THE STORY OF LAUT BARU_
Laut Baru (meaning “Clean Sea”) is an initiative taken to keep the island of Bali clean and free of plastics. It was never easy to do so on our own, which is why we’re seeking your help to achieve this. We have decided to launch our very own lineup of bracelets made by the local people of this region to get you directly involved in our cleaning drive. Each bracelet tells a story. When you buy from us, you donate a portion of it to keep the marvelous beaches and ocean of Bali clean and plastic-free.
A PLASTIC FREE CLEAN SEA There is a major problem: the plastic soup... everywhere you look there is plastic waste. It's harmful to nature and everything that lives in it, fishermen also depend on a clean sea. It is our mission to tackle the core of the problem and to involve the rest of the world to create awareness to minimize (plastic) waste. The world is big and deserves love. Together we can make the world a little cleaner..
EVERY BRACELET HAS A UNIQUE CODE
The sterling silver used for the bracelets comes from Bali, where the jewellery is hand-crafted. The striking woven patterns are pulled off by the local craftsmen excelling at their art.
It’s sustainably made and our local silversmiths get a fair price. They are together with the local population the core of our business.
WANT TO KNOW WHAT WE DO WITH THE PROCEEDS?
You will be happy to know, we donate €20 from every sale to an independent organisation responsible for picking up plastic waste from the majestic ocean of Bali. This helps restore the natural beauty of the ocean
and keep the environment clean and eco-friendly. The process is very transparent and you can use the QR code on the bracelet to log onto our website and see for yourself how your donation is being used.
