Medang island

West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Our island is beautiful, we know it and we love it. But we encounter an unfortunate problem that occurs the world over. GARBAGE.

In the past, the garbage was not a problem, we were only a community living far away from the citys, and most of the garbage was organic. But everything changed, the high increase of tourists in the area, new consumption habits (processed foods and manufactured goods), and zero environmental awareness have increased incredibly the garbage and now plastic and other refuse is in the water, on the ocean floor, on the beaches, and in the coastal mangroves.To find us you first of all need to fly to Sumbawa island on the easterly tip of West Nusa Tengarra. From there it is a 3 hour trip by sea or motor boat from Goa Beach to Pulau Medang.
The 3000 people living on Pulau Medang in 2 villages Bugis and Bajo and are divided into 3 ethnic groups and customs – Bugis, Bajo and Mandar – that live in harmony which each other.
The majority of the inhabitants make their livelihood as fishermen, farmers and labourers as well as cow, water buffalo and goat breeders.

This problem does not go away

What we do

More and more plastics are being consumed everyday and inevitably some of these wind up in our oceans to float along until they land on our little island.
