About Parongpong Recycle and Waste Management

Parongpong is the name of the village where I live now. I'm an organic farmer, and entrepreneurs. In sundanese local language the words means "zero, nothing, empty". People always said that, there's nothing there to do or works for. Yet, a lot of irresponsible industries and tourism had change Parongpong from farms to dump, like many place in Indonesia. My dream is to promote Parongpong as a zero waste community. The nearest goal is to build Parongpong Recycle Study Centre, to educate people from all class that waste is not the problem. But our habit about waste need to change.

Our partner GOL already started the prototype of the machines since 2009. Their website http://www.golimbah.com/ explain how does the machine works to our clients. Parongpong has been creating brand awareness since September 2017, we're joining many festivals to inspired our potential clients and partner. The last one would be happiness festival 2018 which sponsored by the UN https://www.facebook.com/HappinessFestival.ID/ .D

We thrive to design system by providing tools and facilities ensuring local business and society able to recycle, reduce, reuse their own waste to achieved self sustain zero waste community.
