RECO Indonesia

Recovered Indonesia is recycling hard-to-recyclable plastics with a focus on coastal and remote land areas where waste management is almost non-existent.

RECO is professionalizing the informal sector in their target areas such as South Sulawesi and Moluccas. RECO stands for expertise in difficult material from previously out of reach regions

Veritas Edukasi Lingkungan

With Veritas Edukasi Lingkungan we uncover the truth about plastics, educate communities and we work on honest waste management solutions.

With VEL we are in an international network of decision makers, waste management enterprises, academia, media and activism.

Our Vision

We believe there is a huge demand for environmental change in South East Asia. We recognize that the young Asian generation predominantly active on social media is noticing the threat of climate change and the negative impact of environmental pollution.

We are sure that in the 2020 more awareness will be estabilished together with a thriving circular economy. Our mission is to provide knowledge, factual information and mutual understanding across sectors and populations in South East Asia.



We promote strategies that reduce the consumption of products that have the potential to become waste



We promote strategies to reuse products instead of a throw away culture



We explain how recycling helps to recover resources

We work on people's mindset and understanding about the earth we live on. We believe that people as well as institutions will change their behavior to an altered state of environmental knowledge.

We have deducted concrete steps on how to bring about education into communities that we promote on our social media platform as well as offline. Those steps comprise personal as well as business strategies on how to reduce, reuse and recycle organic and plastic waste.
