Turn trash into treasure!
Encourage thai people to reuse, recycle and upcycle waste.

The Phuket Governor didn't release his mind on details.
He just touched a important problem we all long time are already aware of on Phuket.
But perhaps the Phuket Governor can 'order' shopping centers, 7-Elevens, 24 Hour shops to stop using plastic bags, and start using recycled paper bags instead?

It is a simple order, but with great Phuket environment improvement.
Next step is thinking about all that swerving Styrofoam stuff.
Work out a solution for that, Mr Governor.  Please?

Don't forget, it helps to keep the Phuket water drains clean and free of rubbish too!
A win-win situation For when next raining season starts. Less flooding.

Perhaps a study trip to Singapore or South Korea to see how they handle adequate and successful such environment matters?

There are countries which are at their incinerator plants make fertilizer out of separated garbage.
They sell and ship it to African countries and China.
Do thai realize how much money they can make with selling/shipping 'garbage'?

Complete stooge that has no idea what he's talking about.  This 3R program is nothing new, and is used in more developed places where people learned 30 years ago not to throw trash out the car window.  The crisis is so urgent here, that what is needed is an immediate ban on plastic bags and styrofoam containers.  These idiots working at 7-11 shouldn't be putting a pack of cigarettes into a plastic bag, but I see it happening.  I bought a candy bar the other night, and the idiot tried to put it in a bag...just clueless.  There is nothing but opportunity here, since really nothing is being done, but without a change in mentality and awareness...ain't nothing changing.

Can the Phuket Governor confirm that all the incinerators are working at full capacity?
The total capacity is enough to handle the daily amount Phuket waste.
To start recycling is a wise initiative.
Start with separate bins for glass/tins/plastic/paper.
Bins with different color.

Stop/terminate the shops plastic bag culture on Phuket!
Give customers paper bags ( recycled paper!) or tell them to bring their own canvas shopping bag.
No more plastic bags.

It is ridiculous that you already get a plastic back when you buy toothpaste only..

But here we go again,.. the governor talks, but no further details.
So sickening how thai authorities always mind wise launch something ( bla bla) without a real launch.
Talking and ordering from arm chair in aircon office, fine.
And now, what is next?
