North Sipora in the Mentawai Islands covers an area of 383km2, 192km2 of which is still forested. It supports a population of just over 12,000, the most populated region in the Mentawai Islands living in a total of 29 villages. There is currently no plastic waste management system in place in North Sipora and the majority of households burn their plastic waste. Plastic waste that isn’t burnt is dumped and often finds its way into rivers or the ocean, especially after heavy rains or a storm. At its current population, North Sipora has a potential to produce 2.5 tons of rubbish a day, 60% of which is recyclable.
Education on the correct disposal of plastic waste is extremely limited, littering of the environment is a standard practise and continues on unchecked. There are 36 public and private schools in North Sipora, from Pre-school to Secondary age. On occasions, these schools have been seen to carry out clean-ups in their area however the resulting collection of waste is either burnt or dumped.
This online auction will assist us in developing our recycling and waste management project and continue educating the region about the importance of protecting their environment and beautiful islands.
Our auction items have been donated by other operators and organisations that support our work, as well as our founding company The Perfect Wave.
