As an Intern at Tet.Responsible Wear, I was thrilled to be a part of the organizing team for the beach cleanup that took place in Canggu, Bali on the 29th of March. Our motto for the event was “save the ocean with TET,” which represents our brand’s commitment to creating a sustainable future and protecting our oceans.
At Tet.Responsible Wear, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the environment through our production practices. We produce swimwear from recycled plastic, which helps to reduce plastic waste in the ocean and decrease our reliance on virgin materials. In addition to using recycled materials, we also prioritize ethical and sustainable manufacturing processes. We work with factories that adhere to fair labor practices, and we ensure that all of our products are produced using eco-friendly methods.
The event started at 8:30 am at the main beach in Canggu, where we welcomed participants and handed out trash bags and gloves. As one of the organizers, I was thrilled to see the enthusiasm and energy of the volunteers as we made our way to the beach to start the cleanup.
The sheer amount of plastic waste and other trash on the beach was alarming, and it highlighted the urgent need to take action against plastic pollution. It was heartening to see so many people coming together to help clean up the beach and raise awareness about the issue.
The plastic pollution crisis is a significant environmental issue that poses a severe threat to our oceans, wildlife, and overall ecosystem. Plastic pollution has devastating effects on marine life, as animals can ingest or get entangled in plastic waste, leading to severe injuries, disease, and even death. Furthermore, plastic waste in the ocean can break down into microplastics, which can enter the food chain and have harmful consequences on human health.
As we collected the trash, I could see the impact of our efforts. The beach started to look cleaner, and we could see the sand and ocean beneath the layers of waste. It was a small but meaningful step in the fight against plastic pollution and environmental degradation.
As a swimwear and lifestyle brand, Tet.Responsible Wear is committed to addressing the root causes of plastic pollution and working towards reducing our reliance on single-use plastics. We believe that events like the beach cleanup are essential in raising awareness about the issue and inspiring action.
In conclusion, I am proud to have been a part of the organizing team for the beach cleanup organized by Tet.Responsible Wear. It was an incredible experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have contributed to a meaningful cause. The event serves as a reminder that we all have a role to play in protecting the environment and creating a sustainable future.
