Bali Hotels Raise Funds for Recycling Center

Bali Hotel Association Raises Rp. 200 Million for Gianyar Temesi Recycling Center.


(4/13/2006)



On a memorable Saturday evening in late March, a group of almost 100 guests traveled to the dramatic dining pavilion of the Chedi Ubud where, surrounded by a moonlit rice terrace, they enjoyed a 5-course gourmet dinner prepared by three of Bali's leading chefs.

Commencing with a sunset champagne reception that started at 6 p.m., the diners gathered not only to enjoy a memorable meal but to also raise funds for the Temesi Recycling Center located in Gianyar regency. A pilot project with potential wider applications across greater Southeast Asia, the Temesi Recycling Center manages to sort, process and recycle waste materials, reducing the trash that threatens to choke the island by a factor of almost 90%.

Following cocktails and before dinner, David Kuper a Swiss chemist and the project planner of the Rotary Ubud Project gave a brief, informative presentation on the Center and it's potential to grow to handle all the waste materials generated in Gianyar, and eventually Bali as a whole. The fund-raising evening was convened to provide critical bridging funds to keep the center in operation while awaiting potential funding support under the Kyoto Protocols.

The lavish dinner - designed and cooked by Nam Nguyen of The Legian, Stuart Blair of Alila Ubud and Gary Tyson of Amandari, was accompanied by a range of outstanding wines all sponsored by local food suppliers.

As a result of the evening's festivities, during which Bali Discovery's Jack Daniels served as Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer, in excess of US$20,000 was raised for the recycling center. Furniture, privately catered dinners, designer clothing, fine works of art, and exciting hotel stays were among the items bid upon between courses.

The total funds raised were sufficient to ensure that the Temesi Recycling Center will remain in operation for the next year and will permit the purchase of a shredder that will assist compost production at the Center.
