We are an eclectic team of visionaries: artists, filmmakers, teachers, entrepreneurs, leading a movement to prevent ocean plastic and clean our precious oceans.
We will implement a hydro-solar powered wheel that intercepts plastic & trash on one of the most polluted areas in East Indonesia NTB.
Indonesia along with China and India are responsible for 30% of the Global trash production.

Keep Our Oceans Clean And Educate Local Communities

The Ampenan River Park

In Indonesia, a locally lead team is bringing a hydro-solar powered trash wheel to the Jangkuk River in Lombok- the island’s largest river located 200 meters from the Indian Ocean. The trash wheel was created by U.S. company Clearwater Mills and has proven to be a resounding success in Baltimore, Maryland – where it has intercepted over 354 tons of trash flowing in Jones Falls River from emptying into the Atlantic Ocean.

Our aim is to revitalize the riverbed in Ampenan, Lombok, into a natural river park – creating a community hub of recreation and business, using the sustainable technology of the waterwheel trash interceptor to clean the river and keep the trash from flowing into the ocean. We are modeling our vision off of the proven success in Baltimore, where their Inner Harbor has been revitalized as a place of community and tourism, while providing education, awareness, and stewardship of their waterways.

In addition to the implementation of a trash wheel, we will also be working to educate the local community in Lombok about the devastation of our oceans and working together to promote a working system of waste management. The wheel will collect the trash, in the most volume during storm surges – emptying it into a large dumpster. There is already a road at the projected site of Jangkuk River’s future trash wheel, which will allow for easy access of transporting the trash. Each container will be brought to a dump in Lombok, where it will be sorted and studied, just like in Baltimore.

We hope to take this project one step further by partnering with companies and artisans, who are focused on re-purposing this waste into raw materials for production of goods – fabrics, baskets, bags, lamps, etc. Although this project in based in a solitary river and town on a single island, we believe that this model can inspire the rest of Southeast Asia and the world to incorporate this system of technology and education to begin cleaning our collective waterways – deterring littering and catching the waste before it goes into the ocean.

In Indonesia, Oceans Care and Bluewatercruises are bringing a hydro-solar powered trash wheel to the Jangkuk River in Lombok (located west of Bali), the island’s largest river, just 200 meters from the Indian Ocean. The trash wheel was created by U.S company Clearwater Mills and has proven to be a resounding success in Baltimore, Maryland, where it has intercepted over 354 tons of trash flowing in Jones Falls River from emptying into the Atlantic Ocean. They have just launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to support this endeavor.

Earthquake Relief Project Mentigi

We are in North Lombok, leading the Mentigi Relief Project. Since the first series of earthquakes on August 5th, 2018 devasted and destroyed mostly family homes and buildings, we’ve been delivering emergency food, supplies, shelters to the major affected areas in North Lombok.

There have been approximately 500 deaths and hundred of thousands displaced. We are currently focusing our efforts on rebuilding our Mentigi community of about 2000 people, with more semi-long term solutions than just tarps, which have already started to wear significantly.

We are rebuilding with sustainable locally sourced materials, like bamboo, alang-alang roofs and wood. Our designs are based on The Mentigi Bay Villas dome structure, they are tested earthquake proof and high enough to guard against tsunamis. Our partners at Agung Siaga have been helping to publish our latest updates through photos & videos on their instagram and facebook pages.

With the donations given thus far, our team has distributed food, water, and basic necessities such as medicine, tarp roofs, blankets, sanitary products, and much more. Our team has driven to various remote places to distribute these items.

Currently the homeless have moved back their rubble homes to camp under donated plastic Banners. They are breaking down of what’s left so we can begin the rebuilding phase for a new start.
Over 600 Schools on Lombok were not functioning after the earthquake. The facilities we provided are now successfully used to provide basic needs, healing therapy and inspiration, to bring a smile back to the beautiful faces of the community

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their generous donations so far. All efforts have helped tremendously but the people of Lombok need all the support and love it can get.
We aim to make Lombok a safe and eco friendly place, through educating younger generations with art, music, gardening and cooking classes, teaching evacuation plans for natural disasters and waste management . We create life changing experiences for children, volunteers and the community . Support our goal to make this project a permanent and ongoing progress, successful international exchange, and an exemplary project for the future.
