You can refuse to accept any plastic bags especially plastic carry bags.

Its not true. That is typical thai bashing and thai hating common on this forum. Thais have been at the forefront of eco activities for decades, land and forests conservation,  campaigns against damns

And don't accept straws for drinks.  Always carry a cloth tote bag or light backpack with you for your purchases.  Bring your own reusable food storage containers if you expect to get take-away or bri

Yes some are, but a lot are too busy burning lands and forests, particularly in Chiang Mai where 

the OP lives. Have you ever heard about this problem and the local inaction about it?

Definitely NOT this forum for obvious reasons.

Burning forests is effectively carbon neutral. As is burning sugar cane and rice paddies. 

 

Did all the eco warriors posting walk/swim/ride a bike to Thailand?

Or did they fly. Have a long hard look at yourself before giving holier than though advice.

 

Ideally you should never have travelled more than five miles from the place of your birth and live a middle ages lifestyle. Basically starve and freeze in the dark.

Then you can give advice.

you might want to check out the vegetarian society on mahidol road weekdays around 11 30 and not just eat there....

How does that relate to being environmental? There is no link with being vegetarian and the environment apart from trying to fit in with the 'hip' crowd. Vegetables don't need pumped water, don't need to be transported?  Get a good feeling buying organic veggies after driving 30 klms in a fuel guzzling SUV?

 

Sorry, I've had enough of that BS being rammed down my throat and its time to fight back in my opinion.

But, but, whatabout..

 

And what's with the right wingers' oral fixation about ramming things down their throats?

You would have to ask them, I don't see myself as left or right wing.

I'm the one they both hate - an independent thinker.

Oral fixation? I hope you are talking about toothpaste and clean teeth.

New to Thailand and am now living in Chiang Mai. Will probably be here for around 1 year and I try to be as environment friendly as I can

By being environment friendly you can be considered a threat to culture !

Don't fight...assimilate 555

TVF cliches from jaded contributors. A littered beach does not mean there are not many Thai environmental activists.  But their problem is that these brave Thais are up against the power elite, the army, the police, the timber mafia etc. In Thailand environmental activism can be a death sentence

Haha, with pleasure If I had any experience about making an NGO and if I would stay here longer than one year

Why are you here for one year.  Are evangelicals paying you?
