Press Release

Bali, Saturday 21 September 2013 - Hoteliers in Bali in conjunction with Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali proudly instigated the International Coastal Cleanup campaign by clearing debris along Seminyak Beach. BHA members have always been  encouraged to participate and be part of the solution to help protect this popular coastal strip. 

Cleanups alone can’t solve this pollution problem. Nevertheless, the Ocean Trash Index provides a snapshot of what's polluting our oceans so we can work to prevent specific items from reaching the water in the first place.

BHA members together with Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa, Bali, Rotary Club Seminyak, media representatives and a numbers of local schools gathered at 7am to clean the beach for one hour. The "Green Army" covered a distance of 2 kilometers picking up all kinds of rubbish along the way. Plastic bags, containers, cutlery, cans, cigarettes and household waste as well as abandoned shoes and fishing debris were just some of the 7,565 items collected. The total trash haul ended up weighing in at over 142,6 kilograms. 

"Bali Hotel Association is extremely proud to take part in this eco-friendly initiative. It is directly in line with our objective, which is to continuously strive to find ways to support programs that protect the environment," commented Alessandro Migliore, Chairman of the Bali Hotels Association.

We hope that our actions will encourage locals and tourists alike to take note and assume responsibility for the daily consumption of one-time products that effectively contribute to the ocean trash problem. We would very much like to start a ripple effect that gets everyone thinking about this issue,” continues Alessandro.

The International Coastal Cleaning campaign involved members of BHA; Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort & Spa, Anantara Vacation Club Seminyak Bali, The Oberoi Bali, The Royal Beach Seminyak Bali, The Breezes Bali Resort & Spa, Harris Resort Kuta Beach – Bali,  SDN 1Seminyak,  SDN 2 Seminyak, and Rotary Club Seminyak.

Some of the members like Grand Nikko Bali, Mercure Bali Nusa Dua, Maya Ubud Resort & Spa as well as  Aerowisata SANUR BEACH HOTEL – Bali also participate by cleaning up beaches in different locations.
