Plastic Neutral Locations

Waste Management

Consulting & Mentorship: Paula Huerta for PT. Honest Ocean
Year: 2023

Honest Ocean and Paula Huerta are working as sustainability consultants with UNRAM (Mataram University) to learn how to facilitate plastic-neutral places and events on the island of Lombok and in the province of Nusa Tenggara in Indonesia. Our first goal is to achieve plastic neutral accreditation for the Moto GP Mandalika Sirkuit event in October 2023. Under a signed MOU, Honest Ocean and Paula Huerta UNRAM will support this project and facilitate the effort.

The main goal: to create a national movement of plastic neutral sites where universities across Indonesia can educate the rest of Indonesia and the world on better plastic management and circular economy solutions.

We had been searching for pioneers who have the courage, motivation and innovative ideas to try a new waste management pilot in Southern Lombok. Paula Huerta and her office Bambook Studio, not only has their team compassionately dedicated their time and resources to deliver, but instead they now became the main sustainability driver of the project and beyond. Would always be happy if there would be opportunities for collaboration again in the future.

Paula has been exceptionally helping us, the government and community, on how to smartly manage waste, not in conventional ways. In this sense, she shows us a high commitment to changing the current thinking of traditional policy intervention waste management to become more lucrative opportunities and ultimately inclusive.

Paula is one of the most inspiring, down to earth entrepreneurs I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Where sustainability, brilliant ideas and loving kindness meet. Her net-zero architecture inspired us to live more sustainably. Her vision and perseverance is unprecedented. Working with her is a no brainer, I know we will.

I love working with Paula. I learned a lot from Paula in running an environment project and building networking to support our project on waste management in Lombok Island. She is so energetic and innovative.
