Stop Trashing Thailand! Tourists show the Thais how to pick up litter!

Following reports that Thailand is being named as a major dumping ground for the world's trash came two tourists who decided to take matters into their own hands.

 

And show the Thais what a bit of elbow grease can achieve in helping to make the country a bit cleaner.

 

The foreigners were filmed by a passerby collecting bags of trash blown in off the sea at Ao Ton Sai Beach on Phi Phi Island, Krabi.

 

They waded into the sea and filled several bags and put them by the roadside for proper collection

 

Spring News praised the tourists saying they didn't make a song and dance about doing a good deed - they just got on with it.

Hopeless.

I am looked at like an alien if I deny a plastic bag and put things in a shopping bag brought with me (tales from the village market).

I asked my wife what did they do before the age of plastic bags?

"They had a basket."

:wink:

How do I know that school is closed?

Less garbage in front of the plot.

I have noticed that some people always believe that there is someone below them to clean up after them. They think that have that they have superiority and cleaning up their own mess is beneath them. Probably more noticeable in Thailand.

Littering looks to be part of the country's DNA.  Remember riding on a klong boat admiring a beautiful woman who was eating lunch serenely.  She then so elegantly, gracefull floated the plastic bag into the klong.  It was horrifying. 

 

To be fare, saw the same things in Malaysia.

I wonder when the authorities become embarrassed enough that they start busting trash-collecting tourists for cleaning up Thailand without a work permit?

Thai Media:
"Tourist Can't Just Come To Thailand and Do What They Want - Like Picking Up Trash!!!"  <cut to horrified locals suffering from lose of face>

Thais will object tourists , have no work permits, not that having one would help as the right to work means in  Thai language......…Not working at all !! For Thais .

Farangs have been showing Thais how to pick up trash for decades to no avail.  Thais have the means and opportunity, but lack the motivation. Case dismissed

Stop to accuse only the Thais about the trash situation, many of us do always the best to increase the problem.

The tourists put the bags of rubbish by the side of the road . I am sure the Thais thought what a load of plonkers, as they took the rubbish to the recycle yatd and sold it
