About Bye Bye Plastic Bag
Bye Bye Plastic bag is an NGO driven by youth to say NO to plastic bags.
How Bye Bye Plastic Bag Started
Melati (17) and Isabel (15) Wijsen started Bye Bye Plastic Bags at the ages of 10 and 12, after being inspired by a lesson in school about significant people, like Nelson Mandela, Lady Diana, and Mahatma Ghandi. The sisters returned home that day and asked themselves, ‘What can we do as children living in Bali, NOW, to make a difference?’ Bye Bye Plastic Bags was born in 2013 and has now grown into a well known international movement of inspiration, youth empowerment, and of course, saying NO to plastic bags.
