Solution Search: Siklus in Indonesia

Indonesia is the second-largest ocean plastic polluter in the world. Out of financial necessity, 70% of Indonesians buy their household goods in single-serving sachets rather than in bulk. As 15% of the sachet cost comes from packaging, low-income populations often pay extra for their everyday needs in small portions, a so-called "poverty tax.” Siklus set up refill stations in neighborhood stores, where customers can bring their own containers to refill everyday needs. Siklus also set up mobile refill stations that come to customers' doorsteps and give an extra convenience.
