146 / SDN 4 Ubung, Denpasar, Bali (grades 6B and 6C)
Mr. Pande Ketut Suardana and Mrs. Ni Wayan Anik Garbayanti are teachers in class VI B and VI C respectively, at the elementary school SDN 4 Ubung located in the city of Denpasar, next to a traditional market.
We approached this elementary school because it was recommended by the Educational Department of Denpasar, for the lack of waste management awareness in that school.
After completing all stages of the Zero Waste School Program (Sekolah Nol Sampah), Mr. Pande stated: “Students continue using the water filter and bring reusable bottles from home. Also, students separate the waste into designed bins.” Mrs. Ni Wayan adds: “As students learn to manage their waste and reduce the use of single-use plastic they can learn to use our Tasini rewards when they shop at the nearby market.”
This project has been possible thanks to the kind support of Love Bali Tees within the Green Community Partnership.
