Archipelago International Takes Part in Bali's Biggest Beach Clean-up 2020

18 February 2020

Bali, Indonesia, 15 February 2020 - Known as the Island of the Gods and loved by adventure travelers, surfers, divers and nature enthusiasts from all over the world, Bali is home to some of the most spectacular white-sand beaches mother earth has ever created. Unfortunately, reckless human behavior has taken its toll on the paradise, polluting the Island's iconic beaches with plastic waste, cigarette butts, glass and other rubbish.

One Island One Voice started a beach cleaning initiative in 2016 named 'Bali's Biggest Beach Clean-Up', perfectly addressing the situation, creating awareness and calling everyone to get together and get their hands dirty - in the name of nature. Four years later, this is considered a big movement and the most significant beach-cleaning activity in Bali, supported by the local communities, businesses and island visitors alike. The number of participants has doubled every year, attracting as many as 15,000 people during the most recent event on February 15th this year. 

Archipelago International proudly took part in this event with 250 team members from a total of 15 hotels helping collect frightening 20 kilograms of beach waste, including plastic straws, food wrappers, bottle caps, cigarette butts, various sharp metal and glass objects, rubber, cables - the list goes on. The focus area this year was the beautiful Matahari Terbit beach in Sanur.

'As the largest hotel group in the Archipelago, we have an enormous responsibility to reduce the impact on the environment, and as such we have implemented a number of sustainability policies across all our hotels. Small actions often have the biggest impact and One Island One Voice is a perfect example as they have impressively managed to mobilize the young and the old, locals and visitors alike, to join forces, clean up the mess, create awareness and save wildlife. The famous saying goes, that the earth is what we all have in common, thus we call out to everyone to join the movement and save the planet!' said Faisal Tjandraatmaja, VP of Human Resorces at Archipelago International.
