Today industries continue producing and pushing plastic as an option. However, the consumers are becoming more educated and concerned about the source - and the destiny - of the products they buy. This creates the perfect opportunity to reshape our relationship with plastic. If we stop buying it, we will be sending a powerful message to those industries that they might be willing to acknowledge.
Bali government announced the ban on all single-use plastic bags, straws, and polystyrene becoming the first province in Indonesia to do so. This result was only possible thanks to a group of students at Green School that created the project Bye Bye Plastic Bags. Inspired by their teacher, Isabel and Melati have been leading a youth movement to rid Bali of single-use plastic bags.
