Keep Bali Beautiful
The idyllic island of Bali is drowning in plastic pollution, and it is killing our land, sea and wildlife. Please join Keep Bali Beautiful’s mission to support village recycling operations and environmental education.
Our mission is to Keep Bali Beautiful by partnering with schools and villages to recycle plastic pollution.
Keep Bali Beautiful is a grassroots recycling program that partners with local schools and villages to build a sustainable recycling network, as well as to change the beliefs and habits that lead to pollution.
Keep Bali Beautiful and our volunteers operate recycling stations, storage centers, and reliable recycling pick-up in the eastern part of Bali. Most importantly, we are slowly building an environmental ethic among young people in Bali by partnering with schools to create EcoClubs, educating students on the importance of recycling and what it takes to Keep Bali Beautiful.

“This intimate tour has everything to offer if you are looking for something off the beaten path….I would highly recommend it to any earth lovers out there or to anyone wanting to connect with Bali. All day felt like a real authentic Bali experience away from the tourist traps. The team took care of us all day, taking us to the temple and guiding us through their beautiful ceremony, the beach and the recycling centre, then we ate a lovely meal together and made recycled key chains. I really enjoyed doing the beach clean, I felt a real sense of purpose, and the friendly team made it very enjoyable.Chloe & Charlotte
