Farming is first on our list. A green activity, you will gain hands-on experience in plowing, planting, and harvesting crops. It’s also a humbling experience as you will get to experience what it’s like to sow seeds that will eventually end up on your plate. It educates you about agriculture and farming, and is also a good alternative to physical exercise. You will develop an appreciation for nature and for the farmers who go through every day what you’re experiencing for one occasion.
A beach littered with rubbish not only spoils the view, but also harms the environment and the beach ecosystem. With thousands of tourists flocking to Bali’s idyllic beaches daily, it’s hard to keep our eyes on the leftovers that stay behind as the tourists leave. Participating in a beach cleanup is one way for you to help clean Bali’s beautiful beaches. It’s a rewarding and fulfilling activity as you can directly see the results of your efforts in the clean, spotless beach.
Interested? you can participate in beach cleanup activities together with fellow responsible people. Make sure to be on the lookout for community-led beach cleanup events when you’re in Bali!
If you want to experience more than just eco-friendly activities on land, don’t worry! Channel your admiration and love for the ocean by restoring corals to their former glory. Coral reefs provide important coastal protection for communities and are also a vital habitat for marine life. Yet, they are rapidly threatened by climate change, and their numbers are dwindling. Taking part in coral reef rehabilitation means taking impactful action for the environment.
