Hindustan Times Article: 8th August 2010

A short note to link you up to my column in Hindustan Times today. In Indonesia, Yuyun Ismawati co-founded BaliFokus to deal with Bali’s growing waste management and turn it into an environmentally sound, community-based solid waste management programme.

    tourism is globally the fastest growing industry and it is surely causing issues to environment. initiatives like this are much needed! tourists should be encouraged to conserve resources by seeking out businesses that are environmentally conscious, and by using the least possible amount of non-renewable resources whenever they travel.

    not only do you need process and checks, you also need to educate the traveller; provide funds etc. hats off to balifokus!
