Fusion Freediving and Yoga held a beach clean-up and static apnea competition from November 10th to 11th at The Griya Villas and SPA in Amed, Bali.

Local Indonesian staff and interns from Fusion visited a local school last Thursday to teach kids about the dangers of single-use plastic to the marine environment. More than 40 students participated in cleaning up the beach and waters of Jemeluk Bay. In total, 51 volunteers help to collect 158 kg of trash which would otherwise have ended up in the ocean .
