MPH is setting up a community recycling & composting facility in Canggu

Amazing spread of surfboards, surf photography, hotel/spa/wellness vouchers + much more are being auctioned off to raise money for MPH - a local recycling and composting facility in Pererenan (in land from Canggu Right surf break). The land and garbage bike were donated by the village but they need some funds to pay full-time local staff until they become self-sufficient by selling the trash they collect to recyclers. It's all about separating organics and plastics at the source.

MPH was formed in 2016, when a group of motivated people got together with the aim of improving Bali’s growing plastic and waste issues. The group is collaborating with Desa Pererenan, the local subak, residents, a local sustainability company and local coworking spaces.

The group is supported by the well-known Yayasan GUS.

 MPH Goals

  1. Sort, process, compost and recycle 90% of waste/materials within the village.
  2. Create a template, a working model that can be replicated in villages across Bali and beyond.
  3. Educate ourselves and the next generation with practical learning by doing.
