Nesya’s Little Actions to go Green
I hope everyone is doing well despite the pandemic.
My name is Nesya and I am camp leader of EIC 2012-2014. I was in Japan until 2018 and then I moved back to my home country, Indonesia!
It has been 2 years since I came home and although I miss Japan so much, I would like to share with you a little bit about what I have been doing in Indonesia.
In Indonesia, I am now working for an Indonesian technology company. Even though it’s an Indonesian company, I mostly use English at work. One of the directors is half Japanese, so sometimes I also practice my Japanese with him!
Ever since I got back to Indonesia, I also reunited with my senior from Ritsumeikan University. She is very inspiring because she shares a lot on how to safe our world through many activities and most of them are very doable in our daily lives. She also founded a company that makes beeswax wraps that replaces cling wrap (サランラップ) so that we can reduce the amount of garbage in our daily lives. Look at the pattern that she makes, it is inspired by Japanese culture, like those you can find on the Yukata! I am now using this on a daily basis when I need to wrap leftover bread, vegetables and fruits!
These days, Jakarta has been on curfew because of COVID19 Pandemic breakout so I stay at home most of the time. In May, I joined an EIC Cafe event via Zoom and met some new and old friends!
Also, because I mostly stay at home, I have started to do gardening. I am growing basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary and mint! These are herbs that I usually use for cooking. Do you know which herbs are which? Take a guess!
