Tiza Mafira

Executive Director, Gerakan Indonesia Diet Kantong Plastik (Plastic Bag Diet Movement), Indonesia

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.
