A Perfect Foundation is our For-Social Change Organisation created to educate and empower local communities in remote global regions to make a sustainable difference. Founded by a group of surfers who wanted to give back to the island communities that have allowed others to enjoy their natural resources for many years before them.
We established our first Education and Conservation Centre in the Mentawai Islands of Indonesia in 2015. Located in the small coastal village of Mapadeget in North Sipora, we have been working together with local communities and its members to help reduce plastic waste ever since.
Remote Islands in Indonesia such as the Mentawai’s are recognized internationally as one of the few remaining places on the planet as having unique cultural and ecological assets. These need to be preserved, not exploited and destroyed. In the last few decades, vast tracts of Amazonian and Indonesian rainforest have disappeared and then lost forever. We’ve seen marine environments spoiled as plastics and pollutants have poisoned once pristine waterways as no or little education has been provided on waste management or recycling options.
A Perfect Foundation realizes that the time is now! We all need to collectively take proactive action to protect these unique marine and forested environments.
