plastic Eradication Inititave

A Pristine Lombok project facilitated by

Ekual Akses Foundation Reg. 5016041132101492

Objective: Collect and dispose of plastic waste before it reaches the ocean

  1. Provide villages with waste bins
  2. Collect plastic – transport to landfill
  3. Regular mainland beach clean-up
  4. Educate villagers, especially children through school visits, of the harmful effects of plastic
  5. Tidy Village competition
  6. Promote pride and respect for Lombok at a local level

Rapid change in attitude from villagers and Government will see Lombok regain it’s reputation as a ecologically pristine tourist destination and, in turn, further increase tourism.

The Chilli Island Tourist and Community Radio Plastic Eradication Inititave is already underway in Medana and Tanjung, then it’s on to Bangsal and continuing from village to village along the coast.
