Plastic bag ban has reduced Phang Nga park litter, director says

PHANG NGA — Ao Phang Nga National Park has seen less litter in its turquoise waters since the park implemented a ban on plastic bags at the beginning of April, the park director said Monday.

 

A month-long ban on plastic bags in the park in southern Thailand with the iconic limestone towers featured in the 1974 James Bond film “The Man With the Golden Gun” has seen a considerable reduction in litter, according to officials Monday.

The tour boat operators also deserve some credit.

On a recent trip to this park, we were told that everything, including cigarette butts, had to go in the bins on the boat.

It worked well and I didn't see any rubbish over the side at all.

The operators were also very safety conscious, and insisted on life jackets being worn when we did some kayak trips.
