TED TALK: Bye Bye Plastic Bags Bali

Bali, and indeed Indonesia, is often a land of contradictions. With its breathtaking natural beauty, stunning beaches and friendly locals there is also a growing problem of litter - in particular the plastic bags that are choking the streets, beaches and even forests of the island. 

We're feeling very inspired by these young women and their initiative to help make Bali plastic bag free. Watch this wonderful TED Talk where two young sisters, Melati and Isabel Wijsen speak about their successes and some of the hurdles in bringing attention to such an important issue facing the island - and indeed much of the world. They speak with a confidence well beyond their years and definitely give us confidence that with leadership like theirs, the next generation are in good hands!
