141 people died, 71 houses were buried in land, and more than 3 villages were destroyed due to a disaster that should not have happened, if we pay more attention to our surroundings. It was 15 years ago, yet nothing really changed to avoid the same disaster. It was a waste pile explosion disaster, happened in Bandung, one of the cities in Indonesia that was supposed to be a comfortable place to travel.
The ocean is supposed to be the place for turtles and fish to swim around, while the beach is the perfect place for humans to have a joyous season with their relatives. But the issues are still the same, the environment got polluted by irresponsible behavior and the lack of education and information about the importance of taking care the environment. This leads to the fact that there are so many places contaminated by waste and sadly it is still out of attention, including in Pantai Pulau Merah, a beach that is located in Banyuwangi Indonesia.
These are only some of the many cases that may not have been seen, yet ready to threaten us because it has remained unseen and unnoticed up to this point, due to the lack of careness from all of us.
In 2019, Greeneration Foundation believes that it is the time for change. It is the time for us to look around and think about what we can do to fix and create betterment. We start our journey by initiating the EcoRanger movement to save Pantai Pulau Merah from rubbish that is contaminating the beach and the environment there. We start to create SEKOLA, a place for us to separate wastes, thus we can reduce the amount of the waste significantly, by doing sorting and recycling programs. We successfully manage to initiate all these programs for creating better and cleaner environment for the people.
But, all the programs above cannot stop right now and there are still many people and places that need your help! We cannot clean the beach without proper waste management facilities. Our team needs funding to continue the program to educate and spread the awareness about the importance of cleaning the environment and sorting the waste. Your help does matter for the continuity of our work here. Help us through any possible things that you can do. Do donate in any amount, so that we can improve our ways to help and solve the waste management problem, and also that will be more than enough for you to be a part of the change itself. Or, it is as simple as do share the news so people can get the spirit to look around and do more care with their surroundings. Do help, to give a better life, not only for this time, but also for the future.
