1.3 million tons of plastic is produced daily in Indonesia, of which "80% will end up in the ocean" - Siti Nurbaya Bakar, Minister of Environment and Forestry.

To prevent a drastic measure such as the closing of the famous Maya Bay in Thailand due to the damage caused by tourists on the natural ecosystem, a local solution is needed to combine tourism and environmental protection.

We aim to raise local communities' awareness on the damaging impact of plastic on their ecosystem, and how they can use this resource as a commodity. To do so, we will create a direct collaboration with Indonesia's villages on how to manage their waste in a sustainable manner.  Our goals will be to:



-Inform them on the value of plastic, and how they can extract this value to gain additional income
-Sensitize, teach and train local communities to manage their waste
-Organize
workshops and presentation in the local schools to educate young people and put them on a sustainable path early on
-Constantly research new technologies to ecologically treat waste
-Bring affordable
low-tech machinery to these villages to upcycle the waste
-Restore the natural charm of Indonesian islands by
emptying plastics from the ecosystem
-Find alternatives to single-use plastics

By doing so, a quantifiable value will be put on plastic, and it will be seen as a commodity instead of a debris.

We are proud to present our e-Nemo: a 100% solar-powered boat, built by Azura Marine©, responsible for transporting the collected plastic from the villages to our warehouse:

The e-Nemo will have as mission to:

- Collect the waste that has been picked up by coastal communities

- Collect the waste of other live-aboard cruises like ours

- Transport the NGO staff from villages to villages

- Transport local children from their villages to snorkeling sites, as part of our awareness campaign
