Reducing Plastic Waste in Indonesia

Reducing Plastic Waste in Indonesia

Plastic waste is a huge problem in Indonesia. It’s the second largest polluter globally at 3.22 metric tons a year. Today on the podcast we have two very ambitious women, both looking to make a dent in Indonesia’s plastic waste.

Lyonda Huwaidi is the co-founder and CEO of Water Hub, a startup focused on reducing plastic waste through filtered water stations.

Ovy Sabrina is the co-founder and COO of Rebricks, a company that turns plastic waste into bricks that can be used in landscape architecture.

While their products are different, both are tackling the plastic problem in their own way. We discuss the evolution of their companies and how they’re approaching reducing plastic waste.
