Hidden among paper and cardboard waste are unrecyclable plastic waste smuggled into Indonesia. Biologist, researcher, and environment activist, Prigi Arisandi, investigates how these invaluable plastic scraps from the US and Canada have illegally found their way into the archipelago.
Ecological Observation and Wetlands Conservation (ECOTON) began as a Biology Study Program in 1996. Due to a sense of concern for the environmental issues in East Java, particularly in Kali Surabaya, ECOTON was fully incorporated as a non-profit and non-government organization aimed at raising awareness on the increasing level of waste pollution in East Java’s rivers.
