The objectives were to raise awareness to people about the environment and to maintain and sustain the wellbeing of the environment. Patong is a world tourist destination that people around the world always visit. So the cleanlyness of Patong will make it more appealing to tourists and their desire to return.

President of the Muslim for Peace Foundation, Mr Pramod Samadee had said on opening of the activity that, “Today everyone has shown a pretty good conscience, caring for Patong’s environment. And especially showcasing that Muslims take care of the environment that God has created. In addition, Mr Pramod said that, "I do not want this activity be a one time activity, but I want to keep this going and expand to other areas in Phuket. I wish to thank all the agencies who have come together to do a great activity."

The representative of Muslim for Peace Foundation Branch Phuket, Mr Daris Sentanu said that the reason for choosing this area was that it was the last point before the waste will flow into the sea. And Mr Daris added that, “Representatives of Patong municipality said that we collected almost three tons of garbage today.”
