Five foreigners spend their holidays cleaning up rubbish along Krabi Beach

The waters around Thailand are nothing but a huge garbage dump.

Not only the waters.

If it weren't for the restrictions we have as foreigners, I'd be happy to donate a few hours of my time each day/week to cleaning up.  It could be a social community without going into a bar and getting pished, and a little gentle exercise also.  

Remember that not all this waste is from Thailand, and will constantly be coming in from the sea.  If only people could see the value in it rather than seeing waste.  I'd love to have an operation recycling all this free 'solidified oil' (plastics)  Authorities are getting in the way rather than assisting though.

"Hey Gov't! I'll invest in factories and hiring the 'know how' and clean your beaches, and in return you leave me and mine alone.  Deal?"
"How much you pay me?" 😣

Kudos to them. If everyone here who bitches about the garbage spent 3 hours a week in a group cleaning a couple of blocks it would be more worthwhile than complaining. Id do it. 

Bring in the Adopt a roadside like Rotary clubs do overseas. 

 

I'm sure the locals will be happy to have farang volunteers pick up the crap they think is below them to clean up.

Seems to me if you live here you would want to help clean it up.

But then again, no expat or tourist here ever contributes to any environmental degradation, my bad,sorry for the suggestion, complaining about it is easier.

Locals are hard to train , I live in Greece same situation ! 20 foreigners beach cleaning piles of rubbish , a Greek family on the beach about 6 got up and left did they bring their crap over to us for dumping , no I went over and got it ! Its peasant mentality even though they have a big SUV and the best smart phone they shit in their own nest !

Thais were just about to do it, but the farang was quicker. Very bad farang. Go back home.

Is this infrequent behavior different than picking up 20 dogs from one area or spraying the CM air pollution with water?

 

these are desperation acts b/c there is no effective and manageable system in place for each of these serious problems....

 

great examples of a completely ineffective and unaccountable gov in full display and for a country so sensitive to their image they project to the outside....

 

in two years, only Chinese tourists remaining....

A little dramatic with the tourist prediction.

I - given the fact that one of the women is topless - suspend any criticism.

I need to mention the wonderful job that a group of people are doing on Koh Lanta.

Needless to say that many beaches that used to be so pretty on that island are now covered with

trash or worst plastic. I did participate in a Sunday clean up last year and it was a nice experience

you feel very good after the hard work of collecting bags and bags of trash, mostly plastic.

Most of the plastic I believe is brought by the ocean and it has really ruined that once pristine sands

of the beaches.

There has to be thousands of westerners staying in Thailand, just imagine for a minute that they all inundated the beaches in swarms of thousands to clean it up, it would be worldwide news, and perhaps incite the locals to follow suit.

You seem to forget that Thais are over 60 million to throw garbage in the wild every day.

In Pattaya beach the locals put their garbage in bins which are emptied several times a day...

I don't lift a finger in Thailand, always somebody waiting to report you.

 

Waste of time unless the locals do it instead.

so your just a taker?....are you fat and sweaty?.....no one is going to report you for picking up rubbish...I do it in my street.....its not a waste of time, its a good thing to do....mr GUEST what do you do all day apart from not lifting a finger?You are a negative unhappy person who only see faults.....and complains all day.......get off your fat arse and contribute to the community .....

 

 

 

I'm not having that. "The guest" DOES lift a finger. How else would he type this interminable drivel.
