SEPTEMBER 2017. BALI – INDONESIA. Bali Hotels Association recently joined the International Coastal Clean Up day by organizing an island-wide clean ups on Saturday, 16 September 16, 2017 covering 11 areas and involving 2,586 participants from 145 hotels, 4 schools and other business units.
The International Clean Up Day was initiated by the Ocean Conservancy since 1986 and has now over 12 million people participating annually worldwide. This year, Bali Hotels Association has managed to mobilize its members and business stakeholders to participate by cleaning up major tourist areas in Bali including Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua, Jimbaran, South Kuta Beach, Kuta – Legian, Seminyak, Sanur, Berawa, Tabanan and all the way to Ubud and collected over 1,500 kilograms of trash.
“Being an island, Bali has thousands of kilometers of coastline and we do have an ongoing battle with wastes that washed up onto our shores,” explained Ricky Putra, the Chairman of Bali Hotels Association, “Our members actively organize their own beach clean-up periodically and we are taking this opportunity to involve other business units as well to build more awareness on the issue and create a better synergy with all of the business stakeholders. This is an issue that requires everyone’s active involvement.”
This is the 5th year for the association to participate as an organization in the worldwide act, growing from only 12 participants to 151 participants. Bali Hotels Association also actively collaborates with other organizations to create greener efforts that can be adapted by each of its members. One of the programs that the association has developed is the waste management system to create a better system for a hotel to adapt by enforcing the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) concept in hopes to achieve a “Zero Waste to Landfill” goal. The association also encourages its members to obtain green certifications – nationally and internationally - by appointed licensees and have their businesses assessed and achieved a more environmentally friendly practice.
