Samadi April Happenings
How about in April we all pay a little bit of extra attention to our habits related to plastic? As lovers of our Island we are sad to see too much non organic waste being consumed and left as waste thrown into nature.
This has now become a HUGE problem!!
As we know plastic and other non organic materials are not easy to recycle and sometimes not at all possible.We invite you to bring attention to the following.
- The Use of Plastic bags – when shopping say NO to the plastic bag, ask if they have a carton box, paper bags, or even better always have a bag handy to put your shopping in.
- Plastic Bottles – avoid buying plastic water bottles when and if possible. Try to fill your bottle up from a fill up station, we have one in Samadi, Bali Buddha offers them and many more. Bottles can be purchased in stainless steel glass be used over and over. We don’t recommend plastic bottles as well for the off shed of micro plastics.
- Take away containers for food and coffee made out of styrofoam is one of the most problematic materials, as these are not at all recycled. Maybe bring your own container if you are taking take away from the restaurant, or even better tell the management that they should change to sustainable take away boxes. Yes they do exist, we use them inSamadi thanks to Avani Eco.
- Say no to plastic straws. Do you really need to drink your drink from a straw? Solution: Buy a bamboo straw, glass straw, or stainless steel straw offered across the island (also in Samadi) and carry it with you if you prefer your drink from a straw.
Every problem has a solution!
