In the presentation, Mora provided information about how the problem of single-use plastic waste was being dealt with in parts of Indonesia, especially Bali and how the vision and mission of Mudfish No Plastic was part of the solution. Mora stressed several important points in her presentation, such as that the actions that a community can take in their daily life has a big effect on reducing the consumption and disposal of single-use plastic.
Mora also discussed "Education Without Solutions, Makes Frustration," the reality, that there are many people in Indonesia who do not understand the importance of reducing their use of single-use plastic because of its bad impact on the environment. She explained that the way that Mudfish No Plastic serves the community is by providing both education and practical solutions.
