A Review of the Impacts, Causes, and Mitigation Efforts Towards Plastic Waste in Indonesian Coastal Environments CERES Community Environment Park

This Report was written by Nikita Cronyn from La Trobe University who joined us on our Indonesia trip in April 2018 looking at the impacts of plastic waste. This report is based on her findings from that trip.

Indonesia is the second largest contributor to plastic pollution in the world, contributing an estimated 200,000 tons of plastic waste into the ocean and its connecting rivers (Lebreton et al., 2017). But where does the true cause of this pollution lie? Around 9.5 million tourists come to visit this popular destination each year, which suggests that their impact alone has the potential to be the major contributor to this pollution (Law, Lacy, Lipman, & Jiang, 2016). With plastic being inexpensive and durable, it is a commonly used material (Willoughby, Sangkoyo, & Lakaserus, 1997). However, the durable nature of plastic continues after we dispose of it, as it is extremely difficult to degrade through natural processes (Barrows, Cathey, & Petersen, 2018). The degrading process, even after thousands of years, leaves tiny microplastic particles that can be unseen to the human eye, but dramatic in its impact (Barrows, Cathey, & Petersen, 2018). This research essay aims to discuss these impacts of plastic waste specifically towards the highly populated Indonesian Archipelago. Furthermore, a comparison between Indonesian tourists and locals and their estimated contributions towards pollution will be considered, with the intention of investigating the chief cause of this issue. Finally, Indonesian mitigation efforts towards plastic waste will be reviewed with the consideration of what additional mitigation strategies could be put into place to further reduce the negative impacts of plastic waste and Indonesias contribution towards it.

Plastic pollution has a multitude of sources and origins (Willoughby, Sangkoyo, & Lakaserus, 1997). Packaging; bags; cigarette butts; food wrappers; foam cups and clothing fibres are just some of the many different items that not...

Oreo Christmas Tree Pops Green Gourmet Giraffe

During the recent school holidays, I came home from work one day to find Sylvia had put sticks into Oreos and was about to dip them in chocolate.  She had seen it in a Youtube video.  As I am always up for some fun with food, I said these could be a test run for a batch for Christmas in July.

Sylvia choose some chocolate vanilla splits Oreos and when Christmas in July came around she put the sticks into the Oreos without any help.

It would seem easy enough to just poke a stick between the biscuits but chocolate holds much firmer than cream filling.  Sylvia split the Oreo, melted white chocolate to glue the stick on, and then put the lid on.

Covering the Oreos with white chocolate was much harder.  Sylvia had read about meltin...

Golden Mile burgers consider the sauce

  Burgies, 226 Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing. Phone: 8742 2792 Burgies in Hopper Crossing is a sibling to one in Campbellfield. The photos weve seen suggest an outdoor and rather rustic operation, so were not at all sure how were going to go on a sunny Sunday that is also windy and chilly.   []

What the hell, canned wine? The Vulgar Foodie

So canned wine is a thing now?

Somehow I drank it on 3 separate occasions with absolutely no shame. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE  My previous observations of canned wine have involved yelling and trash bins (people were in trash bins when it should have been the canned wine). Suffice to say, the canned wine landscape was looking grim.

hand holding can

Maybe Australia just hadnt caught up to canowine sipping? Im pleased to say that at the very least, the Bay Area has done what it does best and turned something from trash-bin to fridge-win.

This doesnt mean that canned-wine drinking populous is oblivious to its preceding reputation. When I recently ordered some ros with dinner at a respectable establishment, the waiter had to take a...
