They say we can not imagine how much waste and plastic young kids from Bali are collecting and putting away from dumpsters. Without these volunteers Bali would not even have a chance. People dump their waste in a big valley, there is no measure or enforcement, to stop them from doing this at the moment. There needs to be a solution on a global scale, to reform the way recycling is currently done in Bali. That valley needs to be cleaned out, so the Earth and nature can live and breath again. This was in Candidasa, a little town close to Ubud, but some more touristy areas, such as Kuta, the surf paradise are even more polluted.
Why this is important?
This petition will help to create a law that will forbid the use, sales and productions of plastic bags on the island of Bali, if we get 1 million signatures.
This petition will be delivered to the Governor of Bali, Mister Pastika, and hopefully result in a waste management reform on the island.

PlastikDetox Bali is a campaign to reward shops and cafes that are taking genuine efforts to reduce plastic bag use.
