Bali's Biggest Beach Cleanup 2018

Bali's Biggest Beach Cleanup 2018

One Island One Voice / Satu Pulau Satu Suara organizes BALI'S BIGGEST CLEAN-UP February 24th 2018 On February 24th the island came together for a truly amazing event in Bali’s history. Lead by local heroes, Isabel and Melati and the Bye Bye Plastic Bags org. Coordinated a deep crew of locals and ex-pats young and old who mobilized to clean surface waste from local beaches and villages. From our perspective here at Indosole, we are so happy to be a part of this development. We have been living in Canggu since 2009 and witnessed a trash problem in Bali well before then. For years, there have been very few people making effort to address the problem. We have chipped in what we can, but it has never been enough to make a big impact. We are thankful of the effort and execution by the Bye Bye Plastic Bags crew / One Island One Voice and now looking forward to having us collectively focus on the solutions that are being made vs. the problems that are so obvious in Indonesia.  We have a long way to go but together we can make a difference every day.  Here are the stats on Bali’s biggest clean-up 2018: 15,000+ people 60 locations island wide 50+ tons of waste collected WHERE DID THE TRASH GO?

"I didn't notice it before," he said, "but I think this might have a defect?" Hearing the word 'defect' we...
