Staff of Aston Belitung Cleaned Tanjung Pendam Beach

Positive actions from across the archipelago.

Dua Tangan Cukup (Two Hands are Enough) is a movement started by Clean Up Jakarta Day, under Indonesia Expat, which encourages actions to clean up the environment, small or big, from people of all walks of life around Indonesia, which will in turn inspire change. We want to hear about what you’re doing to clean up your community and make a difference and we will publish your stories here, every issue. This could be a beach cleanup, an underwater cleanup, a recycling initiative you are putting together where you live, educating people how to separate waste or anything related to cleaning up your community. All you need are your hands and a bit of spare time to make a difference!

Staff of Aston Belitung carried out their Dua Tangan Cukup action on the island of Belitung, off the southeast coast of Sumatra. Belitung Island is known for its beautiful beaches, however rubbish washing up on the shores of these beaches is still a problem. This is why the staff of this hotel cleaned up their beach in an effort to make a difference in their community and inspire positive actions from other people. 50 staff members cleaned up Tanjung Pendam beach for two hours, collecting a total of 850 kg of rubbish. Keep up the great work, guys!
