IOPWhy do people ignore the ‘plastic bag diet’ campaign? Indonesian consumers perspective

B. S. Wijaya, Prima Mulyasari Agustini, Mirana Hanathasia, Dianingtyas M. Putri & A. H. Sutawidjaya

Abstract

As an effort to minimize the climate change impact, reducing plastic waste is urgently needed. Unfortunately, so far this effort has not yielded maximal results, even though the ‘plastic bag diet’ campaign has been intensified. This paper interrogates the reason why Indonesian consumers/shoppers disregarded and did not even care about the campaign. Using Focus Group Discussion, the authors discussed with two groups of different shoppers, namely the regular shoppers and non-regular shoppers. The discussion is divided into three topics. First, the habit of using plastic shopping bags. Second, awareness of avoiding the use of plastic shopping bags. Third, the possibility to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle. The results show that both regular and non-regular shopper groups do not mind paying 200IDR for plastic shopping bags because it is financially not detrimental, and they are reluctant to bring their shopping bags. Besides being troublesome, some of the participants also considered it old-fashioned. However, non-regular shoppers tend to have an awareness of environmental preservation better than regular shoppers. Therefore, we conclude several factors that cause consumers to ignore the ‘plastic bag diet’ campaign, including functional, social, cultural, and structural reasons.

IOPHaze, climate change, and media brand responsibility: how Republika calls for public action in saving the environment through smoggy photojournalism

B. S. Wijaya, Aryo Subarkah Eddyono, Dessy Kania, Ari Kurnia & Suharyanti

DOI: https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1755-1315/423/1/012008

Abstract

When the haze disaster struck several regions in Indonesia (especially Kalimantan and Sumatra) in 2015, various parties tried to get involved in saving the environment and preventing the effects of climate change. Republika Daily, as a leading media brand in Indonesia, showed its social responsibility through a news photo of the smog that adorned its front page. By interviewing the editor-in-chief of Republika in-depth and searching for documents online, we identified the reasons why Republika concerned about the haze disaster as part of the impacts of climate change, why using smoggy photojournalism, and how Republika’s social responsibility regarding the environmental disaster arose. Pathetic facts in the field related to the natural conditions, victims of local communities who had suffered the health problems, and economic losses caused by the haze disaster prompted Republika to not only call-for-public-awareness but also call-for-public-action in overcoming the problems and helping the victims. Therefore Republika used smoggy photojournalism to make the public ‘feel’ the conditions on the ground. This research can inspire other media to participate in saving the environment and increasing climate change awareness through creative and impactful ways.
