Monthly Beach Cleanups to Create Awareness

Around 80% of all waste in the ocean comes from land and thus, from us consumers. Currently, Indonesia is number 2 in the list of most marine polluting countries in the world. Every year Indonesia produces 6.8 tons of plastic waste, of which 61% is not collected and disposed of safely, of which 40% ends up in the ocean.

R.O.L.E. Foundation organizes monthly beach cleanups in the south area of Bali. After cleaning the beaches, the collected waste is weighted and brought to the ZeroWaste Center, where it’s cleaned and separated according to the type of plastic and whether it can be recycled or not. The aim is to bring as least as possible to the landfill.

By doing beach cleanups, R.O.L.E. Foundation aims to create awareness about alternative ways of dealing with waste, so that the environment in Bali can be improved. We share this knowledge with local communities, local governments and beach cleaners.
