THE PUNCH COMMUNITY
A growing responsible community
The Punch is a creative, minimalist and responsible platform celebrating a community of worldwide businesses that are #movingfortomorrow; A movement to raise global awareness about how an elegant and responsible lifestyle can act as a vehicle for positive lasting change.
As a philosophy on conservation and consciousness, The Punch’s concept is about adding value and not just minimizing the damage being done. A concept that not only have a reduced footprint but that enables businesses and customers to reduce theirs.
From an educational opportunity to the desire of anticipating a new, innovative and impactful responsible lifestyle documentary, we want people to rethink everything they know about sustainability.
THE PUNCH METHOD
A unique method based on the power of small responsible actions
In a world facing serious environmental challenges, The Punch is the first online platform recognizing small efforts from worldwide businesses aiming to become more responsible for their actions. The Punch Community members are committed to a minimum of five responsible actions as part of their operations
At the Punch, we believe more than ever that each small action matters and that’s where we aim to focus.
The Punch For Bali
From its rich, peaceful and creative essence; endless beaches, magnificent nature, unforgettable sunsets, beautiful people and unique energy, Bali is one of the top tourist destinations in the world – welcoming millions of travellers every year. Unfortunately, although a welcome boost to the economy, tourism in Bali contributes to environmental challenges by increasing waste, reducing natural resources and threatening both ecosystems and communities.
The Punch Community was born in Bali in August 2019 to celebrate businesses’ sustainable efforts and proudly provides unique and inspirational stories from more than 200 Balinese responsible businesses.
SUPPORT BALI DURING COVID
With the current pandemic of Covid-19, tourists have left the island Of Bali and most of the businesses have closed down. As 80% of the island economy depends on tourism, the local community of Bali is struggling.
There is no better time to discover the power of a responsible community.
“We strive to minimize our impact on the environment. Our Bali resorts are guided by the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana. Meaning ‘the three causes of happiness’, it reflects the belief that humanity, God and the environment must all be in balance to achieve harmony. From a full sustainability management to banning plastic straws in all dining outlets at both resorts, recycling paper to make notebooks, participating to annual clean-up events and regularly donating equipment to needy communities, we are proud to be recognised as a responsible tourism operator.”
Faithfull The Brand
“Each Faithfull garment is carefully designed, sourced and produced in Bali, Indonesia, by using handmade techniques such as hand-dying and hand-printing. Our prints are inspired by findings in vintage markets and along our travels. In this way, travel plays a very special role in our design process – we love when we discover a rare and beautiful print oversees or in an exotic, unexpected location. Produced entirely in Bali, we maintain close relationships with all our local factories and employees after having worked directly with them for almost a decade.”
“At Potato Head, we believe that our approach to sustainability has led us to a far better experience for the consumer. We do not want to be the people that deliver a sub-standard sustainable answer. We know we can make the best products for our customers and not sacrifice the guest experience. Sustainable can be beautiful, sustainable can be exceptional. We focus our efforts in 3 areas to follow a zero waste philosophy: Product – Beautiful x Sustainable, Education – Local x Global Changemakers & Action – First Mover x Commitment.”
“Through our minimalist, comfy and timeless brand, we wanted to make a difference in the fashion industry that is changing constantly. We want to take the time to create pieces that reflect our values, beliefs and what’s best for the environment. Basics are meant to last and be the masterpiece of your everyday wardrobe. We prioritize quality over quantity. We do believe that happy employees and tailors can be felt in our pieces. Which is why we do have limited quantity and every piece are unique. We believe that supporting brands that share the same value as you is fundamental.”
