Indonesia faces a mounting plastic pollution crisis. Plastics are valued materials with a key role in the economy, and the nation generates around 6.8 million tonnes of plastic waste per year, a figure that is growing by 5% annually. Despite major commitments from government, industry and civil society, the flow of plastic waste into the country’s water bodies is projected to grow by 30% between 2017 and 2025, from 620,000 tonnes per year to an estimated 780,000 tonnes per year.
