Olivier Pouillon
Founder of The Bali Recycling Company

With more than 20 years of experience in the environmental field, including a job in solid waste management in Indonesia, American-born, long-term Bali resident Olivier lives and breathes waste. Believing “proper waste management is essential to our ecosystems health, economy and future”, he established the pioneering The Bali Recycling Company in Ubud in late 2010 – Bali’s first fully licensed waste recycling facility and hazardous waste processor. Of its “zero waste” philosophy, Olivier says: “There’s no such thing as waste, everything is a potential resource!” An example of this is Bali Recycling’s innovative upcycling program which makes better use of waste materials by producing beautiful glasses from discarded glass bottles; stunning bags, pouches and textiles from unwanted plastic bags, and much much more.
