Hello Bali Lovers
I have a request of you all, as you are Bali visitors, can you please do Bali a big favour.
I live in Bali and constantly see tourist vehicles on the road that are blowing out black smoke.
The other day I followed one that was advertising on the back an Eco Tour, I had to laugh, or I would have actually got mad.
What I am asking, is your help. If you do a tour or use a driver in Bali can you have a look out the back window to see if your vehicle is blowing out black smoke and then tell your driver you are not happy about it. If the vehicle does not belong to him then tell the owner (or even email the company).
Some of the tour companies that are recommended in the Things to Do List that Battling put together are some of the worst for this (I drive every day in Bali and see them every morning on my way to work).
All you need to do is let them know you are not happy with it and I am sure they will do something about it. Don't be harsh but be firm and tell them it is not good for the environment. If enough people do this then hopefully they will get their vehicles fixed.
Thanks for helping to clean up Bali!
