Community

Here at Bio Bus, we do a lot to incorporate our community into everything we do. Whether that’s sending our team to COP21, COP22, COY22, COP23 or working with the wonderful students at Kul Kul Connection. We know that maintaining strong relationships with our community is what keeps us running. We like to involve our community as much as we can because a sustainable future requires everyone to take action and work together.

Our Partner Lengis Hijau – Biodiesel Factory

Without Yayasan Lengis Hijau, Bio Bus would not exist.  We work closely with Lengis Hijau. and we often make trips to them. We deliver used cooking oil to them every month and visit them to fill up our buses. Furthermore, at Lengis Hijau, the students learn how to make biodiesel and the chemistry behind it.  You can often see us together at sustainability events in Indonesia.  We have formed a great bond!

Bio Bus Grease Police 

The “Grease Police” is another branch of the Bio Bus found by students. On Wednesdays, the Grease Police patrols the streets of Sibang, Ubud, Canggu, and beyond, collecting used cooking oil from local warungs and restaurants in exchange for our homemade Bio Soap. This program helps preserve the environment and the health of Bali and provides our partner, Lengis Hijau, with a supply of used cooking oil to be converted into biodiesel.  You can donate your used cooking oil to Bio Bus by bringing it to the Bio Bus office across the Green School Farm Stand at Green School or by emailing us for a pick up.

Participants

Want to get involved and earn your badge? You can join the “Grease Police” by stopping by the Bio Bus office to pick up your own jerry can. The next time you go out to eat, bring your jerry can and ask for “Minyak Jelantah”.  In many cases, restaurants are happy to give it up and free their conscience of what might otherwise be happening to their Used Cooking Oil.
