THE PUNCH FOR BALI
The Punch Was Born From A Deep Love For Bali
The Punch proudly provides unique and inspirational stories from more than 200 responsible destinations of Bali.
From its rich, peaceful and creative essence, 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 destinations and brands featured in this guide have committed to a minimum of five responsible actions as part of their daily operations. You will be able to identify their actions through indicative icons.
SUPPORT BALI DURING COVID
There is no better time to discover the power of a community.
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.

RESPONSIBLE SPAS AND ACTIVITIES
“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.”
“Our commitment to environmental sustainability and supporting our local community is deep-rooted. We take pride in minimising our impact on the pristine natural setting by choosing the most sustainable options available, as well as educating the staff and local partners. We are deeply involved in educating and working with the local community, from training staff on environmental best practices to helping our local partners make the most sustainable choices, like switching to reusable bags for linen deliveries.”
“We believe that health and sustainability could go hand in hand, therefore, as a restaurant we have a great responsibility not only to be sustainable by using the correct takeaway packaging, recycling and composting but to provide only the highest-quality nutritious food on the island, supporting local traditions and using only natural ingredients. From recycling programs, organic and local purchasing, equal employment opportunity and a 100% plant based menu, we believe that healthy people may achieve a healthy planet.”
“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.”
