PHUKET: A small cleanup by just seven people at Mai Khao yesterday (May 25) saw some 40kg of marine debris and trash recovered from the beach in just two hours.

 

The cleanup was organised by officers from Phuket’s Sirinath National Park, park chief Natthawat Nuisriram explained to The Phuket News.

 

The cleanup began at 10am, with five park officers taking part and two local residents lending a hand, he explained.

I frequent a couple of beaches on Phuket almost every day (before restrictions) and I collect on any one visit 3 bags of trash every time.

lets all take a bag Or 2 n collect trash n see what this impact it has on the places we love 💕

Afraid of aeroplanes? 

Normally a pristine beach when winter storms dont leave a little flotsam on the high tide line. It's a long way from Patong if that's what's scared you.

it's nice to see awareness like this.   maybe in 40 years  there will be a different attitude.   I remember the time I did the boat crossing of the Chayo Prya near the Royal  temple.  the amount of plastic trash per sq m was astounding.   much if this starts many km away from the ocean.  all the dumping in the kings amd even streets of BKK eventually get to the ocean.  

First order of business is to have trash cans everywhere and putting trash on the sidewalk should be considered littering with 1000 Baht fine.   if the police need to make money they need to just go to intersections and stop people who throw cigarette butts out 1,000 baht 5 times and it's 20,000 baht

In our throw away society man has developed some bad habits. I am not sure who is more irresponsible, Thais or tourists?

 

Why stop with the beach? Spread the word. Take your garbage home, bag it, bin it. Lets clean up Thailand.

This trash comes from the sea.
