As part of their holiday activities, three guests from Singapore participated in our interactive tour of “Think Global, Act Local” at Zero Waste to Oceans – Community Environment and Skills Center in Sawangan, Nusa Dua Bali.

They first gathered in our small bale to get introduced to R.O.L.E. Foundation and its missions. They learned about environmental problems and its solutions in our center. They learned about deforestation and problems related to oceans like coral bleaching and plastic pollution. They also did soap upcycling where they could experience the whole process from chopping the soaps until wrapping them up. They also learned that we are trying our best to reduce chemical waste to go to the ocean and also sharing to those who in need by our “S.O.A.P.” program.

They also learned about waste management where we can simply divide the waste into two categories. The non-organic waste, we can recycle some of them or reuse it. For the organic ones, we can make a compost out of it. Then they tried to put green matters and brown matters to our compost, learning about the “lasagna” technique.

Went to weaving station, they met three staffs that are responsible for weaving the scarves. They tried to make a scarf with rangrang pattern, the scarf that needs up to 10 days to be made. Quite complicated, but of course fun!

At the end of the tour enjoyed traditional cakes, tropical fruits, jamu kunyit asam, and lemongrass tea. All funds raised during this interactive training will go to the environmental education of women and local children of Bali.
