Clean Up Jakarta Day is an annual event that brings together communities, businesses, schools and individuals as volunteers through gotong royong in the spirit of a cleaner Jakarta.
The aim of Clean Up Jakarta Day is to raise awareness of the problem of rubbish and littering in Jakarta, as well as the need for recycling – starting with us as individuals, at home and at the office. Our vision is that every day will be Clean Up Jakarta Day, as we shape conscious and responsible citizens for a better Jakarta.
The sixth annual Clean Up Jakarta Day took place on Saturday September 15, 2018, and approximately 1 million volunteers turned up, bright and early, to pick up rubbish and clean up Jakarta together. Volunteers separated recyclable from non-recyclable waste as they cleaned at 107 locations around the city through Clean Up Jakarta Day, and hundreds of other locations through the city’s RT/RWs.
Divers Clean Action (DCA) is a youth NGO and community focusing on marine debris issues based in Jakarta.
We've been researching on marine debris data with various partner universities, coastal community development facilitators, environmental collaborating program with diving institutions, campaigns and training since late 2015 with more than 1000 volunteers across Indonesia. We're really excited to gather and collaborate to have a bigger and wider impact of good actions!

"We are an environmental community hub connecting various environmental NGOs, diverse organizations (foundation/institution) and non profits, as well as communities with conscious mindset, to share, discuss, collaborate and explore ideas on sustainable lifestyle and have a goal to push positive footprints and impacts for our children through awareness, workshops and events.
CoHaus co-living space in Jakarta is our 1st basecamp where we host our events, talks and meet ups for environmental issues with various foundations and communities to get connected with one another.
We realised food waste is a big issue in Indonesia. we are ranked second largest food waster globally. Surplus food from wedding parties, corporate functions & lunch provisions, perfectly imperfect plantation produce, government shelf life regulations, emerging food retailers, domestic food behaviours, logistics and infrastructure issues contributed to 300kg per person in average of food waste per annum. At the same time we also found a hard yet simple fact that many are still in need of food and suffer from hunger before they sleep. 19.4 million people in Indonesia remain undernourished (source: FAO.org - 2016)
Food Cycle implements 3 levels approach
Re-Distribute - FoodCycle collects untouched surplus food from local parties and events, food retailers and hospitality providers and coordinate distribution to the local pre-welfare areas to feed hungry children, the elderly and the disadvantaged families
Re-Process - FoodCycle collects imperfectly perfect produce from local plantations / food distributors and shelf life sensitive-not expired products from food manufacturers, and upcycle those products to become a marketable quality food products
Re-Cycle - FoodCycle will collect organic waste from food manufacturers, corporate buildings, shopping malls, apartments, residentials and convert them to be animal feed and compost fertilizer

What Trash Hero Indonesia says ...
"The Trash Hero mission is to bring communities together to clean and reduce waste. We do this through:
Action and Awareness. We pick up trash. Whether a cigarette butt on the sand, or 2000 km from an island beach – if we see it, we clean it! And we motivate others to do the same. By spending a few hours together picking up trash, people gain a profound understanding of the consequences of being careless about waste.
Education. We actively engage children through our multilingual kids’ program, connecting environmental values with hands-on experience of the impact that trash has on the local and global environment. Adults also learn experientially, backed up with information and workshops provided by our volunteers.
Sustainable Projects. We create long-term programs that help communities to remove and better manage their waste, and strategies that will reduce the amount of waste being produced in the future.
Inspiration. We motivate people to become Trash Heroes in their everyday lives. With consistently positive messaging, and a philosophy of “small steps”, we remove the barriers to change. Trash Hero volunteers have gone home to make their own heroic clean-ups around the world.
Trash Hero believes that every one of us can be a Trash Hero. Read more about our projects, and join this global movement today."

"We are a team of nature-respecting entrepreneurs, enthusiastic in growing a business that can support various aspects and efforts to reduce wastes. “Navakara” is derived from sanskrit words of “na” (no) and “avakara” (waste). And as “mitra” means partner also in Sanskrit, the company is thriving to be the best partner of zero waste solutions to those who share the same care about the environmental issues.
The company Mitra Solusi Navakara is founded by four friends who like to think and push further on how to raise awareness of our environmental degrading issues.
Living healthy, safe, and comfortable, where the abundance of the natural earth is also conserved and protected, is the “conscious living” that the founders are supportive of.
The founders’ combined education, expertise and years of experiences in sales, marketing, retail, wholesale, and international trading are also what relevant to understanding the challenges and opportunities to enter new markets. "

What Indonesian Waste Platform says ...
" Indonesia is in the global spotlight, with scientists estimating the country is the second largest contributor to marine plastic waste in the world.
The creation of waste involves us all, from producers to consumers, regulators to educators. System-wide change can only occur by mobilising us all, by breaking down silos, building mutual understanding, and co-designing appropriate solutions. To drive lasting change, we believe we need to collaborate across geographies, sectors and communities in radically creative and people-centered ways.
Indonesian Waste Platform (IWP) was founded in 2015 to catalyse this collaboration, making it possible for government, business and civil society to work together rather than in silos to design solutions and deliver against Indonesia’s National Plan of Action on Marine Debris. To this end, we are currently focusing on three strategic priorities: "
A waste management company that provides machines and tools to ensure zero waste to landfills

"we believe with proper trainings, tools, methods, commitments, and networks, DIY waste management is possible"
"On a mission to get 1,000,000 people to reduce their plastic consumption by using sustainable alternatives by 2020! Join the movement now!"

What Social Impakt - Nazava water filters Impact says ...
"Back in 2010, I was Vice-President for Europe, Middle-East and Africa for an English corporation, which manufactures yeast and bakery ingredients. Based in Dublin, I was managing 800 employees spread over 9 countries in charge of a 260 million US dollar business, traveling always more.
In 2012, I felt like having a brand new start, giving a new meaning to my life… focused on my humanist values. Like when I was 21 years old. With a friend we founded a humanitarian organization at our Business School. Vent d’Est (East wind) aimed at supporting Romanian people with medical care, books, toys, just after the fall of the Iron curtain. We went to Romania twice.
I realized at that moment how lucky I was and how helping people in need was my duty, my path.
You can have a big impact with very little action. When the Human being is your main point of focus, your main value, you feel alive.
Jeroen van Overbeek"
