ABOUT

Made for the ocean lovers and dreamers. Made for sun-kissed skin, salty days and long nights. Semi-precious stones that sparkle in the light. An array of hand chosen colours to suit every mood and every wrist. Much more than a beautiful keepsake, there is more to every Batu Bali piece than meets the eye.

    With a strong focus on ethical production and sustainability, Batu Bali has an important message and the voice to share it. Designed by local artisans and lovingly hand-made in the tropical paradise of Bali, our bespoke jewellery label recognises the importance of giving back to the island that has given us and many others, so much.

Unfortunately, Bali’s beaches are not always palm trees, white sand and crystal clear water. Did you know that 8 million tons of harmful plastic end up in the ocean yearly, and sadly we are all responsible for this. Batu Bali has teamed up with Bye Bye Plastic Bags in a bid to help save the planet. We donate 50% of all profits to the foundation, in an effort to do what we can for the planet.  

Every time you purchase a Batu Bali bracelet you are helping support the amazing work of the Bye Bye Plastic Bags foundation. Now is the time to act!

Bye Bye Plastic Bags (BBPB) is an NGO driven by youth to get the people of Bali to say no to plastic bags. The campaign was launched in 2013 by founders and sisters, Melati (16) and Isabel (14) Wijsen. Since then, BBPB in Bali, has grown to include a volunteer team of 25 students from local and international schools around the island.

 

The team has spent the last 4 years raising awareness about the waste problem in Bali through delivering school presentations and workshops, organizing beach clean-ups, providing 16,000+ alternative bags, working on creating a plastic bag free pilot village, lobbying with local and national governments, and speaking at a variety of local and global events.

 

These two young women have become a well-known international movement of inspiration and youth empowerment, confirmed by the fact that FORBES has listed them as part of the top 10 most inspiring women in Indonesia. In 2016, BBPB went global and has now established 15+ new BBPB groups in international cities with more inquires each week.
