He so thankful to RCBUS for sponsoring 200 bins to completing his program. It will be long journey to educate the villagers to do the waste management so that’s way he buy all the unorganic waste from families, from this he dream about all the rivers is clean from plastic, he also believe if he can reduce the plastic start from his village it will also reduce plastic on the river in Ubud area or Denpasar area and to the ocean. He also encouraging and explain the guests he guiding for the river trekking about his movement, few of his guests so exited to joining his program to collecting all the plastic from the way they passed it.
