The ‘waste emergency’ in Bali, with Sheany | The Coconuts Podcast | Nov 12, 2021

This week, we talked trash with Coconuts Bali’s own Sheany. Bali Governor Wayan Koster declared that Bali is facing a “waste emergency”, ordering regional officials to implement waste management programs to combat the issue. Bali’s waste issue has long been highlighted by environmental activists on the island, but will the circular be enough to spur everyone into action?
