The Zero Waste Bali Story
Welcome to Zero Waste Bali. As a Mum of 2 I really want there to be a future for my kids and theirs. Living in Bali since 2011 I really have seen the damage that single use plastic is doing to the beautiful Island of Bali. Through my adventures with my family in Bali we have encountered some beautiful scenery, swam with the awesome marine life and enjoyed many great times. On a recent family snorkelling trip I was seriously shocked at the amount of plastic that was in the ocean's of Bali. The amount of rubbish that is found in the rivers, along side of the roads and in the beautiful mountain regions of Bali are so disturbing.
From the moment I witnessed first hand the amount of plastic floating in the ocean I wanted to make a difference! Bali deserves to be enjoyed as does the rest of our planet. With that in mind I opened Bali and Indonesia's first Bulk Food Store. A health food store where you can come and take what you need and also order all your groceries and eco products online and get delivered straight to your door.
I encourage customers to bring their own containers, mesh bags or jars to fill and to reuse what they currently have to help reduce the plastic waste problem in Bali. With the current situation of the earth drowning in plastic it is imperative that we act now and make simple changes. I am thrilled to be part of the solution not only through the bulk food store but also educating students in schools, hosting and speaking at events and also consulting to business’ and hotels and villas in Bali on how they too can make a difference. Every small act will have an impact and this is something I love being part of!
I have made some simple changes in my work life and home life that I hope will make a change to my children’s future and there’s. I love sharing what I do via my monthly newsletters and via social media. In my daily life I cook healthy whole food and seasonal recipes and share these with you too. I do my best to clean my home with non chemical detergents and have been doing my best to minimise possessions.
Going zero waste isn’t about being perfect and having no waste. It is your own personal journey about reducing the amount of waste you produce. Being mindful about your consumption and purchases and living as simply as you can. This will vary with each and every one of us however together we can make a difference.
Thank you for joining me on this journey of less waste. Whether you make one change, shop with us at Zero Waste Bali or enjoy reading the blog or posts on social media, I hope to inspire you to Be The Change.
