From adopting animals to sprucing up your home with natural elements, these are some things you can do in Jakarta for Green Week that will make Captain Planet proud.
Notice something different about our site? This week, Honeycombers is focusing on all things green! Our aim is to raise awareness of the impact of environmental issues and how consumers can make conscious choices, that in turn makes a significant impact on the world we live in. We want to champion brands and people working to help us all live in a more conscious way, and working towards a more sustainable and thoughtful future. After all, helping the environment doesn’t have to be a chore, and come on, you don’t have to wait for that one special day to show the Earth some love! To kick things off, here are some fun ways to go green in Jakarta.
Reduce your carbon footprint
What would the Big Durian be without our infamous road congestion? Truthfully, we may never know. But do we really need more cars choking the Earth with exhaust fumes? Why get stuck behind a wheel and aggravate yourself, when there are loads of easy ride-share and public transportation options so you can relax (and maybe even sneak in a nap) while Zen-ed out drivers do the stressful driving for you (does road rage event exist for them?) If you’re brave enough to face the traffic with a beaut from one of these bicycle shops in Jakarta, hey, we salute you!
Show your love for flora and fauna
Remember, Earth doesn’t only belong to you! Show your kindness to animals by adopting needy pets from great animal shelters like Garda Satwa Indonesia. If you have fur-friends of your own already, spend time with them at these dog cafes and cat cafes in Jakarta. At home, spruce up your interiors with a bunch of potted plants, terrariums and fresh flowers. Not only do they look pretty indoors, they naturally purify the air around you so your house will stay smelling fresh!
Be one with nature
It may seem hard to believe most days, but Jakarta isn’t just a concrete jungle. Give the great outdoors a chance, we promise it’ll be worth it. Feeling adventurous? Grab your most dare-devil friends and check out these adrenaline rush inducing outdoor activities too.
Dine with the elements
Swanky, air-conditioned restaurants are right up our alley and all, but we do enjoy dining with some alfresco ambience as well. These rooftop bars will never judge us for being too loud in the open.
Turn off the lights
Pretty much a no-brainer that you’ve heard time and time again, we know. But then you’re probably thinking, “How am I possibly going to get things done at night, right?”. Save electricity and use less energy by acquiring some candles instead! You’ll not only have classy ornaments flickering across your house, but your pad will smell pleasant too.
