Has nothing to do with politics, a simple fact, this is Thailand, whether you agree or not you are a visitor, start thinking everything wrong is the Thais fault and you will create problems you can not escape. You post a message in Thai in an english language website , do you not think people would want to know what it is you are asking them to print and post around town. On a side note Martin and I are friends for many many years , I jack with all the time about his BFF trump

Its simply a flyer attempting to educate about the dangers of burning plastic - there is no need to get political or try and over complicate things. Yes we know we are farangs and are lower than cockroaches here, but we all want a better future for this planet and preventing more plastic entering it is part of that, hence our efforts on the beach and with this flyer.

If it was in English it would not be read by its target audience. It has also been distributed on Thai language facebook pages. It seems no matter what you do someone will pick an argument with it.

Just like to let everyone know that one month from today 15th Sept is World Cleanup Day.
This is an event which has been running 10 years and its aim is for volunteers from all over the world to come together to rid our planet of trash – cleaning up litter from our beaches, rivers, forests, and streets.
The planning for this massive event has been ongoing for 2 years and staff have been working around the clock in preparation with millions of volunteers in over 150 countries.
Just look up “World Cleanup Day” on Google and you will find out loads more information.
If anyone in the Bang Saphan area would like to organize a cleanup please get in touch.

Great turnout for World Cleanup Day, 34 volunteers including 10 kids collected almost 100kgs of trash from the beaches around Suan Luang.

I'm just seeing the state of Bang Saphan's beaches after the recent storms on the Thai National TV News. Far too much for your local chapter of Trash Heroes to deal with.

Do you get help from the authorities when such a load is dumped on your beaches?

No.

In fact we have had to suspend the weekly TH collections until we can find a solution for disposing of the trash we collect. There is nowhere to take it in Bangsaphan and the authorities will not collect it.
