The Eco Club students at SMA1 Semarapura organized their first recycling event last Friday for the 11th grade class of 200 students. They created a very compelling powerpoint presentation. The school principal strongly promoted the event…and I did my thing as Head Cheerleader of Keep Bali Beautiful.
Our message was simple. The plastic and other trash from 4 million Balinese and a like number of tourists is killing this beautiful island. It’s poisoning the air and water, killing the animals and will eventually destroy the economy as the tourists opt for cleaner places to vacation.
We then ask who can solve this problem. The students looked around at their teachers, their principal and finally at one another. We told them they are the solution to Bali’s pollution problems and they could Keep Bali Beautiful.
