A Social initiative driven by Children to say no to Plastic Bags in Bali by 2008
School students from Green School Bali, Sisters Isabel (12) & Melati Wijsen (14) are on a mission to ban the use, sale and production of plastic in their homeland Bali. Listen to the sisters talk about some of the amazing initiatives they are developing here on the island.
Their campaign Bye Bye Plastic Bags has caught the attention of the likes of Ban Ki-Moon and Jane Goodall, and has been key in increasing awareness around garbage disposal. L
The pictures are shocking: Bali’s most iconic beaches are littered in heaps of plastic rubbish. It’s hard to imagine tourists sunbathing and surfers catching waves amidst the debris, but the monsoon has brought a tidal wave of trash to the island’s shores — and this year, it’s worse than ever.
But there’s a ray of hope: Activists on the ground are working hard to get Bali’s governor I Made Mangku Pastika to ban plastic bags plastic, and they’re seeing first successes. Now it’s up to our community to make it happen!
