The experience of the Artemis team in participating in volunteer activities with WCUD Indonesia has been tremendous. It is a journey that has an impact on both the environment and ourselves as individuals. How hundreds of people gathered in one location along the river to pick up plastic waste. For individuals as volunteers, we feel it is beneficial to care more about the surrounding environment from the negative effects of using plastic and single-use materials. – Irvandias
