For now, his ambition is to install 100 trash barriers in Bali’s rivers to catch the plastic waste before it reaches the ocean.

Around 90% of the marine plastic transported by rivers to the ocean originates from just 10 waterways. Indonesia is second only to China as the world’s largest contributor of this kind of waste to the ocean plastic problem – with four of its rivers among the top 20 polluters globally.

Bali’s pollution problem is so bad the government declared a “garbage emergency” in 2018. Tourists arriving on the beach at Sanur, Denpasar, in April that year had to pick their way through the debris.

After the brothers’ two-week expedition rowing down the Citarum, Indonesia deployed military troops to clean up rivers.

Hundred Trash booms installed

Hundred trash booms installed makes a Change has partnered with German tech start-up Plastic Fischer to test out floating trash booms for rivers and smaller trash blocks for streams on Bali’s waterways.

Each day, the waste that’s captured is collected and taken to a mobile sorting station, where it’s washed and weighed before being sent off for recycling.

Trash booms are built using cheap, local materials – stainless steel and galvanized steel wire mesh, suspended from PVC pipes.

Karsten Hirsch, CEO of Plastic Fischer, says, “We are convinced that we need a cheap solution that you can build within a few days, that you can do it on your own and put it into every river in the world.

The launch of the first trash boom on a tributary of the Ayung river, Bali’s most important waterway, was attended by Dr. Ir. Safri Burhanuddin, Coordinating Minister of Maritime affairs, who praised Make A Change and reconfirmed the country’s commitment to solving its plastic pollution problem.

“The government has committed to the UN and the world that we have to reduce at least 70% of the marine litter to the sea by 2025…Gary has made a movement to make sure Indonesia achieves this target.

Garuda Apologizes After Family ‘Detained’ for Grumbling

On Sunday, the passenger took to Twitter to share her experience on a Garuda flight to Denpasar on Jan. 4. Her family, which included her husband and three young children, were flying business class.

The passenger explained that their flight was held back for almost an hour while waiting for the runway to clear at Ngurah Rai International Airport, at which point her eldest child asked to go to the restroom. However, the flight attendant informed her husband that it was not allowed for safety reasons and he returned to his seat.

Her son then began to complain of a stomach ache, which she said led her husband to panic and begin to grumble about Garuda to her. Their unpleasant experience might have ended after the plane finally landed, but the passenger claimed she was stopped from leaving the airport’s baggage lounge at the request of the flight’s captain.

The captain told Aviation Security (Avsec) officers to detain the family, allegedly because the husband had insulted the airline. During the exchange, the passenger made reference to members of Garuda’s board of commissioners, who she claimed to know and would call about the incident.

The captain then walked away and the passenger and her family were met with apologies from the ground crew, who issued a statement acknowledging that the incident was a case of “normal frustration.”

After the passenger’s Twitter thread had gone viral, Garuda Indonesia issued an apology yesterday.

“At this time, Garuda Indonesia is investigating the pilot involved to find out whether or not he has acted beyond his authority while on duty or according to procedure,” Fuad said in a statement received by Coconuts.

“We are in touch with the passenger in our effort to resolve the matter as best as possible.”

Spending Christmas in Bali has been lovely. So far on my journey this year I’ve spent 4 months in Bali, almost 3 months in Mexico, 2 months in California, 1 month in Tonga, and a few weeks in The Maldives, The Bahamas, Hawaii, and Sri Lanka and about to spend a month in Costa Rica. I’ve become a freediving instructor, a yoga teacher, and learned so much about myself and the world and I couldn’t be more grateful and happy and excited for what’s next. It’s hard/weird for me to look at photos of myself from this time last year… I look like such a glamorous badass living in Hollywood as an adult star lol. I often wonder now… “am I still cool????” lol but looking back at this year it makes me realize the real me is just as cool as that LA girl last year. I know if I move back to California I’ll look at pics of me now and wonder the same thing 😂😂 crazy how we always want a different version of ourselves. This new year I want to become even more comfortable in my own skin and enjoy life even more!!!! I can’t wait to vlog my entire 2020 on my YouTube channel… I’m up for the challenge!!!! Love you guys thanks for letting me talk to you for the last 8 years. My social media family means a lot to me & even though people always say social media is evil YOU guys have always been good to me… you’re all so supportive and kind and I enjoy sharing my life with you all. Happy Holidays!!!!!! 😊😊😊😊😊😊 #bali #solofemaletraveler #life #excited #instablog #loveyouguys

Traffic jams expected as thousands of vehicles enter Bali during holiday

Authorities in Bali are expecting more incoming traffic from Java today, following the 20,000 motor vehicles that have reportedly crossed to the island since Dec. 23.

“Maybe you are already experiencing the impact on traffic, especially in Denpasar and Kuta, as well as around the airport,” Adi Sulistyo Utomo from Denpasar Police Traffic Unit said yesterday, as quoted by Tribun.

Adi said the number of vehicles are expected to peak today, most of which are cars coming from Java through Gilimanuk Port in Bali’s Jembrana regency. He added that many are coming from Banyuwangi, East Java, while some originated from Jakarta and Bandung.

The holiday season has always been a busy time for Bali, with more domestic tourists visiting from other parts of Indonesia. Officials said they have observed more holidaymakers coming using private vehicles, especially with the increase of domestic airfare prices over the past year.

“We estimate that there’s been about 40 percent increase [of cars entering to Bali] due to the new toll road and expensive plane tickets, so those who are going on the new year holiday to Bali are taking their own private vehicles,” AA Ngurah Rai Yuda Darma, who heads Badung regency’s Transportation Agency, told Detik.

If you have somehow avoided the traffic congestion in Bali, all the commotion might be building up even more now with New Year’s Eve coming tomorrow. We’re not exactly keen on going out and getting stuck in traffic, as these videos have more than convinced us to stay at home.

Eco Friendly prefab homes unveiled in Bali

Eco Friendly prefab homes futured by Bali-based architect Alexis Dornier has unveiled a beautiful, eco-friendly concept for a series of prefabricated homes that are elevated off the landscape by stilts. The Stilt Studios come in a variety of sizes, from one-story to multi-level, all raised above the ground to reduce the structures’ impact. Additionally, the prefab design, which can be easily disassembled and moved to new locations, includes a number of sustainable features, such as solar power and integrated rainwater collection systems.Eco Friendly prefab home According to the architect, inspiration for the Stilt Studios came from a problematic housing issue common in Bali. “The reality here is that we often find leasehold plots with a limited amount of years,” explained the German architect, who currently resides in Bali. “This situation calls for us to tread lightly through prefab ‘PropTech’ structures that could be packed up and re-erected someplace else.”

Eco Friendly prefab homesAccordingly, the concept calls for prefab building system, which would allow the units to be installed by families who are in need of extra space. The homes could also be used as rental units for extra income. The structures would come in a number of sizes as well, depending on the owners’ needs.

Sanur Clubhouse condo property

Eco Friendly prefab homes would be made out of steel frameworks initially, but Dornier hopes to build additional models out of CLT paneling. Other sustainable features to the design are plentiful, with solar arrays on the roof to generate energy, large roof overhangs to reduce solar heat gain on the interior and a built-in rainwater harvesting system to reuse water. Wide, open doorways and large windows would also promote natural air ventilation. The concept envisions families growing their own organic food underneath the buildings.

The dreamy beach house Tanjung has been marketed at clients living in Western Australia looking for a sea change, with the guide price set around $3 million.Speaking to FEMAIL, agent Jody Fewster said the property is ‘very, very special’.
