Be a Trash Hero: Why It Matters
A Collaboration with Trash Hero Bali Chapter
Trash has been an issue due to the rapid growth of the tourism industry in Ubud – Bali.
Ubud is an all-around destination with its scenic natural landscape and rich cultural atmosphere. Plastic waste has been piling up, fueled by a lack of infrastructure or education to deal with it.
Be a Trash Hero: The Experience
We Clean, We Educate, We Change
In partnership with Trash Hero Ubud Chapter, we invite our guests to participate in the cleanup activity and gain an understanding of the need to reduce and manage waste better.
We offer an experience where we empower our guests to maintain their fitness while they enjoy the uniqueness of the destination and engage with locals through the activity.
The activity will start with a Trash Hero expert representative to explain about different types of waste and the impact of waste on our environment, and share best practices on how the participant can contribute to waste reduction starting from their household. The location of the activity would be around the hotel or the village nearby to give a direct impact to local communities.
During the cleanup activity, the participant will have the opportunity to interact and learn from the expert about the recycling process based on the different types of trash the participant found.
At the end of the cleanup activity, Trash Hero will wrap up the activity and hand over the certificate of participation for the guest as a keepsake. The activity is available twice a month.
Be a Trash Hero: The Impact
Big Things Start from Small Action
Our mission is to bring communities and guests together to clean and reduce waste.
The participants pick up trash and they motivate others to do the same. By spending a few hours together picking up trash, people gain a profound understanding of the consequences of being careless about waste, connecting environmental values with hands-on experience of the impact that trash has on the local and global environment backed up with information and provided by Trash Hero Ubud Chapter.
This program motivates people to become Trash Heroes in their everyday lives. With consistent positive messaging and the philosophy of “small steps”, we remove the barriers to change. We believe that every one of us can be a Trash Hero.
