In keeping with the Maya Ubud Resort & Spa’s steadfast commitment to inculcate sustainable environmental practice in their business and surrounding community, on Saturday, February 18, 2012, the Resort engaged 66 students and their 7 teachers from a nearby grammar school – SDN 3Pejeng Kawan – for a day of education about waste management.
With kind support from Gita International Yoga
of Melbourne, the Resort’s Green Team
shared a video and slide presentation with the children and teachers on waste management techniques and procedures. Putting theory into practice, the educational sessions were followed by a cleaning blitz of the schoolyard and surrounding areas during which 97 kilograms of trash and plastic were collected for careful disposal later.
On the same occasion, the Resort installed two large garbage containers in the schoolyard to permit the separation of organic and non-organic wastes, together with separate canvas bags for dry garbage and plastic collection. The Resort has also established a schedule for the weekly collection of garbage followed by its proper disposal at the Temesi Recycling Plant
During the visit, the school was also presented with waste bins, and wall clocks for all their classrooms and teacher’s office. The teaching area also received wall maps of Bali Province, Indonesia, ASEAN countries and the world.
At the end of a fun day of activities and learning, the students were provided milk and snacks and parcels of stationery for use in their academic studies.
