Bali, known as the “Island of the Gods,” has only twenty per cent of its indigenous forest remaining after centuries of deforestation.
The island is also facing an ecological disaster caused by the discarding of an estimated 30 million virgin plastic water bottles each month, which is overwhelming the tiny island’s fragile ecosystems.
Bali Water is a sustainable spring water startup with a mission and UNEP commitment under the 1 Trillion tree initiative to plant 10 million trees in Bali by 2030.
This stems from its “One Bottle, One Tree” program, with a contribution from every sale returning to the Bali Green Impact Fund. The fund has partnered the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry and engaged the services of Delloite to measure the impact of planting trees by new drone technology.
We are proud to be launching Bali Water in an innovative plant-based bottle solution, to contribute to a much-needed move away from the reliance of virgin plastic bottles,” said Doerthe Szech, Director of Communications and Creative for Bali Water.
The science shows us that plastic water bottles are suffocating nature and leaking micro plastics into the human body. Bali Water is tackling not only a ecological disaster but a global public health issue which collective collaboration is now crucial.
The bottle, made from renewable resources, with the cap and top made from sugar cane, provides a plant-based alternative to plastic and recycling. This innovative bottle can be repurposed to provide materials for low cost housing or schools in poverty areas in Bali or elsewhere.
“Bali’s eco-systems are interlinked and fragile. This problem is a global challenge and is contributing to climate change. We must act now collaboratively to create long-term sustainable change for the good of the planet.”
A further innovative approach to protecting nature and to reduce the reliance on new resources, Bali Water will soon launch a repurposed glass bottle.
