We want Zen Paradise want to be a part of the solution to making the beautiful beaches and oceans of Indonesia trash-free. As we say in our mission statement, Zen Paradise is committed to minimizing our impact on the environment and increasing long-term sustainability. One way we’ve chosen to do live out our values is to become a proud supporter of Bye Bye Plastic Bags.
And we want to highlight the youth of Bali doing incredible work for the environment and for the world and share their efforts with our Zen community.
