22 April 2021, Earth Day | Bali, Indonesia
We joined forces with Hôtel Magique and Batik Boy Radio to launch a limited-edition Earth Club t-shirt this Earth Day to raise donations to protect Bali’s waterways.
100% of the profit goes to Sungai Watch, a project to clean Indonesia’s rivers to prevent plastic from entering into the ocean.
For the past 8 months, Sungai Watchhas been busy cleaning rivers in Bali. It’s their mission to protect waterways, starting in Indonesia. Since august 2020 Sungai Watch collected more than 300.000 pounds of plastic from Bali’s rivers. They are catching this plastic through 52 trash barriers that they installed in Bali’s rivers, with the goal of preventing plastic pollution from entering the ocean. The goal is to have 100 barriers this year!
We have been able to personally witness the incredible work of Gary and his team at Sungai Watch. And we even proudly sponsored two of our own Trash Barriers! (If you’re a brand and also want to donate a trash barrier, read more here).
Together with Milou, good friend, designer and founder behind Hôtel Magique and Dave ‘Batik Boy Radio’ we are seeing firsthand how the plastic pollution is impacting the island they love so dearly. As Dutch creatives based in Bali, we got together on this project to raise awareness of the urgency to act now, and put a spotlight on the inspiring work of Sungai Watch. We all want Bali to remain paradise, so we need to take responsibility in playing an active part in that.
Join the Earth Club.
The design ‘Earth Club’ came from the idea to show that change is not something that is outside of us, or only something environmental activists are working on. It is something we all need to take active part in. From small steps like eliminating single use plastic to joining beach clean-ups to transition to a plant-based diet. The question is, are you in to protect our beautiful earth and oceans?
We will share more in the upcoming 2 weeks about the work of Sungai Watch. Join them on river cleanings, host a live Instagram interview with Gary and close these 2 weeks of Earth Club activities with an intimate fundraising event on May 6th with live DJ set by Batik Boy Radio at Matanari - that we'll be streaming live through Instagram and Twitch.
Spread LOVE & MAGIQUE. Not PLASTIC.
Our Earth Club t-shirt is made of non-dyed, 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. That means the t-shirt is textured with tiny specs of the original cotton plant, including seed particles. For the print there are no chemicals used and less water.
The Earth Club t-shirt will be worldwide, online available for 15 days only until Thursday the 6th of May.
