The amount of single plastic waste along with other non-organic waste is always our concern for future environment. On 15th February 2020, “Bali’s Biggest Clean-up” was carried out in whole island of Bali, leading by One Island One Voice(OIOV), Bali based NGO. It was the 4th year to conduct this biggest clean up event. For more detail please visit https://www.oneislandonevoice.org/
Ametis Villa Bali had participated as a part of coordinator in Batu Bolong Beach, Canggu. Total 274 volunteers from 30 business, community and local authority were joined to clean the beach and the street on that day. 48 bags of waste was collected, which were sorted by cigarette butts 793pcs, food wrapping 210pcs, plastic bottles and cups 151pcs, then followed by other plastics such as styrofoam, glass bottles, straws, cans, and shoes, etc. Those recyclable wastes were collected by EcoBali to proceed recycling. Organic and non recyclable wastes were collected by local village waste collect.

Ametis-Villa Bali Acts Empowers
Indonesian Women in Need by Sourcing Sustainable Hand-Woven Goods
At Ametis-Villa Bali, we are delighted to
announce that we are further intensifying our Corporate Social Responsibility
efforts. With the New Year well and truly underway, we are now more committed
than ever to give back to people in need and adopt more sustainable hospitality
We feel morally obliged to make a difference
in whatever way possible, and our latest action has been toconnect like-minded
suppliers who share our vision. This led us to Du’Anyam, a
social enterprise that produces and distributes wicker craftsto empower women,
promote Indonesian culture, and improve the health conditions in rural areas.
Each unit at Ametis-Villa Bali now features eco-friendly
items such as reusable shopping bags and slippers that have been hand-woven by women
from Flores Island, East Nusa Tengara.Made from
all-natural Palmyra leaves, these convenient in-villa amenities are a direct
result of Du’Anyam’s alternative employment program that supports the practice
of traditional wicker weaving.
The sale of
these products ultimately helps provide an additional source of income for
pregnant women in remote villages who would otherwise be working as farm hands,
and thus leaving themselves open to the risk of miscarriage. Under the guidance
of Du’Anyam, they now have access to better nutrition, health services and can
support their families by using creative skills rather than hard labor.
Our Boutique Resort, Ametis Villa-Bali is the preferred accommodation option for savvy travelers seeking the serenity of Canggu as an alternative to the urban sprawl of Seminyak. The property offers a unique concept of home-style luxury that goes above and beyond all expectation. Apart from providing guests with an enriching holiday experience, one thing that also matters to us is contributing to a worthy cause. Our collaboration with a hope-driven venture such as Du’Anyam is all about lifting people up from the cycle of poverty and giving them the dignitary, which is indeed a precious gift.
