Committed to Keeping it Green!

Making good on their commitment to continue raising environmental awareness about keeping Bali clean and to enhance their recycling efforts, Finns now have their own reusable shopping bags! With some assistance from Dave at Keep Bali Clean, Finns asked them to help print and produce 500 Tas Pasar! (shopping bag in Bahasa!) so that they could do their part in the quest to rid the island of plastic bags.

You might remember the powerful local initiative, Bye Bye Plastic Bags that was founded by two school students, Melati and Isabel Wisjen in 2013? Over the course of the last few years, the project has gained incredible momentum with an international following, an invitation to London TED Talks, a team of volunteers across the island and a confirmation from the Governor of Bali to rid the island of plastic bags by 2018.

Keep Bali Clean is another well known project aimed at reducing the island’s prolific problem with littering and rubbish. By encouraging consumers and suppliers to adopt reusable TAS PASAR bags, they not only save money but also the environment!

Dave from Keep Bali Clean runs a business called Easytees, a Balinese/Australian owned factory with over twenty years experience supplying clients with handcrafted T-shirts. Easytees take great pride in the knowledge that they set and maintain high standards with regard to operating a professional, legal, and socially and environmentally conscious business. Despite the name, ‘Easytees’ they also produce a wide range of items such as hoodies, polo shirts, shirts, walk shorts, board shorts, swimwear, caps, and of course, bags!

In keeping with the environmental theme and Keep Bali Clean colours, Finns asked for a green Tas Pasar with Finns Logo and Keep Bali Clean’s Logo on it. These reusable and environmentally friendly bags will be passed to suppliers for both Finns Beach Club and Finns Recreation Club so that they can deliver fruits, vegetables and other supplies in those reusable bags, rather than in plastic bags we see so frequently in Bali.

Plans are already in motion to have more bags made and distribute them to Finns staff, to reduce the amount of plastic bags they use every day. It’s Finns hope that this practice will continue, become commonplace and extend to their families and friends through this effort as well, leading by example, and by asking the staff to pass the message on.
