SOCIAL IMPACT OF OWP

RESEA PROJECT

Helping local communities

In Indonesia, local communities live with plastic pollution every day, potentially harming their health and affecting their daily lives. ReSea Project helps the locals by hiring them as collectors, and to be a part of their cleanup team to remove plastic from oceans and rivers. The cleanup has several benefits such as cleaner waterways for the residents, a better environment, and provides the collectors with an additional income.

SUPPORT OF EACH COLLECTOR

Improving the locals living conditions

 

ReSea Project supports each collector and ensures that they are treated fairly. They are paid well above the minimum wage, which for example allows them better access to medical aid, and their children can get a better education, etc. From October 2020 to February 2021, the weighted monthly average per member of ReSea Project’s cleanup team was more than 75% above the minimum wage in Jakarta.
