The use of plastic materials is inseparable from our life. Many of our everyday products are made from plastics, for example, shopping bags, food or beverage packaging, and household appliances. However, because the problem of managing plastic waste has not been resolved fully, there is a significant increase in the amount of plastic waste every year.
Based on a report from Badan Pusat Statistik in 2021, it is estimated that from 66 million tons of plastic waste in Indonesia, approximately 0.26-0.59 million tons eventually flow into the sea and become marine debris.
In addition to having a negative impact on ecosystems, endangering wildlife, and causing changes in environmental temperatures that can aggravate the spread of infectious diseases, plastic waste also has a negative effect on human health. Diseases such as cancer, organ damage, disorders in the growth of fetus and child are some of the potential threats to your loved ones.
For this reason, Jangjo as a waste management startup that cares about environmental sustainability was inspired to create an ecosystem based on sustainability practices and zero waste solutions. Jangjo aims to increase awareness among Indonesians about waste management, inspiring a decentralized system of waste sorting and efficient recycling. Moreover, Jangjo also provides technology to facilitate all parties involved in waste management and recycling systems for more effective and efficient results.
