Tiza Mafira’s legal background combined with her love for the ocean and environment, has catapulted her into the non-profit world where she is now the Executive Director of Gerakan Indonesia Diet Kantong Plastik (GIDKP), or the Indonesia Plastic Bag Diet Movement. Tiza promotes a Reusable Revolution as one of many ways to help address ocean pollution.
GIDKP focuses on policy change to reduce single-use plastics at the source. Its work is done through government engagement, public awareness, and strategic retail collaborations. GIDKP was the first organization in Indonesia to successfully push for a nationwide trial of a charge for plastic carrier bags and the first to provide technical assistance to more than 20 city-governments to ban single-use plastics.
