We provide a barter program that provides Balinese people with rice in exchange for collecting plastic waste. “Come with trash, back with rice!”
Watch our video to get the full story
For every 3kg of plastic, we donate 1kg of rice.
A small donation of IDR10,000 (US$0.75) will buy 1kg of rice, and this will feed one family of four (husband, wife + 2 kids) per day.
Donate now to help us to provide rice!! For now there is only a separate personal bank account for the initiative, but I am in the process to form a Yayasan then I will have Yayasan bank account:

The Mission: to Empower Balinese people to prosper through a barter program that provides sustenance in exchange for collecting plastic waste.
“Within every crisis lies an opportunity.”
This was the mindset of Tabanan-native, I Made Janur Yasa, when he asked himself how he could help his village amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
The idea became clear — “Plastic for Rice.”
This new barter program would turn the problem of environmental pollution into an opportunity to use plastic trash as a currency for food.
Wasting no time, 1 ton of plastic was collected in only four days, feeding approximately 300 people.
With rapid success in Banjar Jangkahan and Banjar Penulisan, Batuaji Village, I Made Janur realised this model could be replicated in other villages to create a greater impact.
In response to a growing interest from surrounding villages, this FB group to serve as place for people to discuss and spread the words wide and far.
Join us to empower Bali and reap the rewards of environmental and economic prosperity.
