The Nyamplung tree is a valuable source of biofuel via its seeds. Suitable to harsh mixed-forest environments, the trees prevent erosion and provide important windbreaks needed for beach preservation and assist in reducing carbon in the atmosphere.

The Hard Rock tree-planting program ran from 4:00 pm until sunset with 100 management and staff participating.

The Hotel’s efforts were supported by I Wayan Wijana Chief of Kuta District, I Wayan Daryana Chief of Kuta Village and MA.A. Ngurah Tresna Chief of Kuta Beach Security.

“Our aim is to encourage individuals to take responsibility for the environment through a range of affordable actions. Climate change and other environmental challenges impact every corner and community on the planet And it is truly impressive to see so many communities responding to the challenge with grassroots enthusiasm and commitment. In this context, the Earth Day Campaign is playing a leadership role by providing practical action to make a difference.” said Darmawan, Director of Finance of Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
