Jakarta is a megapolis with a population of more than 9.6 million in 2010. As reported by Clean Up Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital produces 6,700 tonnes of rubbish each day and much of it ends up on the street or in the city’s rivers.

Knowing this, we understand the importance of raising awareness towards this problem and creating an effective solution.
