The subak system as a manifestation of the Tri Hita Karana Philosophy and one of the UNESCO World Heritage.

One of the Big problems for Bali Tourism as we know is the problem of Rubbish / Garbage / Waste (sampah). The problem could be found in everywhere, dirty environment, plastic waste that cannot be weathered for years, flood in the rainy season and we have to do something about this before it’s getting worse and to keep Ubud Clean & Green as one of the famous Tourist Destination in Bali.
The garbage/ waste in Bali consist of two types, those are:
1) Organic Garbage is: waste that can be weathered (decomposition) and the material breaks down into smaller and does not smell (often referred to as compost). Compost is the result of weathering of organic materials such as leaves, straw, weeds, litter, grass, and other similar materials which’s the weathering process accelerated by human intervention. Compost has benefits for environment and it helps plants to growth and green the world.
2) Un-Organic Garbage is: waste materials, generated from non-living, either the sinterik product or the results of the mineral technology process. Inorganic waste is waste generated from non-biological materials and cannot be broken down by nature, for example: plastic bottles, plastic bags, cans. Un-Organic Garbage can be managed and reused as recycle product that has benefits in human being life.
Good management in managing garbage/ rubbish/ waste is needed to keep Ubud green and clean from rubbish. As one of the well known tourist destination in Bali. Let us protect ubud from rubbish by supporting Government’s Program in creating “Bali Clean & Green”. Simple things to do like, threw the rubbish in the waste bin, remember between the organic & unorganic waste so throw in the right waste bin. Reduce in using plastic bag at least it could help to clean our earth. By maintaining the cleanliness and green of our environment so the Bali Philosopy “Tri Hita Karana” the good relation between human and their environment could be achieved.
