The use of plastic in society has become a significant need, ranging from being used for plastic bags,   bottles, plates, straws, and so on. Plastic excels in lightweight, water resistance, cost-effectivity, durability, and protecting goods from dirt, shock, and impact. Plastic is currently the material of choice in various activities, from carrying, packaging, and distributing goods. On the other hand, plastic waste is a major environmental problem as it is not readily biodegradable. Efforts to reduce the use of plastic have been carried out with the motto of the 3R program (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle). The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) stated that in 2022, Indonesia's plastic waste would reach 66 million tons annually. The results of the LIPI study 2018 estimated that around 0.26-0.59 million tons of this plastic flowed into the ocean. The survey results from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia reported that 16.91% of waste in Indonesia is plastic, and the volume increased by 0.5% compared to the previous year. This empowerment program aims to provide residents with an understanding of innovative work products in the form of processed products from plastic waste. This activity raises public awareness about the importance of using plastic waste to create products worth selling. This activity was conducted on Friday, 29 July 2022, at the Bukit Cubung restaurant, Jati Rejo Village, Lendah District, Kulon Progo Regency. A total of 30 participants attended the activity.
