I see the foreigners rightfully blame Thai population of using tons of plastic.

99% of the foreigners I see at the cashier, be it at 7, tops or any other supermarket let their goods put into countless plastic bags as well. I am always the only one with a rucksack or boxes to put in bakery or other solutions in order to leave without a single plastic bag...

Making a series of non-reusable plastic banners, most likely figure is in thousands, is a very good start. People up there are just not serious. What a pity for the country and its people, expats included. Taxing plastic and banning it would do miracles along with a proper education. What am I talking about. To early for a century. ;(  at list.

What about recycling?  No mention?  Don’t sell tourists plastic.  Deposits on plastic bottles.  Penalties for not recycling.  Thai people tell me that only foreigners refuse plastic bags

Take a leaf from tried and tested results in most civilised countries. Start with education, education and more education, at school, media, adverts, then at least somewhere to dispose of rubbish. It works, dont pass the buck on the tourists, it happens in nakon nowhere as well.

Perhaps the good leader should just go all-out and ban: plastic bottles, polystyrene foam food/drink containers, all other plastic food type packaging along with the never ending Thai love affair with the plastic bag!!!!

Force manufacturers to come up with and supply bio-degradable alternatives or go out of business !!

Give the Thai consumers not an alternative but another packaging solution !!

1-5 baht refund per bottle, added to the sale will clean up the problem in 5 minutes

But that would help the poor... and lazy hiso and hilo would pay for it

Gen Prayut said this week that a campaign has been launched to create environmental awareness and encourage tourists to share responsibility for natural resources and the environment. 

 

Never mind the tourists,  they're not the problem as most people know.  As usual trying to dilute responsibility.

The easy way and style: blame the foreigners (tourists) and the awarness of them for the garbage problem.

It would be better Mr Prayut to AWARE THAIS AND CHANCE THE WAY TO USE PLASTIC IN THAILAND very quick as some things can be easy done!

TEACH AND TRAIN THAIS; THEY ARE WASTING AND DESTROING THIS COUNTRY!!!!!

especially plastic pollution, at various tourist sites across the country. 

 

why not everywhere??? This shows just how concerned he really is about the problem. NOT VERY. It’s all about false images and false perceptions.

Let’s do the maths

65 million Thais x 365 days per year

35 million tourists x 20 days per year

 

That’s 

 

23,725,000,000 plastic days versus 

700,000,000 plastic days. 

 

Thais 97% contribution 

Tourists 3% contribution
