I'm gonna tell you one tragic reality. Indonesia is the second biggest contributor of waste in the world. I know, right? It’s a terrifying fact. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry predicted that this year 66.5 million tons of waste was produced by household waste in Indonesia. Well, I think I can’t take it anymore hearing this sad truth. If we don't do something, a place we called home is no more than just a mountain of trash. This big issue motivates CoHaus to take an action.
CoHaus celebrated a world clean up day on September 15th 2018 by encouraging the residents and some communities to clean up our local area in Jakarta. CoHaus concerned a lot about environment. We want Indonesia to be a better place because it’s our home and we want to take a part of the responsibility to create a clean environment. A clean environment is our dream. It’s not impossible to make that dream comes true.
We don’t have to call a superhero to do this action because we are heroes too! Being a hero doesn’t need a complex actions, you don’t have to be a president to make a change or be a spiderman who saves women and kids in an emergency situation. One simple action to help saving the world is a hero. CoHaus gives residents the opportunity to be a hero in one day to make our home better place by hosting a “Clean Up Jakarta Day”.
CoHaus collaborated with communities who had the same concern as we did such as Play Field Jakarta, Going Green Jakarta and Roshan Learning Centre to clean our neighborhood by picking up litter alongside the street. We walked through the road and clean it up together. That was such a memorable day. You know that feeling when you do something good, it just satisfied you. That was exactly what we feel. Now we are heroes and we are ready to save the environment, our lovely home. Oh, wait! The hero’s job doesn’t end here. We need to keep our neighborhood clean and litter-free! Let’s do it!
