PHUKET:-- More than 600 people turned up to take part in the underwater and beach cleanup held at Karon Beach yesterday (Dec 3), ahead of Thai Environment Day today (Dec 4).

 

The underwater cleanup was led by divers from the local expat dive business community, with many more volunteers collecting trash from the sand.

 

In total, 63 kilograms of rubbish was collected by a team of 12 divers taking part in the underwater cleanup alone, said Wanchalerm Hemsalamart from the Karon Municipality Health Division.

I will never knock people who try. I have been trying for the last 40 years.

Thailand is more environmentally conscious than ever before.  When 600 members of the community pitches in, it shows that they care. 

People in the US were "litterbugs" before but a major PR campaign to reduce littering changed that.  

Maybe the government could help by placing a few more trash receptacles in convenient spots with respective collection as well of course.
