Whenever we do ecobrick presentations, or interviews, we talk about how we can live without plastic, and transcend it for good. I am thus super stoked to collaborate with Matoa, an amazing wooden watch company based in Bandung, Indonesia. I’ve been admiring their work for a long time, and have been in contact with Yanuar and Taufik from their marketing department for the last few months.
50 new Ecobrick Trainers are now ready to rock their communities and cities! After three intense days reviewing the principles, science and techniques behind ecobricking our team is now going out into the world and ignite plastic transformation all over Indonesia.
Russell is a regenerative designer and inventor based in Bali, Indonesia. He is one of the leaders of the Ecobrick movement in Indonesia and the world. Inspired by the principles of the mandala and his time amongst the Igorot people he works to implementing deep, trans-formative innovations. With ecobricks, Russell’s creativity is focused on putting ‘waste’ back into cycles of indefinite use. Meanwhile, moving forward with innovations that, using natural materials and ancestral manual traditions, are fully open source, non-capital, and transcend waste, petroleum and factories all together.
