INDONESIA AT ITS BEST!
Spedagi Movement in Temanggung, Central Java, stole my heart. They organized a three days conference on Village Revitalization without a single plastic waste and all were based on local resources. What an amazing approach in the middle of news streams that Indonesia as the second largest waste producers in the world after China. A religious society as Indonesia? Aren't hygiëne and being clean encouraged by all religions? Why? How? These are what Spedagi has done to avoid waste, especially plastics: Encouraged all participants to bring their own bidons; Provided drinking water in clay jars; Use various leaves and natural materials like bamboo as packaging, plates, cups and utensils. Extra touches were quality of food and drinks that all produced by the locals with local ingredients. It comprised all elements that hips in the Western world: organic, healthy, sustainable and affordable. Plus designs of all packaging and utensils, so unique!
