PURE CLEAN EARTH
Pure Clean Earth is a non-profit movement that aims to raise awareness of current world waste issues by demonstrating how much a single person can positively impact the environment by simply building small habits that aid the planet.
Our lives are surrounded by plastic, even unconsciously we consume it everyday. Itʼs in our food, in the clothes we wear and even in the air we breath. This plastic causes pollution, diseases, harms animals and destroys the natural environment.
Every plastic ever made is still roaming our beautiful earth, and only 5% is recycled, the rest ends up in landfills, rivers and oceans.
Pure Clean Earth is raising awareness through beach clean ups, campaigns, workshops, events, coaching and social media. Expanding the knowledge.
Their goal is to inspire the world to live a greater life without plastic.
Educate as many people and businesses as possible so they become aware of the impact of plastic in the environment and start making positive actions.

North Bali Reef Conservation
North Bali Reef Conservation is a Non-Governmental Organisation and volunteering program based in the small fishing village of Tianyar on the North East coast of Bali. Tianyar’s reef has potential to be a healthy and highly diverse coral reef but is currently in poor condition due to abusive and unsustainable actions in the past. More recently, the marine ecosystem is under pressure from plastic pollution choking marine life as well as pressure from local fishermen.
Alongside their aim to restore and conserve Tianyar’s coral reef, they also aim to provide an alternative, sustainable livelihood to the local people. North Bali Reef Conservation has since started several environmental and sustainability projects focusing on education, mentality change, no take Marine Protection Area (MPA), pollution reduction, and the construction of artificial reef structures.
Tianyar’s coral reef needs your help! After years of unsustainable fishing practices large parts of the reef are now bare with little chance of coral to recover naturally. For these bare, sandy areas of Tianyar reef to be filled, thousands of artificial reef structures are needed.

HAkA is an Aceh based NGO. Their name stands for Hutan, Alam dan Lingkungan Aceh (Forest, Nature and Environment of Aceh).
HAkA strives for a stronger and healthier Aceh. They believe this is created through an empowered civil society whose members contribute to the wellbeing of the province by participating in activities that enhance environmental function to provide clean air, water and earth and to sustain forest, river and ocean. Protecting and restoring all of these elements is vital for community development and will result in a safer, more stable and peaceful Aceh that will benefit generations to come.
Their vision is the long-term health of Aceh Province – socially, financially and environmentally. The vision is based on scientific evidence of environmental functions and identification of what nature needs to survive and prosper. Scientific assessment of the environment underpins our social and political analyses of how to bring people together to act to enhance as opposed to destroy environmental function. This integrated approach drives our campaigns and is evident in our landscape protection and restoration projects.
HAkA recognises that the unique natural processes that drive our landscapes operate over great distances and long periods. This means we need to think big when we are planning for future nature conservation in Aceh, and appreciate interconnections with neighbouring ecosystems.
Support HAkA through our coachings.
