ALILA, Bali, Indonesia | Alila Hotels & Resorts will be Zero Waste in Bali from August. The Alila Zero Waste to Landfill Project launches at all Alila’s flagship properties in Bali – Alila Villas Uluwatu, Alila Ubud, Alila Manggis (pictured) and Alila Seminyak.
Bali is renowned for its stunning landscapes; rice fields, forests, rivers, beautiful mountains and beaches, but in recent years Bali’s landfill sites have become a threat to the environment. Their explosive greenhouse gasses are 20 times more potent than CO² are encroaching upon farmland and watercourses used by the local communities.
Alila’s response is to take a zero tolerance approach to waste. Each hotel’s PIONEER team (Positive Impact on Nature, Environment and Earth’s Resources) is responsible for upholding the zero-to-landfill status and to ensuring Alila in no way contributes to the problem. Initiatives include incentivising waste collection for local village residents, and primary school kids are encouraged to bring waste to school, and in return Alila will contribute to their school fund.
