Taksu Green Warriors
Upon commencing operations, representatives from all departments formed the Green Warriors to minimize environmental impacts through controlled monitoring and goal setting to reduce the consumption

of electricity and water. In cooperation with a professional waste management firm, the volume is continuously being reduced. They work closely with NGOs, particularly Plastic Free Bali and Bali Recycling, as well as Putra Bangsa School of Tourism to keep rivers healthy.

Green Warrior Excursion to Bali Recycling
Taksu’s eco-focused team of dedicated warriors visited the Bali Recycling waste management site on Wednesday, July 25 to better understand how the waste collected from Taksu is measured, stored and safely handled. Bali Recycling provides a monthly report detailing the amount of rubbish by category collected, so that all depart

ments can identify ways to reduce the amount of garbage created. They also learned more about hazardous wastes such as light bulbs, paints and

solvents, plus electronic waste like hand phones, computers, printers, TVs, etc which contain dangerous metals and materials. These have to be dismantled and divided into categories for safe recycling and processing.

Solemen Solecentre

The NEW SOLEMEN SOLECENTRE – Life support for the Psychically & Mentally disabled!

Welcome to the new SOLECENTRE a 10 bedroom Care & Recovery Centre. Incorporating Bali Dynasty Care and Recovery Centre where Solebuddies can stay during hospital assessment or check ups, pre or post operation and recovery. As Sarah Chapman says, “our ‘Solebuddies’ deserve the best we can give them”. The new 10 bedroom facility is a lovely clean, comfortable, well equipped ‘home’, with staff living onsite.

Saturday 24th August was a highly emotive and memorable day for Robert and Sarah the creators of the SOLEMEN Charity which gives life and support to the physically and mentally disabled in Bali. Sometimes these people are found in a living hell of a chains, misunderstanding and shame.

This all began 7 years ago when they rescued little Ani who was 8yrs old and weighed only 6 kilos. (check out her story here https://www.solemen.org/) And you can see her picture proudly displayed in the Centre entrance. Now SOLEMEN are currently caring for over 2,000 people Bali wide.

With much gratitude to the Bali Dynasty Resort the SOLEMEN Major Sponsor and to additional important sponsors and contributors such as Finns Beach Club, the Hard Rock Hotel Bali and Sunset Vet Bali and many others. Thanks too to all their very generous supporters who have made this SOLECENTRE possible like Janet Molloy, families and staff of Jani Silver & Goddess on the Go, Hetty Bradley’s Kayonan Learning Community and all their awesome volunteers.
Most especially the SOLEMEN’s outstanding, dedicated, loyal and passionate Outreach team who ALL work tirelessly day and night to make this happen.

“We are so very grateful to all our kind supporters who made our dream become a reality.” Robert Epstone
