Cleaning up Bali Beaches
Bali has geared up to try and get rid of its number one concern, Pollution. With the Bali Clean & Green program, thousands of Balinese took part in cleaning up approximately 50 beaches for beached trash on August 27. This clean up comes in ahead of a ‘Clean Up Bali day’, which is set for September 20, to coincide with ‘Clean Up the World’ weekend.
The coordinator Bali Clean & Green’s, Nunie Kneip said “We are trying to generate greater awareness, having locals and visitors connected and aware about the danger garbage poses, especially plastics”
Bali is part of Indonesia’s archipelago, it is easy for rubbish and trash from one island to wash away to the coast of another islands, and the “trash vortex,” an threatening floating garbage pile almost the size of Texas that floats in the North Pacific, presents its own part to the problem.
South Asia CEO for Rip Curl, Jeff Anderson ”We have a strong determination for environmental responsibility and encourage our crew to participate in preservation with everything we do”. A global surf manufacturer also said in a statement. “Whether rubbish is washed up from the ocean currents or discarded directly on the island’s beaches, our job is to bring greater awareness to the situation both locally and worldwide”
