Shanti Travel supports the fight against plastic in Bali!


In 2013, two teenagers, Melati and Isabel, seeing their island increasingly polluted by plastic, decided to launch a movement to say NO to plastic bags. Thanks to teamwork and an unwavering desire to change mindsets, the two girls succeeded in having a definitive ban on single-use plastic bags in 2019!

Shanti travel is committed to their NGO: Bye Bye Plastic Bag in the fight against single-use plastic.
