BYE BYE PLASTIC BAGS

 

Bye Bye Plastic Bags (BBPB) is an NGO driven by youth to get the people of Bali to say no to plastic bags. The campaign was launched in 2013 by founders and sisters, Melati  and Isabel Wijsen. Since then, BBPB in Bali, has grown to include a volunteer team of 25 students from local and international schools around the island.

 

The team has spent the last 5 years raising awareness about the waste problem in Bali through delivering school presentations and workshops, organizing beach clean-ups, providing 16,000+ alternative bags, working on creating a plastic bag free pilot village, lobbying with local and national governments, and speaking at a variety of local and global events.

 

These two young women have become a well-known international movement of inspiration and youth empowerment, confirmed by the fact that FORBES has listed them as part of the top 10 most inspiring women in Indonesia. In 2016, BBPB went global and has now established 15+ new BBPB groups in international cities with more inquires each week.
