R.O.L.E Foundation Partners with Danish Embassy for Zero Waste to Ocean Program

Here’s a “disturbing” piece of trivia: there are 1,800,000 cubic meters of waste being dumped illegally per year in Bali, and during the rainy season, these solid wastes—plastic, trace metals, artificial rubber, styrofoam, etc—will make their way onto the beaches. That’s why the Bali-based R.O.L.E Foundation has created the Zero Waste to Oceans program and recently they partnered with the Danish Embassy in Jakarta for a two-week awareness campaign concerning the waste challenges in Bali and its impact on tourism, fishing industry, and public health. “Let’s respect Bali island and make its seas, reefs, beaches, and lands beautiful again,” says ROLE.
