One of our most challenging and complicated issues is the pollution of the river which runs through Jiwa Damai. Much garbage and plastic is coming down our way. After putting up nets, and other barriers, we now built a solid fence which does not break and does not allow the plastic to go further. However, this implies that we have to daily put on our rubber gloves and clean the debris which are caught and fill them in large plastic bags to be picked up and taken to a landfill. Unfortunately there is no recycling of plastic yet in Bali.
