Earth Day, this year on April 22, is an annual event to mark the anniversary of the modern environmental movement. As part of the monthly program and to honor this day, R.O.L.E. Foundation cleaned up Tanjung Benoa Beach with 27 participants. The team collected 77.9 kg of non-organic waste.

The Beach Condition

The participants cleaned up the shoreline of Tanjung Benoa Beach behind PT. Pacific Bahari Bali. The shore condition was quite clean, but there was a lot of waste among the seaweeds. The parking lot area was also dirty. 

Waste Collected

In one hour, R.O.L.E Foundation’s staff and volunteers, together with the Bali WISE students collected 77.9 kg of non-organic waste. After the cleanup, the waste was separated and the biggest amount was residue (23.2%), consisting of tiny dirty pieces, followed by soft plastics (21.2%), glass (17.9%), and rubbers and slippers (17.9%).

There is no planet B

Planet Earth is our only home, and Nature is for all species, not only humans, but humans are the only species that produces waste and threaten other species. Not only on Earth Day, but always: let’s spread awareness on how important it is to preserve our planet! Thanks to B1G1 for supporting this cleanup.
