HOW WE DO
We highlight and promote the socially and environmentally responsible commitments taken by global brands through The Punch Community’s interactive online listing and bi-annual guide.
In a world facing serious environmental and social challenges, The Punch was born from a deep love of the island to connect tourists with the businesses who were taking action to protect the island and its native communities.
From its rich, peaceful and creative essence, Bali is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, welcoming millions of travelers every year. Unfortunately, although a welcome boost to the economy, tourism in Bali contributes to environmental and social challange by increasing waste, reducing natural resources and threatening both eco systems and communities.
These challenges were taken seriously by our Founder Audrey PETRELLUZZI, who was determined to be part of the solution. Audrey’s approach was based around the idea that “thousand of small, imperfect actions addup and have the power to inspire and create big change”.
While building The Punch Community, this philosophy successfully encouraged more than 200 hospitality destinations brands in Bali to make a positive change – inspiring them to commit to a minimum of five small, environmentally and socially responsible actions, as part of their daily operations. Members of The Punch Community were promoted through an online platform which inspired travelers to have the best time in Bali, while minimizing their impact by choosing responsible destinations and brands.
