Plastic plague – Garbage dump in Bali, Indonesia. The island has earned a reputation as a tourist paradise but has suffered with high levels of plastic pollution.
Ethical consumption – Avani Eco produces four tons of cassava bioplastic a year, which is used to produce a wide range of products including food packaging.
Suck it up – The material is also used to produce drinking straws.
Green allies – Avani Eco has allied with "Bye Bye Plastic Bags" campaigners Melati and Isabel Wijsen to lobby the Balinese government to control plastic pollution.
As of 2018, conventional plastic bags will be banned on the island.
