Due to the tremendous support from Angsana Laguna Phuket, Banyan Tree Phuket, Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, The Pavilions Phuket, Trisara, Shambhala, Laguna Services and Dream Phuket Hotel & Spa, a total of 146 staff members last Wednesday (Mar 18) collected approximately 500kg of mostly plastic garbage from 10km of roadways.

Phuket Hotels Association President Anthony Lark said, “This is a great achievement and it shows how a group of hotels can collaborate to make our community a more beautiful place, in addition to giving our staff something positive to do, helping lift their spirits in these worrying and stressful times.”

In a release marking the cleanup, the association said, “This initiative has set a great example, and the Phuket Hotels Association plans on sharing this success with all its 74 member hotels in the hope that we can do this island-wide, using these difficult times to do some positive for our beautiful island.”

Please come to LAyan Soi 7 where assorted lazy types toss all manner of garbage along the road. I've been picking up my neighbor's single instant coffee packets for years now.

Thumbs up!Driving through Phuket’s Back Streets it looks a lot like to drive to a rubbish dump litter and building debris all over the place and nobody seems to care about. It’s time that the Island get cleaned up and become the Tropical Dream Island before ignorant carless humans littered it with trash. Educate the uneducated, if they don’t listen impose fine or community work to clean it u
