John Hardy’s Bali Workshop Advances Tropical Restoration with Bamboo Village Trust Partnership April 16, 2024 (0 comments)


Bali, Indonesia--Established in 1975 by John Hardy, the Bali artisan workshop has prioritized environmental sustainability since its inception. It utilizes 100% reclaimed silver and gold and minimizes waste, with less than 1% of materials reaching landfills.

As noted on John Hardy's website, the workshop — constructed in 1996 from sustainable materials like bamboo — operates within a system that recycles all its wastewater for use in the surrounding organic farm.

The 2004 addition of the Kapal Bamboo Boutique, built above the sacred Subak irrigation system, demonstrates the brand's commitment to eco-friendly practices by integrating with the local environment without disruption.

The 2007 initiation of the Bamboo Agroforestry project marked a significant step in local environmental and social efforts. To date, nearly 1.5 million bamboo seedlings have been planted, supporting land restoration and providing a renewable resource for the community.

Arief Rabik's 2024 collaboration with the Bamboo Village Trust focuses on expanding these efforts globally. The project aims to rehabilitate degraded lands and create sustainable livelihoods through extensive bamboo planting, which Rabik praises for its environmental and economic benefits.

In addition to environmental projects, John Hardy has committed to operational sustainability, using 100% renewable energy since 2021.
