A few months into the pandemic, Made Janur Yasa saw how Covid-19 was disrupting livelihoods in Bali, where more than half of the island’s economic revenue stems from tourism. A local restauranteur, Yasa wanted to help people in his community while also addressing the ongoing problem of plastic pollution. So, he started empowering residents to trade in collected plastic waste for rice. His organization, Plastic Exchange, says the initiative has since spread to more than 200 villages, helped feed thousands of families, and collected nearly 300 tons of plastic for recycling.
