Going Green with Alila Bali Resorts and Their “Act Local, Impact Global” Event


The world is about to get a little greener with Alila Hotels & Resorts being the host venue for the “Act Local, Impact Global” event along with One Island One Voice and Java Mountain Coffee.

On Friday, 31st August 2018, Alila Seminyak held an event, jointly supported by all four Alila resorts in Bali and collaborated with One Island One Voice, to make a KOMITMEN to build a sustainable future through a series of realistic and impactful actions as pledged by a party of conscious and responsible business leaders. This pledge is also supported by Bali Hotel Association and NOW! Bali magazine.

The KOMITMEN will hold realistic first steps for plastic elimination, reduction, separation and disposal at Alila resorts to help end the crisis of plastic pollution in our oceans, rivers, fields and landfills.

Alila Ubud’s smart take to better the environment is to start using glass water bottles to eliminate single use plastic bottles.

Through this powerful initiative, One Island One Voice with Alila Bali are encouraging other green-focused hotels in Bali to sign up for the KOMITMEN to eliminate plastic pollution together. These actions include the ban of single use plastic straws, single use water bottles, and the separation of organic and inorganic waste on property.

Alila Bali has also undertaken to replace in-room coffee machines with Java Mountain Coffee that uses certified biodegradable capsules which will take three months to breakdown into composite after usage. The coffee comes from farm fresh sustainable coffee that empowers female farmers and seasonal workers from Bali Mountain Women’s Coffee Cooperative and Java Mountain Women’s Coffee Cooperative. Part of the revenue from this project is invested directly to the Women’s Empowerment Innovation Fund.

Alila Bali Resorts will start to ban single use plastic straws in their resorts to help eliminate waste and fight for a better future.

Environmental sustainability and community welfare are well ingrained in the Alila operating values since the brand’s inception 15 years ago. Some of Alila’s green initiatives happening across all four Alila resorts include Alila Manggis’ ‘Dive Against Debris’ where every month, Alila Ubud and their use of Bamboo Straws, and Alila Villas Uluwatu produces its own glass-bottled water. Alila Seminyak implemented a ‘Straw on Request Only’ at Seasalt and Beach Bar where only paper and cornstarch straws are used.
