Bali's Link Between Plastic Trash and Education

Bali Governor Has Ingenious Scheme to Fund Schools and Education While Ridding the Island of Plastic Trash.

Bali's governor Pastika has come up with an ingenious way of working towards his goal of a "green and clean" Bali by mobilizing grade school children across the island to help rid the island of plastic waste. Seeking to clean up waste plastic and provide much needed funds for children to pay school fees, the governor wants to pay funds to grade school children who collect waste plastic.

The initial funds would be earmarked for the operational expenses of schools through the purchase of plastic waste from primary school kids.

The provincial government would require that students collect waste plastic and bring it to collection centers at schools where they would be paid Rp. 20,000 (US$2.25) per kilogram.

Governor Pastika admitted before the press on September 16, 2010, that the exact amount of capital needed for the first phase of the plastic collection scheme is still under review, dependent on the calculations for the profit that can be derived by the schools selling the collected plastic waste to recyclers.

The governor is also hopeful that an added benefit from the plastic collection program will be the creation of an entrepreneurial spirit among Bali's younger generation. "If the plastic wastes are purchased by the schools, the students will have pocket money that will teach them the value of personal enterprise," said Pastika.

On its most basic level, governor Pastika hopes that the proposed program involving young children will hasten the elimination of plastic waste from the island. This is in keeping with Pastika's pledge to free Bali of plastic.
