Husband and wife duo call for Thais to clean up beaches before reopening

A husband and wife duo in Hua Hin Thailand have taken it upon themselves to clean up the beaches of Prachuap Kiri Khan and has called on Thais around the country to help do the same ahead of the country opening up on November 1.

The duo, who run a blog called Life out Loud, said that they wanted to raise awareness about the trash and pollution issue on Thailand’s many beaches which has continued despite the lack of tourists.

The duo say that if they can make an impact on their local beach then Thais everywhere can do the same by helping organize beach cleanups.

The worry is that once tourism returns, the situation would be even worse than it is now. In one tweet, Life Out Loud said that the pollution they’ve been collecting is only local pollution and that it was bad enough without foreign tourists.

The lockdown was “an opportunity” for Thais to reshape their local environment and make sure the beaches were protected so all could enjoy it.
