I’ll translate this later to Bahasa Indonesia.

The Precious Plastic Indonesia group formed after Dave Hakkens videos went viral on Facebook. There were a few groups here in Indonesia that came into contact with each other and a larger group formed. Dave Hakkens website is great for connecting people globally and is a good place to start if you’re in an area that’s rather disconnected and you feel isolated. But, there’s a bit of activity within Indonesia so there’s no need to go to the global community to ask where to find parts when you can ask people who live here in a more local forum.

About myself? I’m Ben Dobbs (http://www.bendobbs.com). I’ve been living in Indonesia since 2011 and really want to help make a difference in some way here in Indonesia. I think with Precious Plastic, it can help but it is not exactly a solution to all plastic pollution problems. I wish people would simply stop generating plastic waste, but at least with precious plastic, we can change the waste back into something useful again and have control over what is produced with it. It’s not a perfect system but it will do well for many applications.
