In cooperation with the German company Stoneline (https://www.stoneline.de/en/about-us), we are happy to launch a new environmental project aimed at awaring the young generations in Bali to the necessary protection of their environment. It will consist in proposing to the 5 primary schools of the district of Pekutatan and their 496 pupils a drawing contest on a given topic linked to the protection of their environment. 3 winners per school will be rewarded by an independent jury, while a reusable strong bag, aimed at reducing the use of plastic, will be distributed to each and every family for their shopping. The first step has been accomplished recently with the distribution of decorative flowers and plants which will adorn the gardens of the schools. We will regularly keep you posted of the progress of this project.
For the second consecutive year, the World Cleanup Day took place in Bali like everywhere in the world, on September 21st. Born from an Estonian initiative in 2018 and from previous successes of global cleaning efforts, the World Cleanup Day is aimed at combating the global solid waste problem, including the marine debris. In Bali this year, 9 cities held a cleaning activity simultaneously from 7 to 9 o’clock on this date. As shown on the pictures, some of our team did participate to the cleaning of Delod Berawah Beach (near by the buffalo race circuit). It was initiated by the Indonesian national army, government, tourism actors, environmentalists and the civil society, in order to keep Bali green, clean and free from plastic waste. Needless to say that it should not happen once a year, but everyday, as we do in Dajuma!
