FRIENDS OF LEMBONGAN
Established in 2012 by owners of the Sandy Bay Beach Club, Friends of Lembongan, led by Shush Ingram, is a community based organisation promoting the clean up of rubbish & education of sustainable, safe waste management practices for Nusa Lembongan& Nusa Ceningan. Pristine Islands off the coast of Bali that have been heavily impacted by fast growing tourism and poor waste management. The local inhabitants are poorly prepared for the environmental challenges they are facing and the high number of visitors and their accompanying trash is creating a potential environmental disaster for both islands.
In 2016 FOL teamed up with Bali Children Foundation to empower the youth of both islands through education and provide them with the skills they need to manage and contribute to this rapid growth. Together they are committed to making change through a sustainable recycling facility and education of the local community. BCF together with FOL in partnership with Parley for the Oceans engage in regular island clean ups which actively ensure prevention of trash entering the ocean.
