News from our auditing manager!

In light of the current global context, we believe it is time to share some news from our OWP teams in Indonesia. Our auditing manager Yusuf has regularly been in contact with our different clean-up teams and their families to stay updated and make sure they are healthy and well.

 

Our plastic cleanup has never been better and we have so far collected 1.700 ton of plastic in 2020.

NEWS FROM OUR AUDITING MANAGER

An abrupt stop in their income

The coronavirus disease has, like in all other countries, taken a hard blow at the economy and mainly small businesses in Indonesia. Particularly our local fishermen and their families have experienced an abrupt end to their normal income, as many of their customers are closed indefinitely. More than ever, they are now dependent on collecting plastic from the oceans to be able to support their family.

Meet Dayat & Waskeem

Dayat works as a fisherman, but in these times he has no customers for the fish and mussels he catches. Now his only income comes from collecting plastic from the oceans. Him and his wife Waskeem work as a team where Dayat collects plastic from the ocean and Waskeem sorts and rinse the plastic afterwards.

“Life in general is difficult at the moment, as we rely on being able to collect plastic from the oceans. We are very thankful that many companies see the great potential in removing plastic from the oceans. ”
