MojoSurf and Orca365 help in Bali

Nathan “Nat” Folkes , who brought MojoSurf surf schools to five countries has teamed up with the female Indiana Jones, adventure film maker and reality TV star Alison Teal, harnessing the power of the sea’s attraction to bring surfers into a massive, global clean-up the seas they ride.

The MojoSurf school and their sister organization Orca365 headed to Bali for a sustainable travel mission to help remove plastics from the once pristine waters.

It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic then fish in the ocean. Research shows that over 60% of our oxygen comes from the ocean. This pollution is also affecting fresh water sources – of the water on earth is only 2.5% is fresh and of that only 0.065% is available for human consumption and that includes all the fluids in our bodies.

In Bali at Padang Sumatra they traveled via a fast boat to Siberut and small boat transfer to the island camp. After days of surfing, cleanup and documentation of the water pollution conditions there the group moved on to Bali Canggu to repeat the cycle. Surfing in Nusa Lembongan then an exploration and documentation of the rubbish dumps in the region. While there Nat Folkes the founder of the Mojo Surf adventures discussed the project and plan for recycling plant, hopefully, get government engagement for commitment for the plant.

Folkes who founded Mojo Surf 20 years ago and is currently the Managing Director Dude of 150 staff in over 5 countries. Mojosurf is the world’s leading, largest, surf travel company and ‘learn to surf’ specialist, operating surf schools, guided surf adventures and surf camps throughout Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.

Alison, who spent much of her childhood in Bali was devastated by the condition of the waters there. Being a surfer and being an environmentalist go foot-in-leash, so Nat and Alison decided it’s time to dive in and do some good via Orca365.

Orca365 trips offer a unique mix of full-on action-packed itineraries with the ability to give back and be involved in the communities we visit. From helping to rebuild the Sunya Giri Orphanage to joining the effort to get plastic waste out of the ocean Orca365 is the next wave in responsible eco-tourism.

Orca365 and I want to inspire travelers to experience the beauty of all countries and participate in cleaning the beaches and reducing our need of single use plastics,” declared Teal.

We can all help by refusing to use single use plastics and using sustainable products like Zoetica ,  a zero-waste system providing reusable, portable, durable, indoor/outdoor dining supply kits that empower people to reuse single use convenience trash all day long.

Another solution partner is MOBOT is the world’s first IP protected, high performance travel foam exercise roller water bottle, delivering hydration and massage in one portable, eco-friendly package. The bottle’s contoured external foam roller provides trigger point release therapy.
