Diet Plastik Indonesia Launches First Reuse Protocol at Music Festival in Bali

Ubud, 4 November 2023. The formulation of joint solutions to plastic pollution has been discussed globally in the international plastic pollution agreement or known as the Global Plastic Treaty. In discussions on the formulation of this agreement, one of the solutions proposed was a reuse solution. Responding to this agenda, Diet Plastik Indonesia is implementing the #ReuseRevolution as a solution to plastic pollution, which is currently focused on public events and involving food and beverage services. To practice the #ReuseRevolution as a step to prevent single-use plastic waste, Diet Plastik Indonesia first launched the Reuse Protocol at a music festival in Bali, IKLIM Fest.

At this music event, there is a reuse protocol that must be adhered to by every visitor and performer in the event area. Starting from when visitors arrive at the venue, there is an inspection of visitors’ luggage to see whether there is single-use plastic or not. If there are visitors who bring single-use plastic, the committee will secure it so they can take it back when the visitor goes home. This protocol is also applied to musicians and crew who will fill the event stage, as well as food and beverage (F&B) tenants. There are 11 F&B tenants who use reusable containers to serve food and drink orders to visitors.

“This festival (IKLIM Fest) is the first festival to implement a reuse protocol, as a provision for the use of reuse containers for the needs of every musician and visitor who attends while in the event area. This step is intended so that the more than 1000 people involved in it can enjoy the music festival and not produce single-use plastic waste. As we know, waste is closely related to the issue of climate change. Not only when it becomes waste, plastic also contributes emissions from the extraction process. “Preventing plastic waste can be done anywhere, including public activities such as music festivals.” said Tiza Mafira as Executive Director of Diet Plastik Indonesia.

Appreciation for the implementation of the reuse system at this music festival was conveyed by Agus Supriyanto as Environmental Instructor, Young Expert, Directorate of Waste Management, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, “Congratulations to Diet Plastik Indonesia for successfully organizing a festival with the first reuse protocol in Indonesia, This all opens our eyes to the fact that this reuse system is very possible to be implemented in any activity, including at music festivals. I hope this won’t be the last festival to use the reuse system. In the future, I hope that many parties will also implement similar things, of course to support an Indonesia free of single-use plastic waste,” said Mr. Agus.

The implementation of the reuse protocol at this festival is of course inseparable from the involvement of the 3 reuse operators involved in the IKLIM Fest event, namely Allas and Balikin based in Jakarta, and Taksu based in Bali. Reuse operators carry out supervision to ensure the cleanliness of reusable containers when serving food and drink menus. After use, the used reusable containers will be collected to be cleaned according to procedures, and reused by F&B tenants. Visitors are also allowed to bring their own containers, making it easier for them to enjoy food and drinks while enjoying the performances of the musicians at IKLIM Fest.

With the initial implementation of this reuse protocol, Diet Plastik Indonesia can prevent waste from more than 1200 menu portions served, which prevents potential waste of single-use food containers (plates, glasses and bowls) and cutlery (spoon, fork and straw). disposable. Also at this event, Diet Plastik Indonesia collaborated with Rumah Kompos Padangtegal to process organic waste from F&B tenants. Through this music festival, Diet Plastik Indonesia proves that waste prevention through reuse protocols is successful by providing integrated education with the parties involved in one event.
