Banyan Tree Ungasan Road Clean Up

Prior opening Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali, all associates were invited to participate in removing trash and debris scattered along the way to the main gate of the resort, caused by construction and the waste disposal from the local population.

More than 30 associates from JG1 to Excom showed up in the event that was held on 6 November 2009, in the middle of a warm afternoon (30°C). Carrying large trash bags, and equipped with disposable hand gloves, associates started the 1km walk from the main lobby down the road at about 3.30pm, starting to collect many different type of non-organic rubbish such as beverage containers, plastic bags and cans, along the way to the main gate. For over an hour and a half, associates managed to gather more than 10 large trash bags full of rubbish.

As part of the CSR program we educated associates on proper waste management practices, to strive the importance of regularly maintaining the cleanliness of the resort and surrounding areas. This road clean up is the first one in many of upcoming similar activities in order to raise awareness among associates and the local community on environmental cleanliness, hygiene, and waste management.
