All Semara Group venues including Finns Beach Club are committed to our community and environment in Bali. We place high emphasis on helping those less fortunate to give something worthwhile back to the community.
On a local level our activities include support and the use of our venues complimentary to local sporting organisations, charities, schools, orphanages and disadvantaged children. We also have an ongoing education program for our staff on Clean and Green policies.
Reducing waste is a particular concern in Bali. Every little step is important, but they can all add up quickly. Semara Group has taken steps to reduce paper usage, recycle paper and plastic, use grey water for gardening, separate and recycle trash and use alternative bags rather than plastic. We encourage staff, members and guests to use their own water bottle for refilling due to environmental concerns and offer complimentary drinking water to refill.
Staff of Semara Beach House (and now Finns Beach Club) have been cleaning the beach in the front of Semara Beach House and Finns Beach Club for the past 5 years daily between 5am – 9am, resulting in many truckloads of rubbish being taken off the beach at Berawa.
The Cubby House Kids Club VIP Program supports less fortunate children of Bali. Each month a group of children are invited to Cubby House located at Canggu Club for playtime including a meal and a VIP TShirt. Return Transport to the place of residence is provided. To date we have hosted Jodie O’Shea, YKPA, Anugrah Boys & Girls Orphanges, William Booth Boys Home, Elisama Orphanage, Hope Children Home Bali, Yayasan Tawam Asi, Tunas Bangsa, Panti Asuhan Orphanages.
On the afternoon of Sunday 9th April 2017 Finns Beach Club and local surf brand, LOKO sponsored the Inaugural Keep Bali Clean Surf Challenge. This was a free community event with only a donation of RP 50,000 per person being requested. The aim was to increase awareness of the Keep Bali Clean campaign to all Bali residents and raise funds to support their 2017 projects such as presentations to educate primary school students, anti-littering advertisements on local TV station DEWATA TV at 6pm daily plus two new advertisements which are in the coming. Further a subsidized rubbish collection is in the planning, as well as the placement of compost bins in Canggu area.
A ‘Keep Bali Clean’ – star system will be introduced for hotels within Bali. With this system the hotels can receive a number of stars as reward to their recycle efforts, and for the support they give to Keep Bali Clean.
Almost RP 10,000.000 were raised from donations and the sale of Keep Bali Clean merchandise. Finns will continue to work to improve rubbish disposal in the Berawa and Canggu areas to preserve our beautiful island of Bali.
