Vital Pet Life's specific impact program is Project Laut Yang Tenang, whose goal it is to stop ocean bound plastic waste from ending up in Indonesia's coasts while protecting its fragile ecosystems and biodiversity. The project focuses on recycling low-value, flexible LDPE and HDPE plastics, typically ignored by local waste collectors due to low market value, while creating dignified livelihoods for informal waste aggregators and workers through safe working conditions and fair wages.
