BACKGROUND

Starting from a sense of wanting to share with others, Parahita was formed. 6 people who wanted a change, they created and built a company and community based on sharing and development.

In Sanskrit, Parahita means “For the benefit of the common man”. Parahita believes that every human is equal and has the right and opportunities to grow in self-actualization and economic value. By committing to their values, Parahita became more than a company. Parahita began to be a community and a home for people who wanted changes in their lives, who wanted to grow fully into their potential.

The Covid-19 Pandemic has a major impact on life in Bali. The Bali economy depended on the tourism sector, most businesses in Bali such as hotels and restaurants forced to close their businessess and people started losing their jobs.

Parahita took the initiative to create a new jobs opportunities by creating Sustainable Business Projects, namely: Mulung by Parahita.

Creating a circular ecosystem based on community to drive a sustainable an innovative way to manage waste for better environments and lives.

MULUNG

24% of waste in Indonesia are abandoned in nature, 69% compiled in the landfill (final disposal site) in each city without any effective solutions and only 7% of waste in Indonesia is managed.

Together with other environmental activists, Parahita through Mulung program participated in taking a role in waste management for a better environment.

This Mulung program aims to educate people to be more aware of the value of their waste and invite more people to care more in reducing and recycling waste. Mulung provides a digital platform in a cloud-based apps to make it easier for people and related parties in contributing to Mulung programs. An easy way to make your waste at home to be a blessing!

Team up with scavengers throughout Indonesia, Parahita Mulung built a recycling unit employed and carried out by scavengers and their families. The aim is to increase the rate of waste collection through efficient networks, thus maximizing their income, while providing health services, and a safe work environment for them.

Through Mulung projects, Parahita encouraged scavengers to develop more through capital fund and assistance such as; standardize the sorting of recycled materials, management, and finance into MSMEs owned to create responsibilities and sustainable development. The focus is to redesign the old broken Waste Management system into Bali’s Green Circular Economy (Ecosystem base on community).

Mulung developed technology-based platform and systems for stakeholders in waste management, from households/individuals, scavengers/collectors, waste banks, collectors, sorters, to recycling center and goods manufactures.

Anak Agung Ngurah Kakarsana

“During this pandemic, Bali’s tourism has decreased drastically, the enthusiasm of the residents has dropped. I, as Panglingsir Puri Ageng Blahbatuh, would like to share a little hope with the residents of Blahbatuh District, Gianyar Regency and of course more broadly all Balinese by participating in initiating the “Bali Green Circular Economy” movement and at the same time as the honorary consultant of MULUNG by Parahita which is engaged in the circular economy through waste management. MULUNG takes advantage of the potential that exists in Bali, which is plastic waste that has accumulated, even increased during the pandemic. With this, it will not only improve the people’s economy, it is also good for nature and the environment as the embodiment of Tri Hita Karana. People will be excited again to work, new hope will grow.” (Panglingsir Puri Ageng Blahbatuh, Anak Agung Ngurah Kakarsana)

Puri Ageng Blahbatuh is one of the biggest and oldest castles in Gianyar. The beauty and splendor of Puri Ageng Blahbatuh is an attraction for foreign and domestic tourists. The history of Puri Ageng Blahbatuh is mostly written in the Lontar which is sacred by the Balinese. Now the ruler of Puri Ageng Blahbatuh is Anak Agung Alit Kakarsana of the Djelantik breed whose ancestor was a warlord figure from the Sri Kesari Warmadewa dynasty, the area of power of Puri Ageng Blahbatuh in ancient times reached the Batur Kintamani area. He is an active figure in the field of Cultural and Environmental Preservation. The practice of the Tri Hita Karana concept became a basis for him to realize a clean and advanced Bali but did not eliminate the cultural values that had been handed down by his ancestors. Puri Ageng Blahbatuh has often carried out and supported movements that are good for Nature and have a direct impact on the Balinese people, one of them is through MULUNG by Parahita which is
supported by The Royal Bali Foundation to address the plastic waste emergency issue facing Bali today.
