The beautiful "Island of the Gods" is a favoured holiday destination for its idyllic beaches, surf, yoga, spiritual retreats, and UNESCO-listed rice fields. But, did you know Bali is facing a water crisis?
- 60% of Bali's water table declared dry (Cole, 2012)
- 75% of Bali's available water supply used by the tourism industry
- Overtourism one of the main causes of depleting water supplies
- The average tourist uses up to 3 times the amount of water compared to local
- Water scarcity at the core of plastic pollution issue
Gratitude to Give
The team at Corethics feels a deep sense of gratitude that we are fortunate enough to have clean running water available to us every day. That is why we believe clean water should be available for our neighbours in Bali too.
Corethics has partnered with local NGO IDEP Foundation to support their Bali Water Protection program which offers an effective and long-term solution to water depletion. This includes three sub-programs:
Adopt a Well
Implementation of recharge wells across the island (Goal: 132)
Adopt a River
Roll out of water stewardship education to elementary school children (Goal:133)
Aims to reach everyone that resides in Bali, from locals, tourists, and ex-pats. This campaign calls on Bali’s spiritual, locals, political, civil leadership, and everyone that resides in Bali to give attention and responsibility to address the island’s diminishing water table and rapidly dropping levels of freshwater availability to ensure Bali’s present and future water sovereignty and supply resilience (Goal: 10 campaigns per year ongoing)
