We believe that development can never stop. It’s always room for improvements so we’ve extended our reusable water bottle plan and basically we have more than doubled our numbers. What does this mean ? it means that during our daily scuba diving activities we are now saving more than 50.000 plastic bottles every year.
How are we doing this ? in a way, it’s simple, in another way, it requires financial investment and perhaps a little bit of common sense as well.
Considering the large numbers of guests we are pushing on a daily basis, when we first started our reusable water bottle program it seemed obvious that with some investment now, we can earn more later. But is only the business side of the story.
From an environmental point of view, our calculations at the beginning showed we could be saving the world from more than 15.000 plastic bottles every year and that sounded like a very good number for us.
Now, recalculating everything and putting up an even bigger investment in these reusable water bottles, we have more than doubled everything… so here we are!
The plastic issue in Bali and specially in Indonesia is a significant one if not the biggest in the world. Indonesia is known as being the number one plastic producing country in the world but that should come as a surprise when we think about the total number of the population.
However, there are a lot of projects in development now and many created by the Indonesian government to decrease plastic usage and production as everybody has seen the devastating effects in our oceans and our health.
Ending the article on a positive note, yes we are continuously thinking and developing solutions to help protect Mother Nature.
