BALI, Indonesia -- Eco Mantra, an environmental consultancy in Bali, is on a mission to show its clients how to help the planet and save big money, tapping in to a local push to spark an eventual boom in green tourism.

It helped a luxury resort on the Indonesian island shave $100,000 off its annual electricity bill, a beach club use 23 million liters less water a year and a water park eliminate the annual cost of trucking 250,000 kg of trash to landfills by investing in a single compost heap that has produced tons of free organic fertilizer.
