In the pristine region of Batukaru, Tabanan, where the air is clean and the water flows pure, Karusotju, Bali’s finest-craft distilled spirit brand, stands committed to preserving the natural beauty of its surroundings.

With a deep sense of responsibility towards the environment, we embarked on a journey of zero waste production by implementing sustainable practices such as composting and collaborating with our brand partner, Bali Maggot Clean. This is our attempt as a conscious brand to create a greener, more sustainable future in the distilled spirits industry through small yet impactful steps.

Read through this article and delve into the significance of zero waste production, our eco-friendly initiatives, and the benefits our zero waste productions have to offer to our consumers and the environment.

Embracing Zero Waste: Our Sustainable Mission

From the beginning, we’ve been dedicated to address the issue of waste. Recognizing the importance of preserving the natural resources of Batukaru, we took proactive measures to minimize our ecological footprint, and believed that by adopting a zero waste production approach, we could ensure our day-to-day operations don’t harm our surrounding environment in Batukaru.

Composting: Turning Sweet Potatoes Waste into Nutrient-Rich Soil

The composting process plays a vital role in our waste management. To start, unused cassava pieces, leaves, and kitchen waste are collected and carefully processed by our staff. Here’s how: these organic materials are first shredded into smaller pieces using a chopper, after which they undergo a controlled fermentation process, transforming into nutrient-rich compost. This compost serves as an excellent natural fertilizer, benefiting the local flora and promoting sustainable agricultural practices. How interesting is that?

We utilize this compost to nourish trees and cultivate a variety of vegetables of our Batukaru area, this naturally fosters a harmonious relationship between nature and human consumption!

Our Partnership with Bali Maggot Clean: A Collaborative Effort

To enhance our waste management efforts, we’ve partnered with Bali Maggot Clean, a dedicated organization that specializes in treating organic waste in Bali, and what a wonderful partnership it was.

One particular waste product of the distillation process, sweet potato pulp, is repurposed through a cycle of nature. This pulp serves as nourishment for the larvae called Black Soldier Flies (BSF), or more commonly known as maggots. As the maggots consume the sweet potato pulp, they grow and develop until they reach maturity. The residual sweet potato pulp then gradually transforms into a solid substance called cassava. Fun fact: this cassava is rich in nutrients and proves highly beneficial for plant growth, while the matured maggots serve as a valuable source of protein-rich animal feed. Isn’t it fascinating how nature works?
