Bali Cantik Tanpa Plastik (BCTP) / Plastic-Free Bali (PFB) is a waste prevention campaign, established in 2007, that aims to reduce plastic waste in Bali through strategic campaigns and creative education. Our message is simple - bring your own bag when shopping. Single-use plastic bags are used for just some minutes and can pollute the environment for over 1000 years
We aim to inspire a social movement of aware and responsible consumers who refuse plastic bags, and encourage others to do the same.
PFB/BCTP is currently engaged in the following areas and activities:
• Consumers: including holding booths and workshops at Bali events and education campaigns targeting Bali´s 3 million tourists per year
• Community: including projects in schools and the Balinese community and workshops to engage high-school students
• Retailers: such as our partnership with one of Indonesia´s largest supermarket chains (2009/2010)
• Regulation: PFB/BCTP with Coalition established the Responsible Retailer Roundtable (B3R) to lobby for stronger waste reduction measures
• Plastic Bag-Free Ubud: partnering with Ubudian businesses and organisations to make the home of PFB plastic bag-free
• Lobbying: including launching the "Eco-Friendly Alternatives for Retailers", a guideline of alternatives to plastics for businesses, developed in consultation with government and retailer
• Providing plastic bag alternatives: including our range of Plastic-Free Bali reusable bags
Tina Stockport is the Marketing and Strategic Communications Coordinator of Bali Cantik Tanpa Plastik / Plastic-Free Bali.
